Longtime Artifacts affiliate Beneficence is active as emcee since the early 90s and dropped multiple albums with the help of El Da Sensei, DJ Kaos (of Artifacts), Mr. Len (of Company Flow) and others. Now he’s back with a new album titled Concrete Soul on Ill Adrenaline Records.
The latest single “Cold Train” with Grap Luva and Rob-O (of I.N.I.) was a promising taste of the album that’s full of authentic golden era nostalgia drenched in cuts, samples, boom bap drums and sharp rhymes by Beneficence and the well-selected guests. The likes of Buckwild and A.G. (of D.I.T.C.), Masta Ace, Billy Danze (of M.O.P.), El Da Sensei, Gensu Dean and Presto assist him resulting in a balance of laid back joints and rough tracks with, in Beneficence’s own words, “a soul street element”.
