Benny The Butcher and his Black Soprano Family (BSF) have announced their biggest compilation project to date, “Long Live DJ Shay,” which will be released on September 9.
After announcing the new album with the project’s smash lead single and video “Times Is Rough,” (produced by DJ Premier), Benny and BSF are back with “297 Parkside.” The new single and video features Stove God Cooks and is produced by Camoflauge Monk.
“’297 Parkside’ is our wave on steroids. An instant classic!” Benny The Butcher confidently asserts. “The track title represents Shay; it’s a Buffalo thing.”
“Long Live DJ Shay” is a celebration of the legacy and impact of DJ Shay (R.I.P.), not only for BSF and Griselda, but his lasting impact on the culture. The project is Benny’s Roc La Familia project, a warning shot for the streets that not only showcases himself and his label, but more importantly his burgeoning roster of talent; and those closely associated with him. It features appearances and production from Benny and his BSF brethren along with Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Boldy James, Stove God Cooks, Krayzie Bone, Armani Caesar, DJ Premier, The Alchemist, and Jansport J.
“’Long Live DJ Shay’! We put so much into this knowing he is watching down on us, and I know this is gonna wake everyone up,” Benny The Butcher affirms. “B$F is the biggest. I promise you we them ones. The album is top-notch; from production to the rhymes and it’s entirely mixed by the legendary Young Guru, so I know it’s gone pop out ya speakers the right way.”Benny the Butcher release “297 Parkside”
