Ben Barbic is on radio rotation “Close 2 Peace” ft. Craigy T.
“Rapping fast in the song’s verses, delivering words with the agility and speed of a semiautomatic, Barbic’s abilities are seen as a direct metaphor for anti-violence — words are his weapon, shoot knowledge over bullets. Craigy-T’s soothing demeanor in the track balances Barbic’s lyrical aggression, creating the perfect yin and yang.” – Top Shelf Music
