New Song: Benny The Butcher 18 Wheeler (Ft, Pusha T)
Benny The Butcher 18 Wheeler (Ft Pusha T). The kingpin era is not dead but alive. This is in large part to the efforts of Benny The Butcher (as well as his Griselda compatriots) and Pusha T, the patron saint of cocaina raps. The partnership between these two men sure feels like a it’s a match made in heaven, especially since it’s set on Benny’s musical home turf. If you take a good look at Pusha’s recent run, the majority of it being delivered over relatively polished Kanye West instrumentals; and to now hear him wax poetic over gully, raw production makes for a refreshing marriage of music and lyrics.
In an interview with Complex, Benny The Butcher highlighted the importance that “18 Wheeler” holds to the streets. “The streets have been waiting on this record! Long overdue!” he exclaims. “I’m talking my talk, Push talking his talk. I couldn’t do this project without reaching out to Pusha.” It doesn’t take long for their chemistry to manifest, as The Butcher sets it off with a compelling and deftly-woven depiction of a drug runner’s lifestyle.
Pusha ably seizes the baton, spitting effortless bars like only he can. “Only I can coke rap this glamorous,” boasts Pusha. “The only drug dealer out at fashion week!”
