My First Brick + 1 On A 1 + 17 Bullets (3 CD Bundle)Benny The Butcher
GET ON DOWN EXCLUSIVE!
1 ON A 1
Benny The Butcher has made a name for himself along with the rest of his acclaimed Griselda crew for bringing a sense of danger back to underground hip-hop. Alongside classic boom-bap production, Benny is a consummate practitioner of truly gritty and grimey street rap, coming from places of drug wars, shoot-em-ups, and urban hell.
Though Benny The Butcher and the rest of Griselda are boom-bap practitioners first, this is not to suggest that was always the case, or even that he would not be open to sound experimentation. Take Benny's 2016's 1 On A 1, which recasts his usual threads of city bleakness against comparatively contemporary trap beats. It's a well that Benny wouldn't return to, and stands out as a remarkably solid oddity in the Butcher's catalogue, featuring guest appearances from Rick Hyde, Klass Murda, and G Herbo among others, and of course; top-tier rhymes from the Butcher himself.

Bible On The Coffee Table
Between 2015 and 2016 a lot of iconic records came out of Buffalo, NY and brought Griselda and Black Soprano Family on the map as some of the most prolific crews in the game in the last few years. Around that time Benny The Butcher dropped a couple legendary bodies of work and "17 Bullets" is definitely one of them. These recordings easily captures the purest essence of Benny's music and features legendary tracks such as "Cold November", "The Hunter" featuring Skyzoo as well as bonus track "Dirty Needles" featuring Conway The Machine. This is a certified street classic.
