Towards the beginning of this month, Vallejo up-and-comer Benny delivered a new single titled “Bang It” and announced his next studio project, Different. As promised, the fast-rising 20-year-old’s new Different tape has arrived, giving listeners nine new tracks to digest as the year concludes.
“Other than just the different sound of music I made, I’m a different person,” Benny explains to us, breaking down his choice of Different as a title. “There are different people who are like me who are able to step outside of whatever box they’re in and do something different. Not everybody can do that … The people who understand me will f*ck with Different, and everybody who been wanting to hear something different are still gonna go crazy as soon as they listen.”
Notably, Different showcases its creator’s talents as a singer with street-savvy sensibilities; he blends the main-stage-ready melodies of regional acts like SOB X RBE and Trill Youngins with the sing-song, weary-eyed soul perfected by Louisiana rappers like JayDaYoungan and Fredo Bang.
As far as what listeners can expect once Benny’s current promotional campaign comes to a close, the star-in-the-making is already readying his new major releases. “I’m really just working on putting out more projects,” he tells us. “For sure going to get my label started though.”
