Back in March, Benny The Butcher and Harry Fraud teamed up with The Plugs I Met 2, the sequel to Benny’s 2019 EP The Plugs I Met. The new project saw nine cold cuts with additional features from Fat Joe, Rick Hyde, French Montana, Jim Jones, 2 Chainz, and late rapper Chinx.
“When niggas said they need less trappers and more poets, I kept talkin’ to hustlers that’s more heroic, it’s a difference when you rise out the ghetto, come back and grow it, the game broke my heart in three places, I never show it, close my eyes and the voice in my eardrums tell me ‘fore the Feds come, to turn these bread crumbs to a hedge fund.../”
Throughout the clip, Benny can be seen next to a woman enjoying a bath, on a rooftop overlooking the city, hanging with his Black Soprano Family crew, and watching Scarface — the very film that inspired The Plugs I Met series.
The Plugs I Met 2 follows last year’s Burden of Proof, Benny’s sophomore LP alongside Hit-Boy and saw collaborations alongside the likes of Big Sean, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Freddie Gibbs, Dom Kennedy, Queen Naija, and Benny’s Griselda cohorts Conway The Machine and Westside Gunn. Burden of Proof is also cuurently Benny’s best offering to date, landing him within the top 30 of the Billboard 200 thanks to 19,000 first week album equivalent sales. Presumably, Benny’s already working on a new project — he recently revealed that he’d connected with Chicago’s own Lil Durk, prompting many to think that a studio session took place.
