Lyricist and Hip-Hop icon Benny the Butcher received a global deal with Entertainment One for The Black Soprano Family imprint. Upon BSF’s inception, Benny promised a slew of groundbreaking new music from his roster and began with Gangsta Grillz X BSF Da Respected Sopranos, presented by Benny The Butcher himself and DJ Drama. The tape debuted in the Top 10 hits on all DSP’s, fulfilling his promise of continued greatness.
The label consists of Rick Hyde, Heem, LoveBoat Luciano, Jonesy, FlexxBabyy, Young World & the late and legendary DJ Shay. Founded on the “family-and-fan first” ideology, Benny has developed a band of artists bridging the gap between underground sounds and the mainstream.
Closing out Da Respected Sopranos was BSF’s new artist Heem. The artist recently added to the imprints discography an 11 track banger titled “Long Story Short.”
I feel like I’m at my best, in my prime right now, and Long Story Short is my gift from God. He put me here to a voice. It’s always a pleasure working beside my big bro Benny; he gave me all the game I need to be great.”– Heem
Amongst the 11 gems on the tape was a track titled “It Could Happen,” produced by Jansport J. The track features raw vocals, shadowy piano keys, and mind-bending bars relating directly to society’s twisted conditions. Heem teamed up with Benny and Rick Hyde to create a visual to seal the deal. The black & white visual featured clips from World shattering events like the elevator shooting of the Rap legend Tupac to influential Hip Hop figures such as Big Pun.
“Long Story Short” curated by DJ Shay and hosted by DJ Green Lantern, was a true testament to the origins of Hip-Hop. Featuring eye-opening lyricism and dark and heavy 808s Heem delivered magic with features from Benny The Butcher, Rick Hyde, and Boldy James.
It’s Heem’s turn now and he’s just as hungry as I was on my come up. That’s a feeling you can’t copy, you have to be in it. My boy has come a long way and he’s going to continue to separate himself and turn heads linking up with the legendary DJ Green Lantern with Long Story Short. Shay would have loved to see this. Big B$F!”– Benny The Butcher
With production from DJ Shay, Jansport J, and DJ Green Lantern, the project was executive produced by Benny The Butcher. Heem’s “Long Story Short” is available on and streaming platforms. Check out the visual available on YouTube now.
