THE SONG: Thanksgiving.
WHO: Benny The Butcher Produced by Harry Fraud.
WHY IT’S HOT… Griselda records standout and BSF boss Benny the Butcher has made quite a name for himself over the past few years. His guest appearances with his family/labelmates and his incredible solo projects have catapulted him to the top of the rap food chain as far as skills, performance, and artistic credibility. Benny continues to add to his burgeoning Hall of Fame resume with “Thanksgiving”, the first single off of his “Plugs I Met 2” album with Harry Fraud.
As the title suggests, this heartfelt piece of audio finds The Butcher retracing his steps in life and music while thanking the higher power for all the successes, heartbreaks, and brushes with jail & death. He even alludes to the gunpoint robbery and shooting in Houston he experienced in November 2020 along with the rehabilitation process he’s currently going through due to gunshot injuries.
Many rappers speak of “reality” fueling their content, but very few back up those statements in their music. Benny is one of the rare artists that gives his fans an honest and uncompromising look into his life via his art. This is what separates him from the rest. Enjoy “Thanksgiving” and the man who made it.
