Favorite Tracks: Rainbows (Ft. Blanca & Tedashii), Overtime (Ft. Social Club), Love Signs (Ft. Ram1), & Stones
Benjah’s album Vanity Fare got chopped up and remixed; and what came out of that? Introducing Haze & Reflections.
The first song on the album is Rainbows which features Blanca from Group 1 Crew & Tedashii from Reach Records. This song is so uniquely good, lyrically and production wise. A catchy chorus with the amazing vocals of Blanca, and if we’re honest when does Tedashii not bring heat on any feature?
We been programmed to worship, worship, worship… but with the wrong Gods we flirt with
Benjah speaks about chasing rainbows and the unfulfillment it brings when we seek them. Rainbows can metaphorically be anything. Anything that we pursue instead of God such as money, fame, women. We all seek some type of rainbow hoping for a pot of gold at the end. This song depicts that lie, there is nothing from the rainbows that we seek.
Work vs. Overtime – Which one is better is the real question! Well I don’t think anyone can argue that Social Club always brings it. There is a reason “Social Club is the best”. As far as production, it is beyond the standard we have for CHH. When that beat drops at 0:19 seconds, you might just spazz out. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. This has to be one of my favorites from the album.
The Haze & Reflections brings a Electronic/Dubstep/Hip Hop feel all in one album. I believe this album raised the bar for production as well as opening the door for the Hip Hop genre to expand and do it differently. Benjah as an artist is unique to the game, with his vocals and catchy hooks. Did you know he even produces? Being able to portray the Gospel in a unique way is what CHH needs.
As an artists who has worked with today’s top Christian urban artists like Lecrae, Tedashii, Trip lee, Sho Baraka, Andy Mineo, Group 1 Crew, Json and more, Benjah should not be underestimated.
Through the Haze there is time for Reflection; Benjah recognizes the struggle as a believer but also the joy from knowing Christ. He definitely pushes anyone to be on their grind and work.
To end on a positive note, if you liked Benjah’s album Vanity Fare, Haze & Reflections made that album 10x better.
