Benny The Butcher drops ‘Johnny P’s Caddy’ feat. J.Cole and talks ‘Tana Talk 4’.
Over the past four years, Benny The Butcher has been on an unprecedented run of progression, including; Tana Talk 3 (2018), The Plugs I Met (2019), Griselda’s major label Shady debut group-album WWCD, (2019), Burden Of Proof with Hit-Boy (2020), The Plugs I Met 2 with Harry Fraud (2021), Pyrex Picasso (2021) and a veritable slew of high-profile guest appearances with artists such as Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, DJ Premier, DMX, The Lox, Russ and contributed to two Grammy Nominated albums (Royce 5’9”’s The Allegory and Freddie Gibbs & Alchemist’s Alfredo).
In between, Benny also founded his own label imprint, BSF, started his own Sports Marketing Firm, starred in his first motion picture (Conflicted), became a spokesperson for his hometown Buffalo Bills, created the team’s official theme song and performed on Late Night TV and the BET Music Awards.
But now, with his first project of 2022, Benny takes it back to where the tipping point of his superstardom originated, with the fourth installment of his influential Tana Talk series with Tana Talk 4. Tana Talk 3 was released in 2018 and instantly became a fan favorite and the crossroads where Benny’s burgeoning street ethos catapulted to his first breakout success on the charts; and where his buzz became inescapable.
In a true return to form, Benny tapped The Alchemist and Daringer to once again handle all of the production for Tana Talk 4 and along with the announcement of his new project, Benny has also released TT4’s first single and video, “Johnny P’s Caddy,” which features J.Cole and is produced by The Alchemist.
“Johnny P’s Caddy” is tremendously symbolic and sentimental for Benny, as the single title references the classic old school Caddy his Father owned during Benny’s formative years. The same Caddy his Father used to transport Benny and Westside Gunn around in and listen to music together; which would prove to be very influential in shaping Benny’s musical palette.
“Any rapper will tell you when you’re working with someone like Cole, it’s like a match of wits; you gotta go crazy, because you know he is. Iron sharpens iron” Benny commented. “You want it to be an environment where someone has the presence to push you. It’s dope!”
