Smoke DZA, Benny The Butcher & Pete Rock Share First Track Off Their Collaborative EP

Cover

Power trio.

BENNY THE BUTCHER is easily one of 2019’s MVPs. Smoke DZA has been serving consistent quality for years. Pete Rock needs no introduction. These three artists are coming together to give us a six-track EP on October 18th, titled Statue of Limitations.

Our first taste of the EP, “Drug Rap,” is just as smooth and menacing as you’d expect from this trio. Smoke DZA and Benny have the vocal tones and dense flows that sound at home over the type of jazzy sample flips that Pete Rock specializes in. The EP is sure to be a perfect Halloween treat packed with bars. The tracklist shows that Benny enlisted fellow members of Griselda Records, Conway the Machine and Westside Gunn, to contribute to the project. Styles P will also make an appearance, further ensuring that the EP will be a top-notch lyrical affair.

Smoke DZA & Pete Rock previously collaborated for the 2016 album, Don’t Smoke Rock.

Quotable Lyrics

I trapped out the Monte Carlo, had to dip through the city
Now my ego way too big to fit in the Bentley
Tied with the Gs, that’s how I kept my rep
I’m gettin’ checks, now check, show these n****s how to hustle step by step

– BENNY THE BUTCHER

City Girls’ JT Sounds Discouraged & Over It In Audio Message From Prison
Volume 0%

Wise words from JT.

On Wednesday, JT of City Girls was released from prison and made a big return with “JT First Day Out.” The song served more as a statement of her being ready to take over the game and a threat to all those speaking on her name. She didn’t dive very deep into her prison experience, other than her rapping: “Went in the same day Drake dropped “In My Feelings” / I was in prison on my bunk, really in my feelings.”

However, last night, JT felt an urge to share some of the advice that she learned when locked up that really stuck with her. The words of wisdom were intended for women specifically, cautioning them against the duplicitous ways of men and instructing them to remain independent. She drew lessons from the many women who ended up in prison alongside her because “they kept it real w/ men & those men did not keep it real with them.” JT made sure to emphasize that these women did not find themselves in this situation because they were “stupid,” but because they were “influenced in a state of vulnerability.” The self-help speech ended with a call to action, encouraging women to take men’s money, but not trust them. On that note, let the scamming begin (or continue)!

CITYGIRL🌃@ThegirlJT

I was locked up w/ so many women who were in prison because they kept it real w/ men & those men did not keep it real with them! I want y’all to know that whatever you do DONT let a man influence you in the moment of “love” if he love you he wouldn’t put you in situations PERIOD.

Bhad Bhabie Trashes Jermaine Dupri After Female Rap Comments: “Suck My D*ck”
Volume 0%

Rapsody thinks Hip Hop can truly benefit.

Rapsody recently sat down with HipHopDX to discuss the comments made by Jermaine Dupri about “stripper rap.” As you may recall, Jermaine Dupri made some controversial comments about female rappers. He told PEOPLE TV that he didn’t have a favorite female rapper right now because there wasn’t anyone artist standing out more than the others. He also said much of the music sounded the same as if it was “strippers rapping.” In an interview with the Atlanta Black Star, Dupri further added: “I can’t give you a favorite because I feel like they’re all talking about the same thing. I was talking about these people’s names they gave me. I said, ‘It’s like strippers rapping,’ and it went crazy.” Since then, many have clapped back at Jermaine. Rapsody, herself, delivered an answer via bars at the BET Hip Hop Awards. In this new interview with HipHopDX, she goes in-depth.

“I always looked at it like it’d be dope to have balance and give everybody the same opportunity […]. I want Tierra Whack to have that same opportunity as everybody else. Leikeli-47, as well as Megan The Stallion and Cardi B, because we need all flavors of women. Everybody don’t want to listen to me 24/7 because I don’t want to listen to me 24/7. I need a different vibe. I’m about to go to the club and turn up! I’m about to play ‘Bodak Yellow.’” Check out the interview above.
