Benefit and Mr. Green dropped some visuals to their joint called “The Original”. This is dope boom bap HipHop and we’re feeling Benefit’s bars and flow on this. But the big story is this is the first time we get to hear Mr. Green spit a verse on a song. We were pleasantly surprised at how tight his bars were. Hopefully we’ll hear more songs featuring Mr Green.
“This video was shot when Benefit was visiting NYC for the first official Live from the Streets album release party. We didn’t really have a plan but we knew Ben was only here for a couple days so we got busy and shot as much as we could.
This video is special to me because it features some of the best moments in the Live from the Streets
show over the last couple years along with a couple glimpses into future episodes (like Sean Price and Odb).
It’s also special because it’s my first time rhyming on a real song. Shoutout to the legendary Benefit for hearing me rhyme and then convincing me to jump on a real song. If enough people ask me to I might put out more rhymes… we will see.”~Mr. Green
‘The Original’ feat. Benefit is featured on the first
