Benny the Butcher talks about Jay Z telling him not to do the cover of XXL! Benny was a guest on David Banner's podcast and told the story of Hov telling him not to do the XXL Freshmen cover. Benny explains that he was at Jay's house, telling Jay about the opportunity he had to be on the cover, but Jay was unimpressed! He listened to Jay and it paid off in the long run. Benny and Griselda Records have been putting in work for years and it's paying off! The Buffalo Kids have been making noise and putting the 716 on the music map!

In other news, Griselda Records released a new video "Dr. Birds," directed by Hype Williams. It's giving me Wu Tang Clan vibes! Reading the comments on Youtube, you can feel the vibes. The common comment is that they are bringing real hip hop back!
