Jarren Benton ft. Hemi - Razor Blades and Steak Knives

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Jarren Benton
  • Track: Razor Blades and Steak Knives
  • Producer: Kato [for SMKA]
  • Album: My Grandmas Basement

Back in January, we heard Jarren Benton celebrate his addition to the Funk Volume stable with FV2013, an action-packed ensemble cut off the San Fernando Valley imprint's Knock Madness compilation. Today, the ATL repper and perennial Booth fave returns to our pages with his first solo single via his new label home. Razor Blades and Steak Knives finds Benton very much in his element, delivering aggressive, cartoonishly unhinged verses over an ominous beat by SMKA's Kato. Amid all the carnage, he finds time to offer a rejoinder to hand-wringing critics of his lyrical content: “Suck a d**k, suck a d**k, suck a d**k and by the way: suck a d**k.” Guest singer Hemi ties the record together with some appropriately diabolical chorus vocals. After this off-the-wall lead effort, I can only imagine the madness that awaits on Benton's forthcoming full-length. My Grandmas Basement currently lacks a drop date, but we'll keep you supplied with release details and fresh cuts as they emerge.
