Monroe County’s Chase Benjamins directs “AwayFromTheCity” at the haters and it’s a lethal dose. The upbeat and energetic track is produced by 5 Star Beatz and Chase uses a rapid fire flow to get the target on those who doubt him. This is the first release from his upcoming Suburbia project that’s dropping soon.
When listening to the lyrics I noticed a difference in how Chase Benjamins shoots his rhymes. I liked the way he can make the listener feel what he is feeling, and the song puts you into the mood of the music. Not just the musical content does this, but what Chase Benjamins is saying goes along with the music and the effects.
It is hard to tell if Chase Benjamins wrote his verses and then 5 Star Beatz matched the track to that or if 5 Star Beatz made the track and then Chase Benjamins wrote his verses. That just shows that Benjamins and the beat are totally in tune with each other. Man this dude never fails to keep this track on fire all the way through. It’s truly banging in the system from verse one.
Chase Benjamins’ delivery is probably one of the most unique in all of music today and his production is immaculate. It’s almost like the words are spilling out of his mouth. I like conscious hip hop and political hip, but there’s no substitution for good party music, heavy lifting music, just plain hype music from the street. At that’s what Benjamins delivers here.
Benjamins effortlessly spits a wicked flow here to contrast those who doubt him. He’s dropping lyrical bombs as he moves through slow, fast, mellow, raw and rugged rhymes. The lyrics are calculated and vicious, and meant to take no prisoners. “AwayFromTheCity” shows how much Chase Benjamins’ has grown, as an artist, since his previous projects. Together with “It’s Nothin’”, this marks another giant leap ahead in the game.
