Benny The Butcher has certainly never lacked confidence and the Buffalo native has now crowned himself the “King of America” in an unreleased song he’s teased online.
Benny posted a snippet of the brash forthcoming track to his Instagram Story over the weekend as he traveled into Europe as part of his Thank God I Made It World Tour.
“King of America Buffalo n-gga/ Okay I said it/ I hear the rappers claiming the crown, if you want it you gotta come get it,” he raps through the car’s speakers while challenging his peers and moving through Dublin. “Walk in that bitch spending catch so there ain’t no need to run up my credit/ We the Sopranos bitch!”
The Butcher also gave fans a taste of another hard-hitting tune that he rapped along to in the back of his ride.
“There’s a story behind that name when they call me the Pyrex Man/ Like them two bricks from Dug and poppies from Kazahkstan/ I never sold meth but I know fent 1,000 yams/ You OD off this shit if you bag and don’t wash your hands,” he rhymes.

With Benny wrapping up his world tour, he can now fully focus on putting the finishing touches on his Def Jam Records debut, Everybody Can’t Go.
The 38-year-old revealed that the album will arrive on August 11 during an interview with DTLR Radio last month.
“Man, this new project, I’m not gon lie this is the first time I even announced this anywhere because this my first interview,” he said. “You know, August 11, Everybody Can’t Go. Everybody Can’t Go, that’s the first time I announced the date publicly because they just told me like three days ago.”
The project is fully-produced by Hit-Boy and it’s not Benny’s first time working with HipHopDX‘s 2022 Producer of the Year as they previously teamed up for Burden of Proof a few years back and have teased plenty of heat in the stash.
Burden Of Proof was released in October, 2020, and debuted at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 with about 19,000 equivalent album units sold in its first week.
The Buffalo resident signed to Def Jam in late 2021 with help from Snoop Dogg, who pushed for him to join the legendary label.
