The first collaboration between Drake and Benny The Butcher is something fans have been anxiously awaiting since both artists teased the song in 2019. While Drake has remained tight-lipped regarding the track, Benny has been giving fans bits of information regarding the highly-anticipated joint effort.
During a visit to the Big Facts Podcast, the Griselda rapper gave another update on the song, revealing once again it’s a matter of timing and waiting for the right moment to drop the record.
“It’s like this, it’s like, levels, you know what I’m saying,” Benny said. ”I wanna — shit, it’s a record from Drake. I want it to work out. It’s a build-up thing. It’s not just about getting it and throwing it up, and it’s about timing. That’s muthacking Drake, Aubrey Graham. So, even if you got a record with that n-gga, you can’t just throw it out. You gotta get ready when he ready, too. It’s all that type of shit so, you know what I mean, it’s just whenever.”

Benny also praised Drake for reaching out and wanting to work with him.
“How we were saying about the followers and all that a few minutes ago, I’m appreciative of n-ggas like that who just not reaching out to n-ggas who just got — ’cause he could work with anybody,” he said. “I’m appreciative of that. To be honest with you, even if them shits never came out, the conversations that we had, I know that he a guy who respects my flow and I respect his and what he’s done in the game, so it’s about that. But I can’t wait for this muthafucking record.”
Benny also confirmed they got busy on the mic. When asked if the song was a bars record, Benny replied Drake was “talking his shit like he always do.”
The proud Buffalo native is expected to drop Plugs I Met 2 on Friday (March 19), which serves as the follow-up to the 2019 original. Guest features include Jim Jones, the late Chinx, French Montana and 2 Chainz.
