The Come Up: Jarren Benton

My Grandma's Basement

On My Grandma’s Basement:

“I named it My Grandma’s Basement because that is where a lot of shit started from. And when I say that, I don’t necessarily mean hip-hop shit, but a lot of soul searching and life shit happened during the process of me losing my shit and having to go move back into my Grandma’s basement. I wanted to capture that and the reason that I wanted to is because a lot of other projects I was putting out was just crazy shit. A lot of crazy, in your face shit where nobody really got to know who Jarren is. This project has a mix. You got the music where if you want to turn up, you can turn up. If you want some introspective shit and want to get to know who I am and my struggle I display that too. Also, I display my background, my heart and where I come from and that’s just hardcore ass hip-hop. I got tracks with Vinnie Paz, R.A. the Rugged Man, Big Rube’s on there, the Funk Volume team and a couple of my homeboys as well. I feel it’s one of the dopest projects I’ve done, just because of the diversity in the project.”
