Biography

N Visible Man, aka Benny G, got the bug for hip hop when T-Loc, his friend and bandmember, passed him the mic and said you try a freestyle. At that moment the band FSR (Funk-Soul-Rock-n-Roll) rounded the corner from a high school garage band to a professional group of musicians that played a sound that is reminiscent of the Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, and Liquid Soul. Unfortunately, due to differences of opinion the band broke up just as they were starting to make waves in the Chicago live music scene.

N Visible Man took his style back to the drawing board partnering with different rappers, producers and DJ's around Chicago putting out several mixtapes, doing appearances at showcases and open mics and eventually starting an open mic night of his own to further hone his style.

Picking his guitar back up while never setting down the mic, Benny G started making acoustic hip hop, in other words blending guitar, beats, singing and rapping into one sound. He got a record deal from a local label called the Velvet Pineapple. Amidst this excitement the label's recording studio was robbed, the president was severely injured in a car accident and eventually the entire organization was dissolved. In the mean time the sound of acoustic hip hop, ala Jason Mraz and Mat Kearney had reached the mainstream, so N Visible Man took it back to basics and reinvented his style once again.

He started taking gigs at weddings as a DJ, and eventually developed a unique style of mixing incorporating different sounds and genres into one blend. The name DJ N Visible started spreading among the bars and clubs in Chicago as N Visible Man's popularity grew. It was not uncommon to see him playing guitar riffs in the background simultaneously spinning hot cuts from the DJ rig giving the music that everyone knows and loves a brand new flavor packing dance floors across the city.

Benny G started embarking upon the next level of music by getting into music video and film production with his long time friend and "partner in rhyme" T-Loc. They started collaborating on several projects including a documentary, a music video and a short film. Then out of the blue a tragedy happened. T-Loc had a massive heart attack and died. This left Benny G heart broken and despondent about the future of his music and video. His only way to deal with the pain was to once again start rapping. N Visible forged ahead, completing his first DVD release called This Is For Everybody bringing back many of the same artists from his mixtape days dedicating it to the memory of T-Loc.

Nowadays, N Visible Man appears as a featured artist in two bands Illamental, and The Smoking Sextion, and is rapping, producing and engineering for several up and coming hip hop acts out of Chicago. He is also a member of an international record pool called The Soul Selectors. He has also taken a few up and coming DJ's under his wing giving them a platform to spin and create their own music.

He is currently working on three projects- His 20th mixtape, Crack For Your Ipad; His second Video Release, Real Talk DVD; and his first album, One Love Is The Movement; Sell A Million Records.

Lyrics

Binonkulars

Written By: N Visible Man

Ok, ha, ha, ha Yeah, Party People in the House say What? What! Man it was crazy though in fact it was...

CHORUS
Binonkulars
Breakin out of 305, man we had to use plyers
thanks to the Bosnian dude that they hired.
Yesterday was Binonkulars,
LIke the way I use my verbs? music is for his and hers
I like the way my girlie swerves especially when she shakes her curves
This tracks Binonkulars
100% original nothin on earth simular
Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Pluto Jupiter, Mars
Music gets me Binonkulars
Super Star Mondays, must be cookers tippin em up, Fifths of the liquor
Law's always got the chics that are thicker I'm a Renegade nuts like Snickers
I'm totally Binonkulars

My neighbor thought I was nuts, Binok-a-nonk
Till she came to my show shook her Ba-donk-a-donk
I got soul, I got class
I got life man it happens so fast
Spirit of my grand-daddy inside of me
Im a go-getter like my daddy
So Ima go get it like my mommy
Gotta go get it, that-that-that money
Got more cheese than Cuba, NY
Member when I used to be a dork?
Peerin around nothin appears the same
Kinda funny ain't a damn thing changed
Cause I'm still here and I'm still livin
I'm a jive turkey just like Thanksgiving
And Ima keep stuffin, so come her muffin
and get some of this good good livin!

CHORUS
Binonkulars
Breakin out of 305, man we had to use plyers
thanks to the Bosnian dude that they hired.
Yesterday was Binonkulars,
LIke the way I use my verbs, music is for his and hers
I like the way my girlie swerves especially when she shakes her curves
This tracks Binonkulars
100% original nothin on earth simular
Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Pluto Jupiter, Mars
Music gets me Binonkulars
Super Star Mondays, must be cookers tippin em up, Fifths of the liquor
Law's always got the chics that are thicker I'm a Renegade nuts like Snickers
I'm totally Binonkulars

BRIDGE
nonk-ba-nonky, nonkulars...

Grind from sunrise all the way to sunset
It's a nice day and it's a good bet
80 degrees gettin money on the beach
I learned a couple lessons from the things that Sublime teach
Because Lovin is all that I got, and Lovin is all that I want
One Love is the Movement makin Love from the ceiling to the basement
Who's the real Rumrunner, find out at the end of the summer
Benny is a young stunner and our party more funner
After dark at Grant Park, N Visible Man at Buckingham
Fountain Palace, go ask Alice London England, but we're not blingin
We got a new way, we got a new sound
you wanna check it out? Peep how it goes down
This worlds only temporary, none of it was meant to last
so come get with the new cast thats...

BRIDGE
nonk-ba-nonky nonkulars
