If I sat down for dinner with Benny the Butcher, I’d probably ask him the same questions I did in this new interview for Okayplayer. Super conversational, we talked Another Bad Creation’s “Iesha,” his friendship with Raekwon, and his early years in Buffalo, New York. I was late to Griselda but seriously, the only thing better than their recent streak is how quick their rise was (Check out Hitler on Steroids, it’s crammed with back-to-back good tracks).
Brothers Westside Gunn and Conway the Machine recently signed to Shady Records. and hopefully won’t deviate far from what made them great to begin with. More than just a pleasant surprise, Benny’s Tana Talk 3 is one of the year’s best releases– extra nod to Daringer for his consistent production and mastery of the mournful soul loop.
