One Man Army AKA One Be Lo...


Today IS gonna be a good day. Benny and Catch are gonna head over to Chop Suey tonight and not only see Blu and One Be Lo but Macklemore and The Physics as well...should make for some good entertainment. Benny first saw One Be Lo bout a year ago at The Showbox after is first album S.O.N.O.G.R.A.M. came out...it was some good listenin so he copped the album. This album was raw, but you could tell the dude has skills. Now it's a year later and One Be Lo got a new album out, The R.E.B.I.R.T.H., you know Benny had to cop that album as well...and Benny has to say he is a fan. The R.E.B.I.R.T.H. is a more polished album, lyrically sick and beats to match.


Yeah, but Benny, what ties does he have to NW hip hop, he's from Pontiac Michigan? Well, you mean besides atleast 4 tracks off The R.E.B.I.R.T.H produced by Seattle's own Jake One (Smash, and The G Gap), Vitamin D (Don't Sleep) and Bean One (War)...One Be Lo is "currently the only MC member of the World Famous Massive Monkee's who won the B-Boy World Championships, hosted by London in 2004". BANG...ask and you shall receive bitches. Actually it was just a coincidence that Benny found when he started listenin...don't go thinkin that Benny can connect anyone to NW hip hop like we was playin 7 Degrees of Kevin Bacon!

So if you don't wanna believe Benny, go check the dude out at his myspace or his label, Subterraneous Records, where you can get the albums as well. Also, here is another article that should tell you more. So, I guess you can say that Benny is "Feelin" One Be Lo...NO HOMO! Peace.
