The Come Up: Jarren Benton


On his breakout mixtape, Freebasing With Kevin Bacon:

“I’d say that’s the project that did it for me, and actually I think that it helped that it had that down south fucking 808 element to it. But I I tried to throw a different twist on it with the lyrics. Coming from that school of you know, OutKast, I wanted to still put the lyricism over those fucking beats You got that down south shit but it’s fucking beast behind the mix. “Skitzo” was the one from that in particular that got a lot of attention.”
