The Griselda rapper floats over the flashy Hit-Boy production with plenty of hoops inuendos mixed into his rhymes.
“I guess I’ma be the shooter, you been warned/I’m in this bitch, poppin’ Ace like I’m Shawn/They play your shit, look at the gang and then we yawn/Why would he make that lame choice?/Man, these n-ggas couldn’t score if they had game point,” he raps.
Throught the video, Benny highlights a pair of high school hoops phenoms in the clip as they showcase their basketball skillsets.
Both players are juniors in the class of 2025, Hailee Swain won a gold medal with Team USA at the FIBA Women’s U16 Americas Championship basketball last year and is committed to play at Stanford.
Benny’s other young costar, Caleb Wilson, is a highly-touted five-star recruit on the men’s side with offers from Duke, Kentucky, USC, Georgia and more.
On Thursday night (January 11), ahead of the single’s arrival, the Butcher also posted a highlight reel spanning King James’ entire decorated basketball career which is soundtracked by his latest release.
“Bron” is slated to land on Benny’s upcoming Everybody Can’t Go album, which will serve as his Def Jam label debut LP. The project is set to arrive on January 26.
The album boasts 12 tracks and includes previously released singles “Big Dog” featuring Lil Wayne and the Stove God Cooks-assisted “One Foot In.”
During his November appearance on the Rap Radar Podcast, the Buffalo native detailed the meaning behind his forthcoming LP’s title.
As has become commonplace for the Butcher, Everybody Can’t Go has a tapestry of meanings, including loyalty and being “built different.”
“Everybody can’t go because they not cut like that,” he explained. “They not made like that. And you can’t dance to every song, you know what I’m saying? […] Everything is not for everybody. With new levels come new devils, and I want more. I want bigger for myself.”
He continued: “When you make that first cut — when you clearly see, ‘these people are not for me, they don’t need to be here’ — so the people who made that, who got past that cut, they think they’re safe. And what I mean by level up, you know, is my way of thinking. And of course, my way of making music.”
