Rising Hartford, Connecticut star Fuego Base is making a name for himself with amazing wordplay, along with an innate ability for storytelling. After signing with Benny the Butcher’s very own MNRK Music Group imprint Black Soprano Family Records last year, Fuego joined Benny & Rick Hyde for Charlie Sloth’s Fire in the Booth & he followed that up by appearing with Westside Gunn later that year for the “Intro” on BSF’s Long Live DJ Shay compilation album.
Fuego is now taking the next step with his official BSF debut Biggest Since Camby (the title of the project is an ode to former Hartford, CT basketball star Marcus Camby) which will be released on 4-20-23 and features appearances from Benny the Butcher, Sheek Louch, 38 Spesh, Uncle Murda, O.T. the Real & his fellow BSF family members.
“I want to make a big impact on the game, and that’s why my album is called Biggest Since Camby” Fuego Base explains. “We are from Hartford, and it’s a forgotten place, but with the platform, Benny has provided me & being a member of BSF, I can shine some light on the city. I’m really rapping too! Tell my momma I’m a rapper.”
“I don’t care what nobody says, Fuego Base is one of the hungriest rappers in the game right now. I know because I remember being in that beginning phase & I can see that fire in him” Benny the Butcher proclaims. “From being locked up to getting COVID to losing his mom, he still got that fire in him. Fuego, you & Hartford deserve this! Biggest Since Camby 4-20!”
