NYC-based producer Benamin is looking to teach you a thing or two with his debut release Beats and Thangs. After years of making music he struck up the nerve and determination to work up this extra special beat tape, and I've got to tell you that it's something that you don't want to miss. With a bit of help from his talented friends like Fresh Daily, Black Spade, Wynter Gordon and GRAMMY Award-winner Om'Mas Keith, Benamin digs deep into a funky sound that is reminiscent to that of OutKast, J*DaVeY and Georgia Anne Muldrow. Holding standout records like "The Weasel," "Do It Now" and "I Like It [Uptown Anthem]," which samples DeBarge's 1982 hit single, Beats and Thangs brings the heat without question. And if the all-star guest list and backstory haven't won you over just yet, Benamin has made his debut offering available to all listeners and spectators for free.
