There is no disputing that Benny The Butcher has arrived. With anticipation now at a fever pitch, Benny puts a bow on his and Griselda’s genre-shifting year with his new album Burden Of Proof; an album that aligns the best rapper alive, with the hottest producer (Hit-Boy) of 2020.
Mastered by Guru, Burden of Proof is The Butcher’s official level up. After announcing his new album last week with “Timeless” featuring Lil Wayne and Big Sean, on the eve of Burden Of Proof’s release, Benny shares a visual for “Legend,” which as he states, was supposed to be the lead single. The video also was premiered by Rolling Stone.
“Hit-Boy contacted me and said lets work. We linked up in LA and the first song we did together was fire. The first song we recorded was “Legend” and it was supposed to be the first single” he commented to Rolling Stone. “The shit was so good, we were just like let’s keep going. And our chemistry was so great and the music was so good and really happening organically, and before we knew it, we had an album.”
Benny The Butcher’s Burden Of Proof will be released on 10-16-20 and features appearances from Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Freddie Gibbs, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, Queen Najia and Dom Kennedy. Burden Of Proof is executive-produced by Benny The Butcher, Hit-Boy and Westside Gunn.
