Menace is making his hoop dreams become reality.
The English producer, best known for crafting the beat for Desiigner’s Hot 100-topping “Panda,” has teamed with Trinidad James and King Chip for his new single “Kyrie,” premiering exclusively on Billboard.com.
The standalone single, explains Menace, came from a studio session in L.A. with James. “It was around the NBA playoffs and the Cavs were playing the Warriors on the big screen in the studio, and Kyrie [Irving] did a crazy move and Trinidad got the hook from it, saying ‘I feel like I'm Kyrie you can't check me,’” he says. “So I just sat on the the record for a while and two weeks ago I turned on SportsCenter and Kyrie is the talk of the town with his trade to the Celtics. So it was only right I release the record now with all this Kyrie hype.”
