The Butcher coming… and considering my skin color, I’ll stop there.
Back in the summer of 2019, fresh off the release of Tana Talk 3, Benny the Butcher kept the stove running hot with The Plugs I Met. And now, after dropping projects with his Griselda family (WWCD), Hit-Boy (Burden of Proof), Smoke DZA and Pete Rock (Statue of Limitations), and his BSF crew (The Respected Sopranos), he’s back at it with The Plugs I Met 2.
Unlike the first go around with Alchemist, Daringer, Beat Butcha and the late DJ Shay handling the beats, Plugs 2 is fully laced by Harry Fraud.
“I recorded both Burden Of Proof and The Plugs I Met 2 at the same time, so it’s the same headspace; but a different energy,” Benny says. “I recorded Burden Of Proof in Cali with Hit-Boy and The Plugs I Met 2 in Brooklyn with Harry and you can hear that influence.”
Ahead of the project’s release next week (3/19), Benny the Butcher and Harry Fraud have dropped the first single, “Thanksgiving.”
Press play below and keep scrolling for the Plugs 2 tracklist – which features Fat Joe, Jim Jones, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Rick Hyde, and the late Chinx – and Benny’s “Fire in the
Booth Crib” freestyle; which reunites him and Charlie Sloth after he and Conway the Machine went absolutely crazy the last time they were on the show.
