Benny The Butcher has been all over the place, doing promo for his album Burden Of Proof, which dropped today. 

During the Griselda rapper's stop on the LA Leakers, he spoke on why he stays away from social issues in his music. [Jump to five minutes.]

"You're never gonna hear Benny on no record speaking...just trying to clout chase just because of the Black Lives Matter movement going on," Benny The Butcher said. "I'm not never gon' make a Black Lives Matter song. Not saying that other rappers shouldn't. But that's just not how I speak to my people. I speak to my people in a different way

"A lot of times with all of this going on with the social media, everything is so visual," Benny added. "It's Fans want people to speak on certain things just because. But me, I'm a doer, so I don't feel comfortable, or I don't even like how a lot of these guys, they say Breonna Taylor name but they're not directly involved.  I feel like the public makes them believe that because the public is so hungry for a celebrity's attention.  If you really wanted to do something, it would be bigger than a Tweet ... You don't know how [Taylor's] family feels about people just saying that all the time. I wouldn't want to disrespect her family."

Do you think rappers who speak on social issues are chasing clout?
