(AllHipHop News) Roc Nation continues to expand its reach with new signings. Following the news of a joint venture with Meek Mill's Dream Chaser label, the Jay-Z fronted company is now working with Benny The Butcher too. The Griselda/Shady Records representative is being managed by the same company that handles Big Sean, DJ Khaled, Jim Jones, Lil Uzi Vert, Mariah Carey, Meek Mill, Miguel, Rihanna, The Lox, and Yo Gotti.
Benny released his Tana Talk 3 project in 2018 with contributions from Westside Gunn, Conway, Royce da 5'9", Meyhem Lauren, and Melanie Rutherford. The Buffalo, New York native returned with The Plugs I Met in June. His latest 7-track EP features Pusha T, Black Thought, Jadakiss, Conway, and more.
Fans of the Griselda collective can look for the crew's Shady Records debut compilation album, What Would Chine Gun Do, in September. Meanwhile, Benny The Butcher dropped off a music video for the Alchemist-produced “5 To 50" featuring India off The Plugs I Met.
"Just like the track, the '5 to 50' video is inspired by real-life events. It’s my side of the story, along with India’s side of the story, and it depicts how those stories collide," says Benny. "I bring you to Montana Ave, the block where I am from and illustrate my lifestyle and how some of those lifestyle choices affected India. This was our life and it captures both perspectives."
