Music Career

Bentley has been active in New York City's rap community since XX04 under the pseudonym Orange Arnage. Bentley mentioned in a tell-all interview that he was inspired to "pick up the mic" by a collection of Stretch and Bobbito bootleg tapes given to him by his older cousin.

His first mixtape, released in XX05, was met with modest support from locals. Bentley鈥檚 XX07 follow-up full length tape earned praise from fellow New York City rappers U-God and Jadakiss as well as producer Harry Fraud.

Bentley's sophomore LP was delayed multiple times during negotiations with labels, but ultimately a deal never materialized. After un-mastered demos from these sessions were leaked by hackers, Bentley stepped away from rap professionally and began a career in Blaseball with the Millennials.

Most recently, Bentley can be seen in the background of the music video for "Euro Step" by Buffalo rapper Westside Gunn. Bentley says he still listens "voraciously" but is "too busy with blaseball" to return to making music for now.

Tabloids have speculated that Bentley's sudden retirement from rapping is due to him sacrificing his creative abilities to a dark power in order to make himself and the Millennials stronger at blaseball.

Also he is a Mai Tai.
