The Benzino Project is the debut solo album by Boston, Massachusetts rapper Benzino, released October 30, 2001 on Motown Records. The album features guest performances from Puff Daddy, Scarface, Snoop Dogg, Black Rob, and Raekwon. It sold 75,000 copies in its first week, leading Motown to drop the rapper from their label due to the lackluster sales.[citation needed]

Notes[edit]

  • In "No Parts Of Us", Bobby Brown actually raps his verse, rather than sing like he does traditionally.
  • Benzino doesn't appear in "Ghetto Child", it's actually a duet between Bobby Brown & Made Men member Mr. Gzus. However, the track is produced by Hangmen 3, which Benzino is a member of.
