Griselda’s Benny The Butcher dropped off “Thanksgiving” on Friday. For this track, Benny lets a Harry Fraud instrumental turn his life into the rap version of Snowfall

“Let me take you back to that blue building back in the day/While trapping 2 for 15, plus that was my age,” Benny raps over the soulful sample. “From that little stage, 2 to 3 years I mastered my ways/We’d be the Jacksons of yay if they gave out plaques for the game.”

After taking listeners down memory lane, Benny paints a picture that’s similar to a limping Franklin Saint—a wounded kingpin who is still controlling the game despite the bullets.

“Want a meeting with BSF, then be a check writer/In therapy, learning to walk again/Fought ‘em in a robbery, they shot me/I’m back cocky in the jewelry that I bought again,” Benny spits. “They want me the post when I slide, to say I’m gangster/Trust me, it won’t make us the ‘gram/It’ll make us the papers.”

“Thanksgiving” is fans’ introduction to Benny’s highly anticipated project, The Plugs I Met 2 which will be released on March 19. The Plugs I Met 2 is produced exclusively by Harry Fraud with features from the late Chinx Drugs, Fat Joe, Jim Jones, and more.
