Even in a rap game crowded with larger-than-life personalities, Jarren Benton‘s burning desire to be the center of attention sets him apart from the pack. Listeners hooked by the ATLien’s outrageous antics, however, will stay for his diabolically witty pen game. For a full display of the man’s mic skills (along with plenty of the aforementioned antics), look no further than Get a Load of Me, the latest leak off Benton and SMKA‘s forthcoming comp album. Backed by the 808 Experiment crew’s synth-string boardwork, the freestyle series alum delivers a litany of reasons he should probably be confined to a mental institution. After a seemingly impossible “Jarren’s here / manicure” couplet, the artist charges through two solid verses’ worth of belligerent trash-talk and cartoonish threats, liberally spiced with flat-out weirdness: “I just left the studio and I planted a bomb / Pass me the anal lube and hand me that gun.” Whatever you say, man. If you like what you’re hearing, more certifiably insane hip-hop goodness awaits on Huffing Glue With Hasselhoff, scheduled to hit iTunes for digital purchase Jan. 25.
