Benjamin Hooks a.k.a. Benny No Good. I've been in this game for a minute. Bred in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, N.Y. home of hip hop's greatest' Notorious B.I.G., Jay Z and Big Daddy Kane. My style is influenced by all three as well as the Icons Run-DMC and most recently Ghostface Killah. The group I was in put out a single in 1998 titled "Lifestyles of the Poor with a Fortune", which made a little noise on the underground scene. One of my demo songs "Sparring Session" played for 17 straight weeks on Brooklyn College Radio. Feeling like i'm nearing the end of my career i've decided to put together a few bangers along with my longtime producer Ope a.k.a. O'Asiatic hoping to go out on a good note.
My single "10:11am" will be available on itunes 7/8/10. follow me on twitter @bhooks71.
