Mere months after releasing an undisputed AOTY contender for 2020 with Burden Of Proof and making his theatrical acting debut with Conflicted, Benny The Butcher is now undeniably a star. Upon its release, Burden Of Proof was an immediate smash, a fan and critic favorite, and his most commercially successful project to date; #1 at iTunes, #4 at Apple Music and Spotify, and highlighted by Rolling Stone on its Breakthrough top 25 Chart. The project was also singled out on “Best Of 2020 Lists” by esteemed outlets such as Jay-Z’s Annual 2020 Vision Playlist, New York Times, LA Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Complex, Noisey, Stereogum, Billboard, 2dopeboyz, Hotnewhiphop, HipHopDx & Brooklynvegan among many others. Though his own Grammy nominations are surely forthcoming, Benny capped off 2020 with two of his featured verses being included on Grammy-nominated projects; Freddie Gibbs & Alchemist’s Alfredo (“Frank Lucas”) and Royce Da 5’9”s The Allegory (“Upside Down”).
Benny’s new lick; The Plugs I Met 2 continues that upward trajectory, as the project topped the Rap Charts at Apple Music, iTunes and Spotify, while also garnering breakthroughs on the Rolling Stone Charts (#22 on the Top 200 Chart), Billboard (#33) and Hits Double Daily (#28).
Today, Benny & Harry Fraud are back with the visual for “Overall,” featuring Chinx (RIP!).
