(AllHipHop News) The long-awaited mixtape, The Magnificent 757’s, from veteran musician Stevie J, and Hip-Hop businessman, Benzio, is scheduled to be released. The postponed project will be available Friday night (Jan. 22), as confirmed by a press release. Big Kap and Armadale Vodka have been instrumental to helping secure the release date.
In the past, both Stevie J and Benzio appeared on the hit reality show, Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta. The dynamic duo, were once as close as brothers. When their relationship deteriorated so did their desire to pursue the project. Looking past their personal drama, Big Kap – who was once Biggie Smalls’ DJ – rescued the situation.
Viewed as “one of Hip-Hop’s most influential DJ’s,” Big Kap, has earned a respected rapport with both with both men. “I guarantee you people are gonna be surprised when they hear this. Me myself I’ve known Benzino and Stevie for a long time and their contributions to Hip Hop speak for themselves,” expressed the veteran DJ.
Bridging the gap between Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Big Band, the soulful mixtape is everything “all wrapped up in one.” Acclaimed singer, Money Marquise, teams up with Stevie J and Benzino to create a standout track. Although Stevie J and Benzino’s reality-based drama once detoured their project, Big Kap went on to state, “Now I know what happened between them on Love & Hip-Hop, but I’m not here for that. I’m just here to bring you some dope music, and the album’s definitely that.”
The world renowned turntableist then suggests that The Magnificent 757’s could perhaps foster reconciliation between Stevie J. and Benzino. Will this project help to resurrect the bro-mance between Stevie J and ‘Zino?
