Along with his long time friend, David Mays, Benzino is known for being a principle of the hip hop magazine The Source, which was launched in 1988 as a single sheet newsletter out of Mays’s Harvard University dorm room; and of Hip Hop Weekly.

Benzino was a founding member of rap group Made Men before finally becoming a solo artist. He currently appears on the reality television show, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

Benzino is known for being involved, since 2002, in a widely publicized feud with rapper Eminem as Benzino called him “2003 Vanilla Ice”. Since then the pair have been creating diss tracks about each other, including Benzino’s “Pull Your Skirt Up” and “Die Another Day”, and Eminem’s “The Sauce” and “Nail in the Coffin.” As a continuation of this animosity between the two, Benzino released a diss mixtape Benzino Presents: Die Another Day: Flawless Victory, disparaging Eminem and his record label Shady Records.
