Jarren Benton has experienced a meteoric rise in the last year. The Funk Volume standout dropped “My Grandmas Basement,” hit the road with Tech N9ne on the Independent Grind Tour, and landed himself on the XXL Freshman cover as the people’s choice. Jarren’s quirky-sharp lyricism and enigmatic personality have garnered him a much-deserved buzz as he makes a return to Atlanta for his second consecutive A3C appearance. We caught up with Jarren on our Take 5 segment to discuss Funk Volume, his favorite beer, and how he plans to act on stage this year in ATL.
