Benny The Butcher says that he's moving away from boom baps beats with his upcoming album, Everybody Can’t Go. He explained the direction of his new music during a series of posts on Twitter, Sunday. Many of Benny's fans weren't happy with the news.

"NO…my album won’t be loaded up with boom bap beats… I did that already… the sound watered down too much y’all can have that shit," he wrote in one post. He added: "I’m talkin all this shit but the beats that are boom bap are OD boom bap. I did everything on this album." Fans quickly became worried about what to expect from the highly-anticipated project.

When one fan theorized the decision was made at the behest of Def Jam, Benny fired back: "Lol I swear y’all don’t kno NOTHIN bout the record business…On Machine Gun Black no label executive EVER spoke to me bout makin hits switchin beats EVER. this a narrative y’all like but nah." He added in another post: "Who’s forcing what ? 5 to 50 & 3:30 both Al & Daringer produced records plus Thowy’s Revenge….not boom bap and some of my biggest solo joints…y’all twitter goons (lol) tryna draw that narrative that I’m forcing it but I do it with ease and BEEN givin y’all trap records right under yall."

Benny previously revealed that he's been working with Hit-Boy on the production of the project. It will be the second time that the two have teamed up on a full project, following 2020's Burden Of Proof.
