Benny The Butcher‘s family has suffered a devastating loss after a massive fire tore through the Buffalo rapper’s home. Fortunately, his family was unharmed.
In a video posted to his social media, Benny can be seen wandering around his destroyed New York home, and said the whole ordeal went down while he was in Los Angeles.
“We good, I was in L.A. and India made it out that motherfucker ASAP,” Benny said in a video, referring to the mother of his daughter.

Benny The Butcher is unfortunately not the only rapper to experience a house fire this year. In September, Jedi Mind Trick’s own Jus Allah called on his fans to help support him and his mother via GoFundMe after his house burned down and said they’re currently living out of a hotel.
“I support my family through my music and my income has been limited despite the popularity of records I’ve been involved in,” he said in his GoFundMe bio.
“I’ve just finished recording an EP entitled Forces At Play that I will be releasing myself in October. I’ve also just begun a full length album entitled Fire & Blood that I intend to release very quickly. I’m launching this campaign to take pre-orders and as a way to get my mom and I out of our housing insecure situation.”
Benny The Butcher has been laying low these past few weeks as brewing tensions between him and Freddie Gibbs have begun to cool down. Earlier in October, Benny sat down for an interview with New Rory & Mal, and said he had no idea how relations with Gibbs got to this point.
“There’s nothing to talk about. He can co-exist, I don’t wanna talk,” Benny said. “I’m not talking to nobody – I don’t give a fuck if he a rapper – to nobody talk about me getting shot … you can co-exist it’s all good. That’s what I wanted.”
He concluded: “Ask that n-gga what Benny the Butcher did to him to have him be talking bout some shit on Twitter. He trying to sell some records.”
On the music side of things, Benny recently linked up with his fellow signees Rome Streetz and Armani Ceaser for their songs “Blow 4 Blow” and “Hunnit Dolla Hiccup,” and also just dropped off the visual to his Tana Talk 4 cut “Thowy’s Revenge” on October 6.
