Benny The Butcher is promoting his new album but already has plans for future collaborations, and he’s aiming for the stars.

“I definitely sent him s ###s,” Benny said. “Like, ‘Yo, what do you think? That’s new s###, yo.'” When Charlamagne Tha God asked if Jay “still had anything,” Benny said that he was still waiting.
“No, he didn’t. He did not do it. He hasn’t understood anything yet,” he said. “Hov don’t think about rap, I’ll be honest with you. And when he does, it’s like a “eureka!” moment. He’s just thinking about it then, it’s not like he’s got his brain on it, but I’m dying to have – it’s like one of my – my s ### is …I need a Hov verse and I need me that Roc-a-Fella chain.
“I need my S###!”
However, Benny is determined to do whatever it takes to get that ice cream. “I’m auditioning for this Roc-a-Fella channel,” Benny insisted. “I need my s###.” Although he admitted it was inappropriate to ask, he’s an “east buffalo nigga.” Benny said playfully, “I’m throwing out hints!”

The “Plugs I Met” rapper also opened up about his record with Drake. The song has been discussed online for a while, but Benny revealed that he actually has two songs featuring the 6 God.
“I don’t cling to it,” Benny replied. “You know how it goes. There’s so much yellow tape to get these records out. he added, “If it was up to me that s### would have come out.”
However, he said he was happy to wait for the right moment and admitted his pride in working with the Toronto rapper. “I’m an east side Buffalo n ####,” he said. “Just the fact that a guy like that up there wants to join me. Respect from my peers is really the reason I’m in this s###. It’s a really big trophy.
Charlamagne told rapper Griselda he heard the track and revealed, “Drake speaks badly on this record.” He also alluded to the type of bag Drake gets into in the song. “It’s not a Drake record with Benny,” he said. “It’s a Benny record with Drake.
Benny also mentioned Drake’s Griselda scream in his 2019 Rap Radar interview and explained that’s how the collaboration started. He said they had two unreleased songs.
Benny contacted Drake after the interview. “He was like yeah let’s do something, and he sent me a song, sent me some joints actually.”
