Every once in a while, you will come across an artist that you respect for more than just their ability to make good music. I, myself, tend to favor those whom are transparent and have a real story to tell, and convey it in such a way that is both unique and captivating. Bene is one of those artists.
Throughout the years that I’ve known him, I could sense that he would one day become one of the proverbial roses that grew from the concrete. Although his music, to me, is still rough around the edges in certain areas, to say he is not constantly progressing would be a flat out lie. He is quickly rising from the rank of “rapper” to “artist.” And it is also important to note that he’s only 19 years old. In the aptly-titled “Through It All, I Rise”, we hear Bene reflect on past experiences and hardships, drop knowledge, and unapologetically express his views on a myriad of topics. Sonically, Bene offers a palette that is sure to accommodate the tastes of all hip-hop lovers. From upbeat, trunk-rattling trap songs to more slow paced, melodic introspective songs, TIAIR leaves no stone left unturned and caters to all.
It is with great honor that I also add we gave it the official Lucramotives stamp on the back cover to show our support and solidarity with Bene as he continues to pursue his dreams. Lastly, congratulations to my bro, Bene, on the release of his fondest body of work to date. Stay hungry and stay humble.
