Benny The Butcher shares an update on the long-awaited ‘Tana Talk 4’
Benny The Butcher lives within a luxurious pocket of hip-hop. From linking with frequent collaborators in Griselda to artists like Freddie Gibbs and Rick Ross, Benny now seems to be in a league of his own.
Riding the success of 2020’s Burden of Proof and the anthemic The Plugs I Met 2, Benny took to social media to provide an update on his release itinerary for the year — teasing the fourth installment of his classic mixtape series Tana Talk.

“I just want n***as to know that lately, this is — I routinely leave the studio at this time. I’m on my bullshit,” he said in the clip. “I got shit for you n***as. Talk Talk 4 on the way.”Benny The Butcher via IG
This news comes off the back of Benny’s 2021 tour announcement, which will presumably feature music from Plugs 2, Burden of Proof and Tana Talk 4.
Commercially undermined, but respected beyond belief, Benny is lyrically gifted — rapping brutally honest bars with the voice of a poet. His past is riddled with stints in prison due to drug-dealing in his youth, however, he perfectly channels his thoughts and struggles in his songwriting. Benny’s storytelling ability is unmatched — being able to fully immerse the listener into the world he constantly resides in.
Recently releasing the sequel to the critically-acclaimed The Plugs I Met with Fraud in March, Benny and BSF member 38 Spesh dropped the 10-track mixtape Trust the Sopranos May 21. He and Fraud also put out “Sink” a few weeks after Plug 2‘s release.
His discography spans over the course of nearly 10 years, as his magnum opus Tana Talk 3 is universally loved by both fans and critics alike. His second official studio album Burden of Proof (released in Oct. 2020), was entirely produced by producer-rapper Hit-Boy — earning Benny higher praise and more mainstream attention in the process.
