He's all business when it comes to his music but he has a lot of fun with it too. His music will make you smile and it will make you think. Nick Menn is not just another rap artist. He is a creative, gifted and intelligent crafter of words and a beat to go with them. Listen to what Nick Menn has for you and you will be able visualize what he is presenting. He has found the secret to making pictures with words.
He tells about life on the streets but goes well beyond this theme. His insight into life's pleasures and problems and everything in between is something you will relate to. This is a young man whose approach to his music reflects his outlook on so very many topics. Relationships, feelings, thoughts, ideas, plans, memories, concerns, apprehensions – it's all there to provoke you, excite you, entertain you and some of it might even confuse you. Confuse you not because of its complexity but confuse you because we all face situations when we don't know where to turn, what to do, even what to think. You're not alone in Nick's world.
Nick Menn is not far beyond voting age but he has devoted over half of his life not just to making music but to putting it out there where his contemporaries and other people can enjoy it. He grew up surrounded by classic rock then progressed to where rap music started gaining a hold on him but putting labels on what he does is not a high priority for Whiteout. He is what he is, call what he has for you whatever you want.
Nick Menn, the son of Frank and Kristy Menn of Fairview Heights, Illinois which is just 10 minutes from downtown St. Louis across the Mississippi River. He was born on December 11, 1988 and has a brother named Matt. A graduate of Grant Middle School and Belleville East High School, Nick Menn is one for whom it may be said that music is his passion but anyone feeling this way will soon realize characterizing him that way is a major understatement.
St. Louis emcee Nick Menn's new concept album 'Goon Road' is set to release, and is ready to shed light on the dark story-line that is behind the album; all while providing quality music. Following up his first release under his government name in 2012 with "The Good"; Nick Menn, formerly known as Whiteout, is dropping a concept album consisting of enough quality material to be split into three EPs over a three month time span.
Goon Road is the name of an actual road located in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Goon Road has a haunted history, and was also the go-to place for partying and drugs...

Shoutout to Crazy al Cayne at SugarCayne.com who wrote about us being the standout Indie act at A3C this year.
"When we went to Little 5 Points to go check out the Mass Appeal show at the Star Bar for the A3C HipHop Festival we saw this act performing in the parking lot behind the spot. They had this blacked out RV that was setup with a loud ass system and a window for the DJ and a booth with their merch setup next to their van and I was like” this is dope”! The name of the group is named Doorway and not only was I impressed by their presentation and setup I was equally impressed with...Read More

With several projects under WhiteOut belt, The Good is his first full-length solo album using his government name. The Good alludes not only to his love of herbal medicine but also his life and lyrics. Nick Menn showcases a broad spectrum of his lyrical abilities and experiences, as expected from a debut album. The culmination of these lyrics & experiences over a diverse spectrum of sound and well placed features most certainly proves that Nick Menn is delivering The Good....
