Overview: Benny McFlyy was born Bert Raynard Johnson Jr. on August 5, 1986 in Hampton, Va. Benny was introduced to music early in life, but started experimenting with his own style and creativity in the third grade.
Benny’s list of early musical influences included Outkast, Goodie Mob, Michael Jackson, Prince, Jay-Z and Biggie. At 11, Benny was introduced to New Orleans based rap group, the Hot Boys. The young phenom Lil Wayne was then added to his top five list. The stylistic differences of his faves show why Benny’s style and delivery is all his own.
Knowing from an early age that he wanted to be an artist didn’t make life easier for Benny. His father battled drug addiction and was in and out his life while his mother struggled to put food on the table. Like many young men, feeling as if there is no other way, Benny turned to hustling. But he never turned away from his music. Using the trials of his life as motivation, he used music as his therapy and as his way out the streets.
Today, he is an artist on Vi
