Jarren Benton has an affinity for “PBR & Reefer,” and even if cheap beer and/or weed don’t sound particularly enticing, the song is easily appreciated without being under an influence. Over SKMA’s trunk rattling bass and hi-hats, Benton is ready to get the party started. Hell, I don’t even do drugs, but he makes me want to look for a blunt that I know I don’t have.
While Benton’s is a name I recognize, I’ve been sleeping on him until now. Fortunately, his new album My Grandmas Basement is available to stream below. Frankly, that title alone a little touching because one’s relationship with grandparents, or G-Unit as I affectionately refer to mine in my head, is unlike any other out there. Between his homage to his grandmother and her basement, plus his off the kilter, raging rhymes, make sure to buckle up for the ride.
