Miami rapper Benisour (Pronounced “ben-i-SWAH”) has one of those voices that was just meant to be heard. He may not dazzle you with his wordplay or his wit, but his deep, casual-sounding baritone is extremely easy on the ears – imagine a Game/Jim Jones hybrid on valium. His new single, The Grain, is about falling in love with a stripper. Despite T-Pain’s and Mike Jones’s best efforts, it is apparently still a faux pas to do so. Guest Akon, who actually ends up with more time on the mic than Benisour, contributes a typical hook, and Konvict Music handles the production, laying down some quietly pulsating strings over laid-back percussion. The song oughtta get its share of late-night spins at your local strip club. While no announcements have been made regarding the release of his debut album, Benisour is rumored to be working on one right now.
