Blvd Benny

Blvd Benny

Born in Flatbush, Brooklyn, Blvd Benny, learned his most valuable life lessons. Unfortunately, the death of his older brother, as well as some close friends, led Benny’s parents to move to a “better neighborhood.” This new neighborhood would be in the now infamous, South Jamaica, Queens. His new surroundings weren’t that different from his old neighborhood, but it did help Benny discover his musical talent. That same year his father bought him two turntables and a microphone to help make the move easier. This gift opened a virtual “Pandora’s Box.” All he wanted to do was mix music, listen to music, and most importantly make music. He started DJing and making mixtapes to sell at school. He quickly moved on to writing rhymes and found that this was what he wanted to do. In the early to mid ‘90s, Queens had a surge of artists such as: Nas, Lost Boyz, and Onyx make it big in the music industry. Benny saw this and realized they came from where he’s from and if they could do it, so could he. Benny went on to work on his craft by acting as hype man/opening act for Bad Boy recording artist, Craig Mack. He traveled nationally and internationally along side Craig. This opportunity allowed Benny to learn the important fundamentals of performing. In 2000, he was also selected as one of 5 finalists in the Coca Cola True Talent Search, held at the legendary Apollo Theater. He performed alongside the likes of, Jay Z, Beanie Siegel, Fat Man Scoop, and D.J. Clue. He was even featured in a Coca Cola commercial. In 2002, Benny inked a publishing deal to write songs for other artists. This gave him the opportunity to also learn about the business aspects of the music industry. In 2005, Benny participated in a song entitled, “Nino Esperanza.” This song was recorded for the worldwide organization, UNICEF with proceeds going to impoverished children in Ecuador, South America. This project was dear to him because his parents are from Ecuador. Its video was broadcast via DirecTV globally for a year. Fast forward to 2008 and Blvd Benny is still working to advance in the industry. He was recently featured on C-BO’s (G-Unit South) West Side Ryders III. He has also collaborated with G-Dep, Black Rob, Craig Mack, Papoose, Gerardo (of Rico Suave fame-Interscope Records) and Raul Cela (La Calle Records) on the reggaeton/latin scene. Benny also releases his own mixtapes entitled, “The Q-Mafi Project", “Juice", “The Formula” hosted by Hot 97's own DJ Absolut and most recently "Kidnap The A&R Vol 1". Benny has a completed album of original songs ready and waiting for the right deal. With songs entitled, “Rock It Out,” “Chain Swingin,” “Listen to my Demo,” and “Donkey Kong,” he will definitely take you on a journey of ups & downs and twists & turns. He will show and prove just how groomed and ready he is. So keep your eyes and ears open, cause he’s coming!
