Benny The Butcher has flexed his financial muscle in unorthodox fashion, and claimed he paid an exorbitant amount of money so his dog could have his own driver’s license.
“Everybody say they getting money but my dog has a driver’s license,” the Griselda rapper said in a video that shows his pup in the driver’s seat. “You n-ggas ain’t getting money like me. N-gga, you know how much a driver’s license for a dog cost? I spent that. Fuck is y’all n-ggas talking about?”
Benny added in his caption: “I’m really getting to the bag.”

Benny The Butcher isn’t the only rapper to train his dog to perform amazing tricks. In 2020, Murda Mook told Drink Champs that the late DMX had trained his signature Pitbulls to drop ad-libs during a freestyle.
Speaking of DMX, Benny’s latest flex about his canine companion comes after he recently proclaimed his next project will be the best Def Jam record since X’s groundbreaking 1998 debut, It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot.
“Imma have the best Hip Hop @defjam album since DMX It’s Dark & Hell is Hot,” Benny wrote on Twitter at the end of October.
To clarify how bold his claim was, Spotify’s Head of Urban Music tweeted that if Benny’s statement has truth to it, it’d also surpass every Kanye West project from College Dropout to The Life of Pablo, JAY-Z’s Black Album and Blueprint, Jeezy’s The Recession and Thug Motivation 101, Pusha T’s Daytona and Scarface’s The Fix.
But this isn’t the first time the Griselda rhymer has stood firmly behind his music. Before dropping his most recent album Tana Talk 4, he said the project was an album of the year contender for 2022, challenging his critics to bet against him.
“While n-ggas be talking their shit, who wanna bet my shit go crazy when I drop Tana Talk 4,” Benny asked his fans in an Instagram video in January. “If anybody doubting me, who wanna bet? What we talking about? Who wanna bet me?”
He continued: “I know the same n-ggas who be talking that shit. What are we doing right now? Album of the year who wanna bet me right now. Album of the year for consideration before it even came out or even heard a single. I got 10 bands to anyones five, and I got 20 bands to anyones 10. Who wants to take that bet?”
