Jarren Benton - Lean
From its inception, rap was viewed by many of its most prominent representatives as a medium for education as well as entertainment. While I doubt Jarren Benton‘s latest feature (the final song release off his latest mixtape) was what they had in mind, impressionable young listeners will come away from the record having learned something new—namely, how to mix up a styrofoam cup of Lean. Over project collaborators SMKA‘s street-ready production, the freestyle series alum and new Funk Volume signee expresses his affinity for that purple drank. For more, check out Benton’s SMKA/Roc N Mayne-produced Freebasin With Kevin Bacon LP, which was release on June 28.
