New rapper out of Dallas brings eccentric, crazy vibe to Hip Hop with mixtape ‘Drip’
DALLAS, TX – TyBenji is a conquering artist from the Deep South whose unique sound and style is set to propel his life into fame and superstardom. His new single “It Takes Time” is a testament to the hard work he’s put in to get to this point in his career. It also serves as a statement to the world that he’s a new artist on the scene that people should pay attention to. It’s an aggressive song that perfectly showcases his unique lyrical ability and one-of-a-kind delivery as a rapper.
“It’s a song that says it took a minute to get to where I’m at,” said the young artist from Dallas, Texas. “I have a strong foundation now and though there have been some rough times along the way, everything else from here is gonna be smoother. The biggest thing I’ve had to overcome is just getting my foot in the door and finding the courage to do what I want to do. Now that I’ve got that foot in the door and I have a stronghold and a strong foundation to build upon, I’m not looking back.”
TyBenji has been a budding artist for as long as he can remember. From the time growing up in Dallas as young Tyrik, he was always attracted to music and by age 10 was already writing his own raps and freestyling with older boys in his neighborhood. By the time he was in high school, he was actively pursuing music as a career and had already adopted the stage name TyBenji as a combination of his first name and the slang term “Benji,” which is a moniker for money. He says his early work was representative of some of his biggest musical influences including Lil Wayne, Easy E, Snoop Dogg, James Brown and Chris Brown, among others. But over the years, he has developed a sound and style that is all his own and which he knows will stand out in ways that will eventually make him a household name all over the U.S.
“My sound is different,” he said. “I just sound like me. I think it’s a sound that shows off my personality and my vibe. I have an eccentric, weird, crazy vibe. My mixtape ‘Drip’ really shows off that eccentricity and craziness. It’s a project that shows people the adversity I’ve faced in life and how I’ve had to climb from the bottom. It shares those things through music that some people would call weird or crazy. But it’s straight rap that comes from me and is perfect to show people who I am as a musician.”
In addition to “Drip,” TyBenji said he’s working on another mixtape that he hopes to drop sometime in the next six months. He’s also planning to release a music video for “It Takes Time” and is excited to see how many regions across the U.S it can make a splash.
