Benny the Butcher Releases New Project [Video]
Benny the Butcher and Harry Fraud have released a new project, complete with a billboard in Times Square in New York City. The 9-song project features guest verses from Chinx, Fat Joe, 2 Chainz, Jim Jones, Rick Hyde, and French Montana. As a matter of fact, Joey Crack's verse on the project, on a song called "Talkin' Back," has sparked some controversy. He raps about the "Wuhan Virus," which many people, including Donald Trump, have used to blame Chinese people for the spread of COVID-19. In his verse, Joe raps,
“Threw that white up in the pot, gave ’em pipe dreams/And watch it spread like the Wuhan Virus/Do ’em dirty for the low like Wu-Tang ’Sirus (ODB).”
Aside from that, Benny is bringing the Buffalo heat, droppin' that classic, grimy hip hop. No bubblegum here. And the visual, above the police station in Times Square in NYC...classic!
Those Buffalo Kids have been making money moves. Westside Gunn recently opened his store by the same name in the Walden Galleria. It's had a line ever since. It's a beautiful thing to see these boys dominating and representing Buffalo all the way! I love the see them really putting their feet on the necks of the industry and the hip hop world. I hope their success opens the doors for many more Buffalo artists to take the stage too, Buffalo has lots of talent. People sleep on the artists in the city, but I listen to the indie artists in the 716 each week, picking the songs for the 716 Power Jam and Homegrown Heat. For a place so cold, we stay lit!
