SMS #41 | Benjiphonik – I Got Old


One of the most wholesomely charming and quirky faces in all of American hip hop strikes back with yet another really fun EP that honestly might just be his best work yet. As expected, assuming you’re familiar with his material, there’s an overall amusing buzz that remains consistent on a sonic degree, with the songs featuring great beats and solid instrumental work, plus a few select equipped with such catchy choruses.

Without a doubt, there’s plenty of creative humour to go around, as is the course with the artist, but it’s also quite endearing and self-reflective, and this is where the record shines best, as Benji gets honest and speaks truthfully from the heart, whether examining how life has changed as he ages each year, or pledging for better human decency fresh off all of us experiencing and enduring explicitly harsh global events
