|Beneficence, Brick City's veteran lyricist and Artifacts affiliate, has been one of the most active independent artists in the game since 1994. He released two highly sought after vinyl singles (''Hostile Life Style'' and ''Thin Line'') in the 90's and dropped three underrated albums with the help from El Da Sensei, DJ Kaos (Artifacts), Mr. Len (Company Flow), Kice of Course and others. Blessed with a confident intense flow, Beneficence has gained international respect working with many artists and producers worldwide.|
Hip-hop fiends worldwide would be hard pressed to find another album laced with the ingredients of a neo-classic album such as ''Sidewalk Science''. Beneficence's 4th full length boasts star-studded guest appearances from Diamond D (production on five tracks plus two vocal features), Roc Marciano, Prince Po (of Organized Konfusion), Lord Tariq, Rob-O (Pete Rock / INI), The Legion, DJ LKB, Kazi (Stones Throw / Madlib), El Da Sensei, Truth Enola, Presto, DJ Madsol-Desar, 12 Finger Dan, Frank Nitt (of Frank-N-Dank) and Wise Intelligent. Complete with a golden era feel and urban intelligence, ''Sidewalk Science'' is a sure return to the lost and appreciated boom bap sound of the 90's.
