Benjamin is a Halifax-based MC mining a unique store of trap-influenced hip-hop. With production touches by legendary 902 chemist Jordan Metro, his tracks elicit a hazy blend of ambience and inflected with an energetic flow. Benjamin’s musical innovation is subtle, clever and contemporary; combining influences from his upbringing by a classically-trained mother and musician father, hints of golden-era contemplation and du-jour flourishes of A$AP-mentality and Travis Scott posturing. At the ripe age of 20, having spent the last two years rediscovering his artistic edges, Benjamin is poised to emerge as a primal force in East Coast hip-hop.
