If you weren't a fan of Benny prior, Tana Talk 4 likely won't win you over. But if you were, the latest fuel for Griselda's hot streak will keep your Caddy bumping until the next blast outta Buffalo.

Tana Talk 4 is a great refinement of Benny's style.

AllMusic
Benny's storytelling lyrics are hardened and aggressive as ever, but he balances out his tales of street dominance and underworld dealings with moments of honest self-reflection.

While TT4 may not break down walls, the album fits snugly into the Griselda Music Universe and makes it more challenging than ever to deny Benny The Butcher of his roses.

This is probably the best produced rap album of 2022 so far. Both Alchemist and Daringer do a very good job on the beats, as Benny’s production on here sounds as good as it ever did. Benny also sounds great on here. His lyricism, delivery, and ... read more

A nearly flawless follow-up to the immensely satisfying "Burden of Proof" may very well surpass its predecessor's already immaculate quality. Plugs 2 blew me away as well but this feels more like the classic studio album Benny needed to make at this pivitol moment of his career, to prove to his fans that he's as sharp as ever, you can't prefer 'old benny' bc he hasn't lost a step. He also proves his legend-status to any critics and any latecomers, who had to have been sleeping harder ... read more

This is a great album, nothing too special. My favorite songs are Johnny P's Caddy, 10 More Commandments, and Thowy's Revenge.
