Share:

Every month we’re highlighting the best up and coming artists in different genres. October’s gig guide is offering a great selection of rap artists that we couldn’t help but share…

Benny Mails

An intelligent and socially conscious artist who uses rap to question the world around him, challenge perceptions and convey his emotions, hip hop is in Benny Mails blood and his sophomore mixtape promises to make a bang, blending experimental sonics and pertinent impactful lyricism. He’s appeared in music campaigns for brands including Adidas and Champion, and received widespread support from key tastemakers such as i-D, Wonderland and more. With fans on the airwaves too in 1Xtra, Radio 1, 6Music and Beats 1, Benny is a firm one to watch this year.
