    This is it. And I'm sitting here racking my brain trying to come up with a comparison that I feel fits but I'm coming up blank

    True. With Boldy, I think we'd all agree that it's the production. He's definitely not as much of a draw away from the ALC production, lol. We all wanna hear those ALC beats. Pusha has always been able to make any kind of record. 23 years in, he's always been mad personable, funny, clever and can do things in a way that keeps him interesting, even when he's kinda redundant with his content. That's why he's been around so long.

    I think with Benny, he's kinda stood out during a time when newer MC's are well below where he is lyrically. He can rap so much doper than a lot of other people out right now, but he hasn't really had to step his shyt up to be a better artist. So I think when you drop so many projects, people can get bored with hearing the same thing over and over again. You don’t really see the growth from project to project. He's kinda been stuck in the same place, doing something we've all seen done to death in the past.

    Might be an unpopular take but I started finding Boldy way doper as an emcee. I like him even away from Alc beats. I really liked the projects he did with Sterling Toles and Real Bad Man. I legitimately think his rapping his a solid A- outside of only having one topic. I think he out-rhymed must if the guests on his new album. I don’t wanna derail the thread but I think if you listen to Bo Jackson and then backwards to even we recent as Tea in China that you’ll hear a big improvement.

    :hubie: But yeah thread can continue on

    Boldy's music feels much more human to me. He has a way of expressing pain alongside the drug and money talk that is powerful. It almost reminds me of Prodigy in the way it might just be one or two lines in an otherwise hard, grimey song. But he'll say some shyt that feels like it comes from the soul.

    A lot of his shyt is feel understated and low key, while Benny is trying to sound like the cooleest guy in the room.

    His rhymes feel less structured and predicitable as well.

    He just confirmed on Cosmic Kev that Tana Talk 4 is entirely produced by Alchemist and Daringer. No one else.

    The discussion on the last few pages is why I always do bewildered when people would say stuff like Benny is the best in Griselda or some would say he’s the only dope one.


    Hall and Nash were always the heart of the group imo. Benny is the least likely of the 3 to drop a complete dud, but he’s also not gonna have you stuck on a particular song or album like the other 2

    The Big Ghost Remix version is better than the OG version (outside of the Tokyo track, the OG version of that is fantastic).

    And see y’all when TT4 is released and everybody starts editing their comments in here.
