When you hear the name Don Benjamin, you probably first think ‘oh, that uncomfortably good looking model.” Or maybe for some of you, Don has even been your Man Crush Monday. But soon enough, the name of the former America’s Next Top Model contestant will be heavily thrown around with the likes of some of your rapper and r&b faves.
HipHollywood recently caught up with Benjamin to talk abut his music career and his hopes of making a name for himself in the music industry. “I’ve been working on an EP as of recently,” he told us exclusively. “I have been dropping tracks to get fans familiar with the music because a lot of my fans don’t know me as an artist. They know me more for the modeling.”
The model-turned-rapper, who just landed a social media campaign for Calvin Klein, just dropped an incredibly catchy track with r&b stud, Eric Bellinger. “Eric is crazy talented. The record that I had him get on, I actually already had it ready and he heard it and wanted to get on it.”
Donald Benjamin, the rapper’s legal name, also dished to HipHollywood about being Instafamous and how it feels to always being someones Man Crush Monday. “I don’t get excited off of it, it doesn’t build my ego,” he said. “It’s still weird to me, it still throws me off.”
Humble … we like that.
