Benny the Butcher and Hit-Boy Join Forces For the “Legend” Video

Benny the Butcher drops Burden of Proof this Friday.

Last week, Benny the Butcher dropped “Timeless,” the long-awaited collaboration with Lil Wayne and Big Sean. On Wednesday, he released the tracklist for his second studio album, Burden of Proof. The project will be produced in full by Hit-Boy. View the full tracklist below.Today, on the eve of its release, he released the video for “Legend.”

The project comes on the heels of his Gangsta Grillz mixtape with Black Soprano Family, Da Respected Sopranos. Benny recently spoke with Complex about the upcoming album.

“The feeling is going to be different,” he said. “My angle is different. It’s still me, but I discovered new things in the process of writing this album. I’m at a different level. I’m thinking a different way.”

Legendary engineer Young Guru mixed and mastered the project, which Benny says will be more autobiographical than previous releases. With at least one beat (“Timeless”) originally intended for Watch the Throne on the album, Benny says he’s following in the footsteps of Hit-Boy’s previous clients with this project.

“That’s why the album is called Burden of Proof,” he continued. “The person who has the burden of proof is trying to prove his assertion. I’m telling people, “I’m a legend now.” I’m trying to prove that with these albums, with the work that I’m putting in, with the legacy I’m leaving. That’s what the whole album is about.”
