Benjamin Epps

Going against the grain of today’s mainstream scene, Benjamin Epps revives the New York style with a pared-down rap style that draws on jazz and soul. Originally from Gabon, Benjamin started rapping when he was just ten years old. He built his style on clashes with his school mates and the ‘oldschool’ rap his brothers listened to. In 2020, he released his first EP, Le Futur, and the video for Kennedy en 2005, to critical and peer acclaim. Just a few months later, he released Fantôme avec chauffeur, on which he collaborated with producer Le chroniqueur sale. On stage at the Pelpass festival, he proved once again that he is not “a fashion phenomenon” but “a phenomenon”.
