Rick Hyde announces Black Soprano Family debut project 'Plates 2' with new "Hustlers Prayer" video.
Benny The Butcher's new global deal with Entertainment One (eOne) for his Black Soprano Family (BSF) imprint is already paying dividends. The imprints first official releases, 'Benny The Butcher & DJ Drama Presents: Gangsta Grillz X BSF Da Respected Sopranos', and Heem's 'Long Story Short' have both debuted in the top 10 on major DSP's.
Today, Benny's consigliere, Rick Hyde, announced his debut BSF project 'Plates 2', with a new single and video for "Hustlers Prayer". Rick has been predominantly featured on all BSF projects, and more recently appeared on Benny & 38 Spesh's 'Trust The Sopranos' compilation, Benny's 'The Plugs I Met 2' ("Survivors Remorse"), and Rick was also featured on Benny's most recent single, "Pyrex Picasso", which also features Conway The Machine.

Rick Hyde's 'Plates 2' will be released on 8.20.2021 by eOne and features appearances from Benny The Butcher, BSF, Westside Gunn, A$AP Ferg, G Herbo, Meyhem Lauren, Skyzoo, Jay Worthy, & Killa Kyleon and production from The Alchemist, Harry Fraud, Daringer, and of course; DJ Shay.
The release date for Rick Hyde's 'Plates 2' project was chosen to honor the one-year anniversary of DJ Shay's passing (8.20.2020). Shay, as he was too many, was like a father figure to Rick. DJ Shay was only 48-years old when he passed away, but his mark on Buffalo's music scene will be talked about for generations to come. "Shay cultivated the Buffalo sound back in the 90's" Rick Hyde commented. "He was actually one of the first artists to actually have a record deal outside of Rick James. Releasing my debut BSF project on the anniversary of his passing is both a tribute, and a thank you to Shay."
