For tonight’s show, I went down the depths of underground hip hop. I was able to capture an outstanding audience turnout for Benny The Butcher’s performance at the Brooklyn Bowl, located on the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Leading up to Benny’s appearance, DJ Zookeepper (yeah, that’s with two p’s) had the crowd turnt up with mad hits with each era of hip hop from Wu-Tang Clan, DMX, to Lil Durk. The last opener, Romey, an artist from the southside of Chicago, kept the crowd rocking with Benny The Butcher until his appearance (I showed up late, so I did not catch the other openers).
Finally, Benny the Butcher stepped out through the curtains with the building erupting in cheers as DJ Brasi (Benny's touring DJ) announced him to the stage. One of the best highlights of the night was when I happened to catch a guy in the front row with a license plate that read ‘GRSLDA’, so you already know the diehard fans came out to show love to one of the members of Griselda, now on Roc Nation. Benny opened his set with Crowns for Kings, a song from The Plugs I Met that features Black Thought. Then he followed up with Babs, a song from Tana Talk 3, which features Keisha Plum. And the last song I was able to capture Benny the Butcher perform from the pit was a song from Griselda project WWCD, Dr. Birds.
