Album Review: Everybody Can't Go by Benny the Butcher
Exceptionally Good, Based on 2 Critics
HipHopDX - 86 Based on rating 4.3/5
A posterchild of grassroots music -- a term rarely used for purveyors of bars and beats -- Benny The Butcher is a unicorn in that his ascension from the ground up has lasted nearly two decades. Still, the product he's been pushing with such tenacity all these years has not only remained fresh but has continued to add value to whichever outlet it's sold out of. At this point in time, the Buffalo native has over 40 bodies of work to his name that trace back to his debut mixtape in 2004.
Few go harder than Benny The Butcher. A one-man rap colossus, he built his career with a frenetic work rate, a succession of releases propelling him to hip-hop's top tier. A hectic 2021 was followed by a sole studio LP in 2022 - 'Tana Talk 4' - before news leaked that he had signed for Def Jam. His debut for the iconic label, 'EVERYBODY CAN'T GO' dials into his core values, a frenetic display of rap excellence that carries real weight.
