Check Jarren Benton‘s newest single from the forthcoming My Grandmas Basement release. Read more about that below.
The song, produced by SMKA Productions in-house producer Kato, is built around haunting organs and strings and heavy, off-kilter drums, a perfect fit for Jarren’s weaving, frenetic flow, as he takes shots at naysayers with lines like, “My wife say she’s sick of my behavior/ You fa**ots, stop comparing me to Tyler, The Creator/ I been on this shit since you was allowed in the theater… You were just a little bitch before you morphed into a hater.” About the track Benton says, “It’s just me getting my shit off as an MC, me taking some shots at the anti-Jarren Benton critics; it’s just me being completely ignorant and having fun with it.”
Accompanying today’s single, Jarren and Funk Volume are also unveiling the official album artwork for My Grandmas Basement. Taken with Jarren’s actual grandma, in Jarren’s actual grandma’s actual basement, the photo features Jarren, donning a raccoon hat, standing next to his sitting grandmother, a rifle laid across her lap. For Jarren, the inspiration for the artwork, and the album title, runs deep. “She’s always been supportive of my music, and showed me the true meaning of unconditional love,” says Jarren. “My grandma will give me some real inspirational advice – and she’ll also kill any ni**a that fucks with me the wrong way.”
