Benny the Butcher and Hit-Boy just announced their upcoming collab album, Everybody Can’t Go. Right after the 2023 Grammys, the two hip-hop creatives reminded rap listeners that, while there’s much to celebrate, there’s even more greatness coming. Moreover, both artists posted videos of a meet-up on social media, in which Benny freestyles over a beat. On Instagram, both shared their excitement for their work together. “In the gym rn,” the legendary producer posted on Instagram. Whereas he kept it short and sweet, the Griselda rapper was a bit more boastful. “It’s almost my turn again…,” he wrote. “Me and @hitboy undefeated !!!”
From Benny’s cold raps and Hit-Boy’s booming beat, this newly announced album should be a treat to witness. “Work I’m cuttin’ more times than Kyrie been traded,” Benny rapped. In fact, that’s a timely shot towards Kyrie Irving, who just traded to the Dallas Mavericks. “I was one foot in the door after that freestyle with Flex. I was one foot in the game at Jay-Z’s house with West. Now you see how I clean house and see wild success.” Although he cut it off towards the end, the Buffalo MC ate up that instrumental with his bars.
Last time that Benny and Hit-Boy linked long-term was for Benny’s 2020 album Burden of Proof, which Hit-Boy entirely produced. On his announcement post, the Buffalo native penned an anticipatory message along with a picture of him at the Grammys. “Sometimes the experience of the journey is a better feeling than reaching the destination,” he expressed. “You won’t ever kno unless u make it there…but remember ‘EVERYBODY CAN’T GO’ The Album produced by @hitboy…Loading”
Meanwhile, both artists teased fans with this collab after an incredibly successful year for them. For example, Hit-Boy contributed to some of the year’s best hip-hop albums. In fact, he capped off the year with a contender for the best in Nas’s King’s Disease III, continuing their high-quality series. On his end, Benny the Butcher released Tana Talk 4, which for many fans was his most consistent and engaging album to date.
