Thoughts: Much like with Conway, I was slightly worried that Benny’s solo project was going to be too much of the same stuff we’ve already heard over the last few years, but Benny stepped his game up and shows a lot of versatility on this album. For the second straight project, Benny scores incredibly high in average song rating and, honestly, some of the 3.5s could have been 4s. Every song on this album is good and there is no weak spot, plus have the songs are straight up flames. It’s kind of strange how much better the production is on this album compared to the recent Nas album since both projects were produced entirely by Hit-Boy. Not saying the beats Nas got are weak, but the production here is way more my flavor. This album cements Benny’s status as one of the best rappers in the game right now.

Verdict: 9/10 (Amazing)
