Dark Light

I wasn’t around when Wu-Tang was popping off in the ’90s, but I can imagine that the Griselda movement is similar in energy.

With Westside, Conway and Benny’s family ties and the way they effortlessly jump on each other’s track, I could imagine this was what it was like when every Wu solo album felt like an extension of the Wu-Tang catalogue.

Over the past few years, Benny has consistently been in the discussions for best rapper alive, it’s between him and Freddie Gibbs at the moment, and it’s thanks to his significant output and incredible feature appearances.

So let’s get into it, here are the top 15 Benny the Butcher guest verses.

Feds at my front door, try to leave the gang plugs and one more

Like did he give us what I'm planned, I guess I'm filling up the van, uh
Bring it back in bales but distribute it in grams
Conversations in the cell, where most criminals advance
Let's backtrack, had my first daughter with my first wife
Bought my first quarter, caught my first stripe

He got picked up, then he bitched up, like he was 'bout to serve life
I turn dope to dollars, how you explain that?
Straight facts, blood on the money when it got paid back
You know them hustlers who sling packs
I'm tying with them same cats in case I gotta get my name back
All them nights I had to pray for this, they gon' pay for this
