Benny Reid - Survival of the Fittest (Digital Single)


Immersing himself in Mobb Deep's legendary album The Infamous, NYC-based multi-instrumentalist Benny Reid reimagines the duo's dark, moody productions with live instrumentation free of samples and a meditative, searching focus. The first single announcing his album 'The Infamous Live' takes Mobb Deep's "Survival of the Fittest" and builds upon a swaggering, locked groove of bass and drums that drives forward Reid's looser, more playful saxophone - reaching for a more universal language that recasts the original's lyrical elements into hypnotic instrumental vignettes.
