I have to admit, I haven’t been impressed by Da Vinci…I’ve posted a video before, and I was specting big things, but from I heard so far I have mixed felling…I am liking this video though…the lyrics are strong & production is tight….not sure about the subject though, any tracks about hiphop & money, remind me of 50 cent and all that’s wrong about hiphop nowadays…need to listen to the album to make up my mind….


“My main inspiration behind “Ben” was to express the growth of my relationship with money from the moment I started hustling as a teen, until I became a man,” says DaVinci. “I wanted to show how far one goes to have material things for both right, and wrong reason.” While the video follows different stories of gambling, drugs, and prostitution, the message is all the same – with one’s back up against the wall, the quest for financial sustenance leads down many different paths. Such a message is made clear by lyrics such as, “You got your mind on your money / And you climbing in deep / Well just remember who the King of the Streets / Clockin’ cold hard cash / Running fast from police / Hey you running with the King of the Streets.” This track off of DaVinci’s debut ablum, The Day The Turf Stood Still
