DREGO & BENO RELEASE S.W.W.T. (SORRY WE WAS TRAPPING) ALBUM FEAT. LIL YACHTY, TEE GRIZZLEY, SADA BAB
Drego & Beno —Detroit’s foremost rap duo— release their long-awaited project, S.W.W.T. (Sorry We Was Trapping), which is out today via EMPIRE. Drego & Beno have earned recognition for their vivid storytelling and ability to unify the Michigan rap scene which is evident in the project’s lead single, “Wit It,” featuring Detroit mainstays Tee Grizzley, Sada Baby, and the city’s honorary ambassador Lil Yachty. Another standout is “Vaxuum Sealed” which features 2022 XXL Freshman and fellow Michigan native BabyTron. In the lead up to the project’s release, Drego & Beno delivered visuals for “You Hip” and “Sorry We Was Trapping,” and today’s release is accompanied by the video for “Slatt Season 5.” It’s the latest installment in the “Slatt Season” series which are some of their most viewed videos. Watch the video for “Slatt Season 5” here and listen to the album here. Since first emerging on Detroit’s booming rap scene with their street anthems “Slatt Season” and “Recipe 2,” Drego & Beno found overnight success as some of the city’s most magnetic young stars. Pitchfork was quick to name them as “not only one of the best duos in Detroit, but in hip-hop in general,” as well as “Detroit’s most wicked storytellers.” They cemented this title with their debut mixtape, Sorry For the Get Off, which was released in 2019. The mixtape featured prominent Detroit artists Babyface Ray, BandGang and Damedot, and solidified their place at the forefront of Detroit’s new wave. As their videos racked up tens of millions of views, Drego & Beno capitalized on the success with the release of their debut album, Meet Us Outer Space, and the follow-up mixtape, Sorry for The Auto Tune, which both dropped later that same year. Drego’s collaboration with Sada Baby, “Bloxk Party,” which is approaching 100 million views, as well as features from Mozzy and Shoreline Mafia, propelled them even further. Complex praised Drego & Beno’s “veteran cool” and “immense versatility” when they named the duo on their list of 25 Rappers to Watch in 2020 and No Jumper brought them on for an extensive interview on their podcast. The new album marks a comeback of sorts for Drego & Beno who have been fairly quiet since that time. While Drego has continued releasing solo projects and was tapped by Big Sean for “Friday Night Cypher,” Beno has taken some time away from music. Now the two are returning in full force, bringing their unmistakable chemistry back to the motor city.
