Have you ever heard of a 16-year-old rapper who spends his free time in a recording studio instead of finishing his homework? Meet Benning, a musical prodigy from the Punjabi community in Brampton who is prepared to enlighten us all. With his groundbreaking fusion of Punjabi Hip-hop and R&B, this young performer is melting microphones and making even seasoned musicians second-guess their life decisions.
Benning has made the decision to actually bhangra his way into the profession because to his obsessive passion for Punjabi music. When the majority of us were engaged arguing whether cereal should be poured before or after the milk, he began his musical journey. His trip serves as an anthem for the idea that age is only a number and that your SoundCloud follower count is the only metric that matters.
His most recent song, “50/50,” is not your typical high school anthem about adolescent problems. This isn’t a rap about math, acne, or the neighbor girl, either. Who says your goals have to wait until you’re old enough to hire a car? It’s a strong voice of empowerment and barrier-breaking.
Benning and his mixer engaged in a fascinating game of voice Jenga during the recording of “50/50,” resulting in a seamless blend that perfectly expresses the spirit of his music. The search for the perfect rhythm then began; picture Indiana Jones in a recording studio. What happened? A harmonious collection of rhythms that perfectly complement Benning’s own style.
