Benny Cassette - Raging Bull
I’ve been obsessed with Martin Scorcese lately, so last week I watched Raging Bull for the first time. All I can say is, damn. While the latest feature from G.O.O.D. Music singer/songwriter/producer Benny Cassette shares nothing beyond its title with the flick, it’s likely to elicit a similar reaction among hip-hop heads. Over a self-produced beat that’s both grimy and cinematic, the versatile artist delivers poetic verses packed with vivid imagery and ominous turns of phrase. An unknown director’s artistic visuals round out the package. Benny’s Apocalypse EP, the first of two forthcoming projects on the horizon, is slated to drop in late June. In the meantime, though fans can visit the artist’s official site for a free download of Raging Bull.
