Q: Give us some background info as to who you are.
I’m a connoisseur of life & knowledge. I’m a realist, a musician, emcee, producer, promoter and a lot more. I’m different things to different people…aren’t we all?
Q: What is the significance of your name?
I have always been called Tjuan (Twon) cuz my name’s Antjuan and I have been a benefactor for years now in different ways and situations. So once I got into music, Benafactor was just natural and like me. It’s 100% authentic and original. I’m the first Benafactor ever. I see emcees starting to come out with — Benefactor n benefactor and its dope to see how I have been spreading. Tjuan Benafactor
Q: Who is your target market?
My target market is everyone. All ages, races, sex, sexual preference etc. Now every song isn’t for every person. I create a wide range of music with all types of concepts. I’m just not one way all day every day in my life. So neither is my music, cuz it’s a direct reflection of my life and different times, events, etc. of me and my life so far.
Q: What is your USP? (Unique Selling Proposition) and what sets you apart from other artist?
Just rock wit a G. My music invokes emotion. Each song makes you feel different than the last but it’s always dope music. What sets me apart is I don’t follow trends. I create them, also my creativity and hustle. For better or worse I had been hustling since birth.

( 4UMF NEWS ) @RapHead Interview w/ @LayzieBTNH @FleshnBoneBTNH & Bone Thugs-N-Harmony:

S/O to RapHead member Tjuan Benefactor first and foremost. He made sure we were well taken care of while waiting to get up with the Legendary Bone Thugz. This concert was crazy! They had a live band by the name of the “BandAide Boyz” and they tore it DOWN!!

Bone comes on and rocks the whole building! This place was so jam packed that you can tell that their music def. had a lot of influence on the RAPHEADS throughout the country. These guys will always be able to book shows and make money due their strong following of dedicated and loyal BTNH fans.

If you get a chance check out the forum and you will see exactly what I mean.

Check it out:



RapHead member Tjuan Benafactor catches up with Bone Thugs after the show in Pittsburgh, PA!!! Bone showin’ luv to the Steel City and lettin’ you know how to stay up to date with all the latest Bone Thugs projects!!!

This was def. one of the classic RapHead nights! Up until 4am getting in with Bone Thugz! What was even more crazy is I guess someone out their camp left the bag in the trunk of one of the RapHead Employees and they had already left off to the next city. I ended up getting a phone call that the laptop is in this bag that is needed for Bone to do their next show. Being that I’m such a RAPHEAD, I paid for the overnight delivery out of my own pocket and made sure I got it back to them in time for their next show. The guy in charge of the watching the bag said that my check is in the mail. That must be some heavy check because I’m still waiting on it hahah.

This section...... - Imperial Hustle: The Resource Magazine


featuring The Game, Daz Dillinger, Jadakiss, Trina, Joe Budden, Styles P, Project Pat, Killah Priest and hosted by Onyx co-founder Sonny Seeza


Swiss indie label Empire Music presents the Billboard Blackmarket Mixtape, a 40-song release featuring mainstays like The Game, Daz Dillinger, Killah Priest, Trina, Styles P, Jadakiss, Joe Budden and Project Pat with underground names like Thirstin Howl III, Chino XL, Sha Stimuli and Doitall Dupree of multi-platinum group Lords of the Underground. Blackmarket is hosted by Sonny Seeza of the multi-platinum Queens, NY rap group Onyx, preparing for his solo album Bridges Volume 1, dropping fall 2012 on Empire. Producers on Blackmarket include Aftermath in-house producer Focus, Switzerland’s DJ Tray, and DJ Idem, best known for his work with East New York’s Jeru Tha Damaja.

The Game brings a taste of Compton to “Chalked Up” alongside Dirty Jersey trio Premavara, M-Eighty, Eagle and Indianapolis spitter Jaeclyn Bayne. Daz Dillinger drops some Dogg Pound swagger on the G-Funk remix of “City Life” with E.D.I. of The Outlawz, Syndrome and Spanish rapper Khavel-X. Jadakiss of The Lox lends his signature menace to the High Notes-produced “Swag On Pluto” featuring Opium and Brooklyn’s St. Laz. Trina twerks all over “Iced Out Jump Ropes” featuring Shane Dean, while Joe Budden blesses the Kokayn-produced “Is This Thing On” alongside Rush and Thadd Williams. Playing a major role in this project is Joey Cutless, the L.A.-based producer whose resume covers MTV Unplugged, VH1’s Behind The Music, Oprah Winfrey and countless artists in between.

Empire Music is the Swiss record label led by CEO Matthieu “MDB” Siegenthaler whose team is responsible for releases with KRS-ONE, Delinquent Habits, JC of Bad Boy South, German rap star Kool Savas and more. Billboard Blackmarket will be available through empiremusic.ch, sonnyseeza.com and hiphop.org, as a double CD or download for $9.99.

About Empire Music:

In the summer of 2011, a board of young visionaries led by CEO Matthieu "MDB" Siegenthaler came together in Basel, Switzerland and founded Empire Music. Fed up with the current state of Hip Hop and reminiscing the music of the mid-to-late nineties, they decided to work together to bring back the sound of the golden era. As if one lofty goal wasn't enough, Empire Music aims to be the first record label out of Switzerland to make an impact on the international Hip Hop industry. In order to achieve these ambitious goals, Empire unites greats of the golden era, renowned veteran producers and emerging talents all sharing a common ideal of Hip Hop.

Trip to Neverland

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre will transport audiences to the fantastical world of Neverland when it opens its 42nd season with "Peter Pan" with live music at the Benedum Center, Downtown.

Artistic director Terrence Orr selected an adaptation of J.M. Barrie's turn-of-the-century tale by choreographer Jorden Morris, who formerly danced with Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet. The PBT orchestra, headed by Charles Barker, will perform the score.

"This is a much more sophisticated kind of production," Mr. Orr said.

Characters soar through the air, face off in duels and dance amidst the whimsical set pieces. For children, there is lots of adventure and colorful costumes, and for adults there are sentimental scenes, such as when Mr. and Mrs. Darling express concern for their missing children through a pas de deux in the second act.

The three-day run will feature PBT's full company, plus dancers from its graduate program and children. Artists who starred in PBT's last "Peter Pan" have been drawing on those experiences to help them ready for this one.

Times are 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $22.75 to $90.75 at 412-456-6666 or www.pbt.org.
