Benny The Butcher speaks on the timing of the Drake collaboration
Benny The Butcher and Drake have been teasing their combined effort since late 2019, and as fans anticipate for the record, Benny has been teasing the collab every now and then. In a recent interview with Big Facts Podcast, the Griselda rapper explains the delay of the joint. He confirms that it is complete and that it’ll arrive sometime in the future, with the timing factor in consideration.
“It’s hard, but it’s really not that hard,” Benny explains. “It’s like this, it’s like, levels, you know what I’m saying? I wanna—sh*t, it’s a record from Drake. I want it to work out…” One of the hosts brought up the word “maximize” and he agreed. “Exactly. It’s a build-up thing. It’s not just about getting it and throwing it up, and it’s about timing. That’s motherf*ckin’ Drake, Aubrey Graham. So, even if you got a record with that n*gga, you can’t just throw it out. You gotta get ready when he ready, too. It’s all that type of sh*t so, you know what I mean, it’s just whenever.”

“How we were saying about the followers and all that a few minutes ago, I’m appreciative of n*ggas like that who just not reaching out to n*ggas who just got—’cause he could work with anybody… I’m appreciative of that,” he continued. “To be honest with you, even if them sh*ts never came out, the conversations that we had…I know that he a guy who respects my flow and I respect his and what he’s done in the game, so it’s about that. But I can’t wait for this motherf*ckin record.”
