Benny Universe on SoundBetter

Benny Universe is a rapper/singer and songwriter from Maryland.

Benny initially started writing poems as a child but was then inspired by Childish Gambino’s album ‘Camp’ at 13yo, then started to release music under the name ‘Kidd Prodigee’.

Benny is far from your typical rapper with his genre defying sound as he challenges the ‘masculine’ rap norms. All he wants is to make music that sounds good to him and covers topics that are unorthodox to Hip Hop like his love for video games, anime and the color pink. Benny wants to create a safe space for Hip Hop fans who wish to escape to a happier place without prejudice and pressure to conform. Besides Childish Gambino, Benny is also influenced by Tobi Lou and Bryce Vine which is evident by his soft smooth flow over relaxing instrumentals.

On June 2nd 2023 he released his first project "EveryDay Hero" and has several songs posted across numerous streaming sites, with over 30k streams on his song ‘Grown Ass Kid’. He has also received airplay by a local major radio station, WKYS 93.9, and has released three animated music videos to date. Benny may be an atypical rapper but that does not take away or overshadow his talent or the quality of his music.

    There hasn’t been a time or a track where Benny hasn’t impressed me by his melodies, lyrics, and performance. He leaves such a refreshing impression in his writing and a presence only he can bring to a record. I’ve had the chance to send ideas back and forth, collaborate, and talk with Benny and I can see how closely related his songwriting is with his personality signifying his authenticity and unique energy. Great artist. Great person!

    Honestly I’ve know Benny for a while now and even have a collaboration with him in the way whenever I can. He always manages to put forth full effort into everything he does. He manages to create a sound that is smooth and pleasant to the ears that you can just listen to whenever you’re just going about your day. From driving to work, cruising around to even just having a lazy Sunday, lol. 10/10 and would definitely recommend you listen or else you’re missing out !!!
