Access Granted: The Menace Speaks On the Compton Perspective, Contemporaries, & Truth


From government rations to generational wealth, from affiliated to non-incorporated, from desolate darkness to radiant sunshine—this is Compton, California. Just like Anywhere, USA, Compton is plagued by a gross misunderstanding.

Like his hometown, The Menace formerly Compton Menace, understands what it is to possess a kaleidoscope of contradictions. While previous rambunctious actions have distracted from his art’s sincerity, the Splitarillo business-man is now challenged with dividing his time between creative and corporate responsibilities. Concentrating on the Chris Brown assisted “Put On,” The Menace continues to forge ahead with promoting his latest effort, Ride On My Enemies.

Within this exclusive details emerge pertaining to his Compton perspective to erecting an enduring empire:

Reinforcing Or Defying Expectations:

Everybody got their own look about Compton, you feel me, from movies and music and different sh*t like that. Everybody needs to realize that that types of sh*t goes on in every neighborhood. You feel what I’m saying. When you hear, Compton, it’s not a bad thing. You know, there’s people struggling there and there’s people who got money there at the same time, too… So, I’m just trying to show everybody that you ain’t got to be the muthafu*ka that’s fu*king up to get attention. Even though that’s what everybody knows me from. I’m trying to change it up a little.

Current Perspective on YG and 40 Glocc:

It’s all business with me, you feel what I’m saying. With YG, we really ain’t got no problem, you feel me. It was just a little situation with friends that we have that really had the problem. YG is cool. And with 40 Glocc—40 Glocc is not a person that I feel is that could do anything for me or my career. I would stay away from him.

Personal Truth:

Life is about making a way for the people that you’re bringing up—like your kids and your family… You have fun while you’re doing it and making money. But at the end of the day that only lasts so long for you. You want to that sh*t to last for your kids children—and stuff like that. That’s where I am with it, trying to make sure what I have right now lasts for a couple of generations. So, more people will not have to struggle.
