Rapper Benzino is experiencing a musical second life since his casting to Vh1’s gloriously ratchet reality TV show, Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta.
Now rhyming under the moniker Zino Grigio, the Boston rapper has been in the stu with one of his TV co-stars—legendary Hitmen producer Stevie J—brewing tracks for his upcoming Crushed Ice mixtape. On their latest collaboration “Undone,” premiering here on VIBE.com, Benzino addresses the ladies.
“Myself and my production team Hangmen 3 that I’ve been producing for well over 25 years with, we basically took a Duran Duran sample and flipped it,” Zino says of “Undone.” “Me and Stevie been making a whole bunch of music together. Stevie has been doing his thing as a solo artist but we still have a lot of collaborations.”
