We’re nearly a year removed from the release of Desiigner’s breakout hit, “Panda.” It’s the single that went on to top Billboard charts and crack top ten on at least ten other charts, nationally. It’s a song you can’t evade—no matter how hard you try. Not only did the Brooklyn native earn himself a number one song in the country, he would go on to be signed by Kanye West—in order to further his career with the G.O.O.D Music label. But it was Menace, a 22-year-old producer out of Manchester U.K.—who created the production for “Panda”—which originally was a Ace Hood/Meek Mill type-beat that he placed on Youtube in 2014. So how did this ambitious being go from dreams to reality?
We caught up with Menace to talk about the success around “Panda,” motivation, and what he’ll have coming in the near future.
