Benji Hype delivers at Noddy Virtue Birthday Bash

US-based dancehall artiste, Benji Hype, delivered a brilliant performance at the weekend during Noddy Virtue's Birthday Bash in Comma Pen, St Elizabeth.

"As Laden called out, 'weh mi artiste friend de?', and mi run out, the girls dem start scream as mi a deejay Google Bad Mind, and dem just a stare pon mi swag, the whole venue ah mash up. A four-corner forward me and Laden get, one of the biggest of the night. The girls dem love the ting, ah pure flavour when we roll out," Benji Hype said.

He has been making regular appearances at street dances in the Corporate Area. He made an appearance at the Mojito Mondays where the selectors played Man Dark and Google Bad Mind. At 'Uptown Mondays', the selectors also played Google Bad Mind a couple times.

"Right now, Google Bad Mind is a definite hit, the video shot and the streets ah work with it, and mi feel great. I am just going to continue to work hard and try to learn new things about the business. I am working with College Boys in Portmore, who did Stookie ,wid QQ, and I will be doing a song with Adrian Locke of LocktheCity Music Group. He is a great producer who I can learn a lot from," Benji Hype said.

In the meantime, Google Bad Mind continues to bomb the airwaves into submission. The single was released in October and took just a few weeks to dominate FM radio, getting regular spins on HITZ, ZIP and IRIE FM.

The song has also become a staple in the dance, generating a great buzz at street dances in Kingston and doing well in the streets of St Elizabeth and Manchester

Benji Hype has recorded a number of other singles such as Man Dark on the 'Hashtag rhythm' for 007 Records; Sting Christmas, featuring Mr Khool, for Whatage Music, and It's Time, featuring Ginjah, for BH Records.

He also has a new single with the Portmore-based College Boys Production, Mi No Care If Yu Gi It Weh, which was mixed and released at the weekend.

"Right now, mi ah go all out fi mek this happen. The people dem a show mi crazy love on Facebook and Twitter and that just encourage me to go harder," he said.

'Google Bad Mind is a definite hit, the video shot, and the streets ah work with it.'
