Meet One of Our Favorite Emerging Artists From Mexico, Lil Benjas
The rising artist is the latest Monday to Monday guest
Boyd: What is your favorite song of yours?
Lil Benjas: From my last album Dispersión, I think it was “Tarde.” That production overwhelmed me a lot because they brought in guitars and instruments that I wasn’t used to working with from a producing and rapping standpoint. I think how it worked out made it a new experience and I have strong feelings for that song right now.
Boyd: Can you talk to us about the album artwork? What is the meaning behind it?
Lil Benjas: With the artwork, we wanted to express a nucleus on my hand representing a person that is about to explode — sort of like when you are concentrating on something and it blows up. It represents concentrated energy—somebody who is on the verge of blowing up and getting big.
Boyd and Lil Benjas had a great conversation that you won’t want to miss. You can check out the full interview above.
