Benny the Butcher recently sat down for a lengthy interview with Joe Budden, during which he reflected on his 2022 song, “Johnny P’s Caddy." In the Tana Talk 4 track, Benny claimed to have brought "Validity" to Griselda. The two discussed the J. Cole-assisted track on Conversation Lovers Only.

“This what that line is really towards,” Benny began in the conversation. “It’s toward the fans. It’s when you coming up under a two-headed monster, or whoever is ahead of you, or whoever laid the path for you. For me, West and Conway, my family. A lot of people be be thinking like, ‘where do I fit in at?’ I dealt with that. That was something that I dealt with. People acting like I never brought nothing to the camp.”

Benny added that the idea that he doesn't bring anything to Griselda still permeates to this day. “They hated Burden Of Proof. When that dropped, that was Griselda’s biggest selling record at the time,” he continued. “Highest place on the chart at that time.” As for the full lyric, Benny rapped, “Come with that energy ’cause some shit gon’ always stick with me/They wanna know what I brought to Griselda, I say, 'Validity.'"
