2006 birthed rap duo “Da Threat” from East Orange, New Jersey. Group members “80” and “Wax” were greatly influenced and inspired by their older brother who was once named Da Threat.
As young kids they knew rapping was something they really wanted to do. Music became their way out of the reality they lived in. They started writing on their own and admiring greats such as 2pac, Biggie, Jadakiss and 50 cent. As they developed, 80 and Wax became more eager and determined to live their dream. Even embracing their own ethnicity the two embellish their words from listening to the great Bob Marley, Sanchez and Buju Banton. Between the years of 2011 - 2016 Da Threat performed over 200 shows along with releasing three mixtapes and videos. 80 and Wax took their group into the spotlight where they solidified a spot in the underground constantly making their presence felt.
