Welcome to BuzzMusic Benny Strong! Thank you for sharing your story with us! What would you like our readers and your fans to know about you and your music?
People need to know that I do not cut corners with my music, everything is rehearsed, I pay to work with the best engineers, at the best studio in Canada.
My beat selection is from a billboard charting producer. I most of all I need them to know I am not a quitter! I had substance abuse issues, I was obese and was arrested on federal drug charges.
Now I am clean, lean and living the dream!
What emotion did you specifically channel in while writing “A.M.B.I.T.I.O.N.”? In your artist perspective, what is this song about?
This track was special to me because it felt like my first “clever” writing and it was all truthful about the transition of dreams of dealing drugs to now rapping. I like how I had the verses parallel the two sides of the coin, dreams of a dealer and a rapper!
What is the impact you hope to leave on your listeners, Benny Strong?
I really don’t want to release an album I like going one track at a time. Having art for each track and enjoying the process. Picking the beat, writing, rehearsing, booking studio time, recording, artwork to the release! I have 12 mastered tracks ready and 6 to be mastered and 4 to be recorded so I Am Not Stopping!
What’s next for you?
I plan to release all my music and hope the Good People enjoy it!
