Futuristic Ft. Irv Da Phenom, Jarren Benton & Shizzy VI – Let Me In The Game

When a rapper tries to plead his case for why he should be let into hip-hop and embraced, it often times doesn’t come with enough reasoning. For Futuristic, we’re seeing a different story. When “Let Me In The Game” comes on, consider this: the Tempe, AZ native toured with Dizzy Wright across the country, has been courted by a few labels and has a growing underground fan base (which we’ve seen is a strong force in itself).

Zany is Jarren Benton and his cooky videos. “Life In The Jungle” takes us through a short lifespan of Jarren robbing a liquor store, hilariously running from a cop who should’ve caught him blocks ago, going to jail and finally, untimely, passing away.
