Benny The Butcher sat down with KXNG Crooked on the rapper's Crook's Corner series and said Jay-Z told him not to be on the latest XXL Freshman cover.

“I was going to do it,” said Benny, who just inked a management deal with Jay's Roc Nation. “He told me not to do it … He made a big point. He let me know that when it’s [my] time, there ain’t gonna be no voting. I ain’t gonna have to share it ... I always wanted to be on that sh*t. I was like, ‘I told these people no. What is happening in my life?'”

Benny also said the 4:44 maker told a story about something that happened to him back in the day.

“He told me about a situation where somebody turned something down and showed him that it’s okay to be you and take the work that you’re comfortable with for your brand."

Do you think Benny made the right decision?
