Consequence of Sound
His boasts are as strong as ever, and his flows are cold like the air in the Buffalo streets. You can hear the breath control that he honed on those streets when he raps.

Burden of Proof delivers on its promise of being a sharp contrast to the rest of Griselda’s 2020 deliveries.

Expertly thought through, the production matches rugged club elements to something a little deeper and more thoughtful, and it’s this balance that seems to serve the label so well right now.
Another week, another Griselda album. They are known for dropping lots of music lately and some would argue that they have been dipping in quality, however this is definitely not the case with this release. "Burden of Proof" is one of the best Benny The Butcher projects and one of the best from Griselda in general as well.
Benny The Butcher is probably my favorite out of the three Griselda frontmen since he acts as a great midpoint between the group - he's not as eccentric as ... read more
The production on this album is top notch, I love the samples used on most of the tracks. Where would I go in particular has a nice sample. The track sly green has a very diverse beat.

Griselda has been over-saturating the market lately. If the projects start to dip in quality, it could become an issue where people aren’t excited for a new Griselda release. But, if they’re as good as this or the new Conway album, they don’t have anything to worry about. Quality > quantity

I was excited for this record because I have loved Benny’s features lately and Hit-boy has been killing it on production this year. And they both continue their hot streak on ... read more
"Burden Of Proof" has the potential to be the most popular Griselda album of 2020. Nevertheless, Benny's follow-up to his underrated "Tana Talk 3" feels a little low-impact and mismatched.

Each member of Griselda has so much talent and potential to come outwith some of the most essential hip-hop releases of the next years. Whilst, Westside started the year with a bang as he released the most cohesive and vivid Griselda release, "Pray For Paris", Gunn has only ... read more

For a while now, Westside Gunn’s Pray for Prais was my favorite Griselda project, however, I think Benny the Butcher just surpassed that project with Burden of Proof. Before you listen to this lemme just say: If you’re going into this expecting Griselda’s typical grimy street and coke raps shit, you’re gonna be disappointed. There are still plenty of coke bars and a track like Sly Green shows that there are still a lot of grimy ... read more
