Benny The Buthcher has dropped a brand-new track titled “3:30 In Houston,” addressing a shooting that has since left the rapper recovering in a wheelchair.

The incident that happened in Houston, Texas, where Benny was held at gunpoint during an armed robbery, is described in the song as an act of karma. Benny reflects on past occurances that he believes contributed to his ill-fated outcome: “Rolls Royce truck, they said we stood out, only one mistake, I ain’t have a lookout,” writes Benny. “Quarter in jewels, shoppin’ at Walmart, take me out the hood, but can’t take the hood out.” The song carries on with grim instrumentals that provice an expressive backdrop to Benny’s pensive lyrics, highlighting lines like “Out the hospital to a private jet, the bullet really ain’t damage nothin’ / N***s would’ve been in my position, I bet they would’ve hit the panic button, man.”
