New Orleans rapper Juvenile said on his break out single entitled Ha : “That’s you in that big body Benz, ha…”! The rapper, who was renowned for his ostentatious lyrics, was also a member of the rap group The Hot Boys. If one considers how our guest FurnaceBenz came up with his name, one could not help being reminded of those lyrics referring to a luxury vehicle (possibly “hot” as in stolen), as a convergence of Juvenile’s style and associated frame of references.
In art there’s always the need to see beneath the surface. A person may give the impression of “living it up”, yet there is the unseen and hardly depicted long journey of the struggle, which encompasses having to sacrifice, doing thankless work, etc. At Lavatory Records we aim to give you the full insight through our guests. FurnaceBenz is an associate producer of the PurvGang and also delves into rapping. He recently collaborated with Blingager of the PurvGang on a track called Black Callin’ which is a single for an upcoming collabo project. We had Mr Benz’ in the building to tell us more about himself, his future plans and just outlook on his world around him.
On the song Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems the late Notorious BIG emphasises the victory of having the luxury to afford a rolex as he raps “Throw your rollies in the air, wave em side-to-side keep your hands high…” This is seen as a status upgrade for someone who’s made it from the bottom to the top. Rollie Mallorca, is one dude who is making sure that that while he represents the hood, he will stunt on em because he means what he says and says what he means! He’s a straight shooter who timeously gets to the point like a swiss watch!
Strange enough RCD Mallorca which is a segundo division football team in Spain, is a perfect description of his current plight. The pursuit of getting into La Liga (Spanish premier division) is a viable target as it is for Rollie to ball in the big league, all thanks to hooking up with Tre and TnT Corporation. We had a chat with Rollie regarding his background, his future plans and of course his new affiliation with TnT Corporation!
When TnT Productions decided to embark on converging a corporation strategy, it came with a full mantle of “takeover”! With the name now Tnt Corporation the focus is on an Africa growth strategy by maintaining what got them in this position in the first place – music production! As part of venturing into the continent, TnT Corporation has teamed up with up-and-comping Zambian producer Spinzo
The schoolboy discovered his penchant for music production quite early, by always persevering and looking to improve. Music after all involves lifelong learning and is always about monitoring one’s progress, to create art of the highest standard (or grade for that matter). We asked Spinzol about his musical come up, development of the Zambian music industry, his partnership with Tre and TnT Corporation among other things.
