BENNY THE BUTCHER
AT WILD ACRE LIVE
BENNY THE BUTCHER
Benny the Butcher carved out a lane for himself as one-third of Buffalo's Griselda crew and part of collective Black Soprano Family, the two primary outlets for his tense narratives about street life. Like frequent collaborators Westside Gunn and Conway he's inspired most by hardcore mid-'90s hip-hop from his home state, including Wu-Tang Clan and Mobb Deep, earning him the nickname "your favorite rapper's favorite rapper."
His newest album and second project of 2021, Pyrex Picasso, was released in August with 7 tracks. Fun Fact: album producer Rare Scrilla also made the cover art.
Euless, Texas native Melvin Gully has played everywhere from New York to LA to Thailand and in iconic venues such as LA’s Viper Room, House of Blues, and The Troubadour. Gully has rocked alongside legendary artists like Royce the 5’9”, KRS-1, Bone Thugs and Harmony , Chino XL, Immortal Technique, Paul Wall, and more. His current projects include Paul Wall and Crooked I.
Fort Worth hip-hop artist Lou CharLe$ delivers lyric-driven realistic hip hop with quality production and hard-hitting beats. Along with having gigged at MASS on the Near Southside, Charle$ has played everywhere from Virginia to Portland and has shared stages with Chamillionaire, Joyner Lucas, Joe Budden, G-Eazy, and more.
WILD ACRE LIVE
Directly off I-30 and minutes from Downtown Fort Worth, Wild Acre Live’s main outdoor stage is outfitted with a state of the art audio/visual system and lives at the far end of a small industrial complex. The stage is managed and operated by Fortress Presents, the people behind Fortress Festival.
Good food & drink is a Wild Acre Live staple. Our neighbors keep us going all night with an assortment of craft beer, award winning spirits made from Texas rainwater, and a celebrity chef behind the kitchen of Wild Acre Brewery.
