Today, Benny The Butcher and Harry Fraud unveil their new collaborative project The Plugs I Met 2, which contains nine dope cuts (pun intended) and additional features from French Montana, Rick Hyde, Fat Joe, and late rapper Chinx. among others.
Accompanying the new release is a visual for the standout cut “Plug Talk,” which features 2 Chainz and sees the artists sticking to the G code lyrically:
“In interviews talkin’ plug talk, got my name off of drug talk, yeah, uh, in interviews talkin’ plug talk, got my name off of drug talk, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeahIn interviews talkin’ plug talk, got my name off of drug talk…/”
The video comes courtesy of The Wizard and begins with Benny speaking to a reporter about his career and the now-infamous shooting that took place in Houston. Benny also joins 2 Chainz in a “Hustler’s Anonymous” support group, which is presumably geared toward individuals who grind so hard that it’s detrimental to their health.
The Plugs I Met 2 follows last year’s Burden of Proof, a collaborative release between Benny and Hit-Boy that saw 12 cuts and additional appearances from Rick Ross, Freddie Gibbs, Big Sean, Lil Wayne, Dom Kennedy, Queen Naija, and fellow Griselda comrades Westside Gunn and Conway The Machine. The project was the biggest for Benny and his camp to date, landing within the top 30 of the Billboard 200 thanks to 19,000 units sold during its first week of release.
Outside of his collaboration with Benny, Harry Fraud also teamed up with Jim Jones for the February drop The Fraud Department, which boasted collaborations with the likes of Belly, Dave East, Trav, Maino, Big Body Bes, and Marc Scibilia. Last year, he teamed up with Curren$y for the projects The OutRunners, The Director’s Cut, and Bonus Footage.
