CL Critic Jess Goodson Recommends: Joining PA rap duo Joey Valence & Brae at their Atlanta tour stop is local experimental hip-hop producer Popstar Benny. In 2016, Benny started his own independent label, Popstar FM, to pursue his own musical endeavors and become a solo artist. Benny’s 2023 album University! is like an expansive trip through a video game, full of twists and turns that draw elements from just about every genre. This 20-track record features many other local legends like Bear1Boss, Pincesa 28, and Tony Shhnow. — JG
