Benny The Butcher is doing his part in helping his Buffalo hometown move forward after a white supremacist gunman murdered 10 people at the local Tops Friendly Market grocery store in May.
Benny and his Black Soprano Family team linked with designers Kat & Nolan Cartwright for a limited-edition t-shirt drop with 100% of the profits going to the Buffalo Survivors Fund.
The shirts, which honor all 10 victims with their names, are available now, retail for $40, and only 200 of them were made.
To further emphasize the moment, he also released the new single “Welcome To the States,” a political rap record (that flips Kendrick Lamar’s “We Cry Together”) and details racism and even gives a subtle shoutout to Young Thug and Gunna’s ongoing legal drama.
The shooting dampened spirits nationwide … but particularly hit home for the Griselda rapper, who regularly shops there with his family, as it’s only a few minutes from his home.
Because of the incident, his middle-school-aged daughter has yet to return to school.
The accused suspect has since pled not guilty to the murders.
