Baltimore Rapper .M.E.N.A.C.E. Brings it All to the Table on 'Civilized Savages'

Baltimore is a city of culture and charm. The people are authentic and the music has a pulse like none other.  While the city is not dripping with mainstream hip hip artists, the underground rap scene is thick. One of Baltimore's finest up-and-coming hip hop artists is an emcee known as .M.E.N.A.C.E. 

The 28 year old rapper recently dropped his album, "Civilized Savages".  The 10 track album contains bangers like The Crown, Mind of a Menace, and Aint Nothing New. This project gives a real reflection of the life and mind of .M.E.N.A.C.E. ... From the grit and grime, to the struggle and come-up, its a snapshot of his ghetto chronicle. 

"You could drip sauce; Imma drip truth"

Born in McCulloh Homes,public housing project in West Baltimore that served as a setting for the HBO series “The Wire” but he moved all around the city.  His raw upbringing is where he learned all his life lessons and morals and principles which he implements in his music. On Aint Nothin New, he raps, "yeah my city violent, but my city is vibrant."

On Make Believe, he shows off his lyrical skills as he spits, "he a crash dummy; you a real killa". The beat leaves room for you to really dive into what he's spitting. And there's some real street wisdom in his content. It's a project definitely worth a stream.

"F*cked up in the head, just tryna hold on"

On the track, Destiny, he says you ain't gotta trap to get rich" -- a motto he's putting into action. .M.E.N.A.C.E. started his own entertainment company called High Table Entertainment with his cousin, Christopher Cheatham.
