Benny-Moss Rap Genius User Directory by Rap Genius Editors 1

I created my username by simply shortening my birth-name Benjamin Neil Mossholder. I’m Benny-Moss, I have been a member of Rap Genius for nearly two years. During my time here I have worked across a large number of different artists and genres. Most notably Casey Veggies, Tyler The Creator, Cunninlynguists, and Oddisee. I have also started posting my own shit that I’ve written on Poetry Genius. I’ve also recently started getting into Art Genius and Producer Genius as well.

I’m a huge stan of Kanye West and Kid Cudi, as well as stans of the Cunninlynguists, Oddisee, Shad, MF DOOM and Tonedeff to a lesser degree.

This is a .gif I made and was damn proud of.

I went from being that tootless genius:

To the lumberjack looking genius in under a year:

[Produced by E.L] Pervert by Tonedeff

E.L’s string-lead beat fits perfectly into the overall musical direction of Archetype, and Tonedeff’s further refinement of the production makes it even better. Tonedeff added basslines, intricate synth lines, and his trademark vocal harmonizing to the beat to give Pervert a feel that matched it’s lyrics perfectly.

Tonedeff’s breakdown of the production can be viewed here:

[Produced by Tonedeff] Politics by Tonedeff

Politics is an assault on the errors and flaws on the record industry, and the beat Tonedeff produced matches perfectly. Tonedeff brought in original drums, synth lines, and intricate choral work to create a hard-hitting beat for Tone’s lyrical assault.

Tonedeff’s breakdown of the production can be seen here:

[Produced by Tonedeff] Quotables by Tonedeff (Ft. PackFM, Rise, Session, Substantial, Supastition & Wordsworth)

The “posse-cut of Archetype, Tonedeff’s production on this track is primarily chopped up drum samples and is backed by running piano lines and record scratches.

Would you run to the roof, suicidal and blue
As if you were deciding your fate
Or better yet, now would you cut to the truth - you’d get as stupid as you could
All before you expired - no shame
Moment by Tonedeff

More parallels or what you do with your life’s limited time. Would you just accept that your life’s time is over and just end it yourself? Or would you live out your finals hours as wildly as you could?

[Produced by Elite] Issawn by Tonedeff

Issawn is a high-energy, hard hitting song, and the beat produced by Elite matches perfectly. Using lush flute and string samples, a hard hitting drum beat, and a full beat breakdown, Issawn’s production is a driving force behind it’s high energy.

Now, What would you do with your time if you knew
You were gonna die in one day?
Would you jump through the hoops of your life with a boost
Or would you deny and complain?
Moment by Tonedeff

What would you do if you learned your time on Earth was nearly over? Would you live the short remainder of your life to the fullest, or would you spend the rest wallowing in your life’s pity?

Everyone handles time different ways, and we all react differently when met with epiphanies or conflicts that consume our time.

Time’s running out
Hold onto this moment
Cause you’re never gonna get it back
Moment by Tonedeff

Tonedeff’s statement with this chorus is one that applies to everyone; life is short, and our time alive is limited. Our lives will be over before we even realize it. This echoes the overall message of the Demon EP, which is entailed by Tonedeff here:

Time is my worst enemy, and I’m constantly locked in an epic battle with it to achieve all the things I want to do in this life, before it gets to me first. This record is a testament to that.

[Produced by Kno] Loyal by Tonedeff

Kno, the stellar producer best known for his work with the Cunninlynguists, came through with another gem for the beat for Loyal, which took three revisions before the version he hear today was created.

Kno added an amazing sample of Leon Russell’s A Song For You, along with some atmospheric synth and bass lines to create this amazing beat.

Tonedeff’s and Kno’s breakdowns of the songs production can be viewed here:

[Produced by Versifier] Disappointed by Tonedeff

One of the few songs on Archetype not produced by Tonedeff, Versifier comes through with a driving beat with rolling drums, finesse string lines, and a soul-sample that would make Kanye proud.

Tonedeff’s insight into this song can be seen here:
