Benny The Butcher Leans on The Alchemist & Daringer on ‘Tana Talk 4’

Benny The Butcher releases his first project of 2022, Tana Talk 4, with appearances from J. Cole, Diddy and more.

Four years after his third Tana Talk installment, Benny The Butcher is back with Tana Talk 4. The album comes just a month after “Johnny P’s Caddy” his surprise collaboration with J. Cole. The single earned Benny his first spot on the Billboard Hot 100, according to HipHopDX.

Like Tana Talk 3, The Alchemist and Daringer return with production on Benny’s latest project, along with spots from Beat Butcha. On “Back 2x” Benny shouts out his longtime producer saying, “I know what ya’ll want, you want me back on that Daringer sh*t.”

Tana Talk 4 also features Diddy, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, Boldy James, Stove God Cooks and 38 Spesh.

“With Tana Talk 4 I have a chip on my shoulder.  No one thinks I can recreate that energy.  I’m not trying to create the same energy, but TT3 was who I was then, what I was going through.  The things you hear me talking about on Tana Talk 4, is me now and who I’ve become” Benny said in a press statement.  “It’s special to me because I get to talk about things that I would never talk about on any other project. Tana Talk is the series where you get me, my deepest, darkest feelings.  I’m sure people are going to be surprised at the things I’m saying on TT4, but they are also going to get an inside look at things.”

Dispelling rumors of tension with his Griselda brothers in a 2021 interview with Bootleg Kev, Benny last appeared on “John Woo Flick” from Conway The Machine’s new album God Don’t Make Mistakes.

While Benny’s first collaborative project with Freddie Gibbs has yet to be announced, fans can stream Tana Talk 4 below.
