AllMusic Review by

Latino rapper Capone has been churning out a steady stream of hardcore gangsta rap since the late 1990s, and 2006's MENACE TO SOCIETY continues that trend. With help from his partner Noreaga, Capone lays down the gritty street narratives his fans expect over bumping tracks that favor simple, repetitive, samples. "King of New York" rips a page out of the Kanye West production book and features a sped-up vocal sample, while "Roll With Me" rides over a slow, surging jeep-beat. While this is not the rapper's most essential release, Capone fans will find plenty to appreciate here.
