“Grown Ass Kid”
Prod. by Elijah Ali
Benny Universe, formerly known as “Kidd Prodigee,” is a 20 year old Singer/Rapper and songwriter from Maryland. “I make music because it’s the only thing that can not be taken away from me, I lost my mother at the age of 10 and I never knew my father, all my life I have had everything taken away from me beyond my power and now I use my music as my power. I currently record all my songs on an iPad. What I want to do with my music is to inspire other people who are in a similar situation to me and let them know that things can change for the better.”
Grown Ass Kid is his first music release as Benny Universe. It has a jazz influenced soundtrack with smooth keys creating a delicate bed for his equally smooth vocals to lay over, a classic hiphop 808 carries the track rhythmically as Benny croons about the perils of growing up. I know he’s not the only one who hasn’t figured out how to “Adult” quite yet or maybe we just simply don’t want to…*sigh*
