Benny the Butcher has long been Buffalo royalty.

As his fourth solo studio release — Everybody Can’t Go — prepares to drop on Jan. 26, the rapper stopped by The ETCs to chop it up with host Eddie Gonzalez. The two discussed his wide-ranging career and how his newest release marks a new chapter.

In 2021, the rapper inked a new deal with Def Jam after years as a founding member of the Griselda roster. With a new label engine behind him, Benny can already see a difference in what’s possible. From production resources to the publicity engine, he’s ready for his newest release to make a massive impact.

Despite a new label, Benny stays consistent. He’s never had — and never will — have time for Twitter trolls who disrespect his craft. He’s happy for the villain edit. The truth is, he’s thriving. With the Def Jam brass behind him, he’s got more opportunity to let people know what he’s about while taking new musical measures. He’s confident his most recent release is an instant classic and has the co-signs from Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and Jadakiss to prove it.

Lock in as Benny the Butcher and Eddie break down the biggest topics in hip-hop, Buffalo sports, and much more.
