The first such project is Benny The Butcher & DJ Drama Presents: Gangsta Grillz x BSF Da Respected Sopranos, to be released on July 31st. The Black Soprano Family (BSF) consists of Rick Hyde, Heem, LoveBoat Luciano, Jonesy & DJ Shay. This project will be followed by a Black Soprano Family label compilation where Benny will introduce additional members to the BSF roster.
The Griselda collective (Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn, and Conway The Machine) is a unified family movement built on authenticity. It’s cultural, it’s raw and it’s viral, making Griselda’s ascension, both collectively and individually; palpable. From their inauspicious Buffalo roots, to signing with Eminem and Shady Records, in a non-plussed industry which advances style over substance, the Griselda juggernaut has created a real and sustaining moment. With the crews amazing run of both commercial success and critical acclaim there is no disputing that a real street ethos exists.
While Benny made the mainstream come to him by just being himself, that same mantra will be upheld by the talent he has already signed and will to his burgeoning BSF ecosystem.
