Hailing from Johannesburg, the exceptionally talented Benjamin III has just graced the music scene with his latest EP, Wounds. Enchanting listeners with a trio of enticing tracks – “Wounds,” “Open,” and “Wide” – the South African musician was inspired from Kendrick Lamar‘s acclaimed LP, Section.80

The melodies resonate with raw emotion, and the soul-stirring lyrics provide a beacon of hope, compelling listeners to embark on a path of healing and self-discovery. Through Benjamin III‘s captivating soundscapes, the artist creates a powerful space where vulnerability is celebrated, and personal growth becomes an empowering destination.

In “Open,” the artist fearlessly delves into the realms of personal conflict and soul-searching, baring his struggles with faith and navigating through a haze of uncertainty. The departure of his grandmother becomes a symbol of grief and isolation, prompting him to implore for divine guidance. 

“Wide” takes him even deeper, where he comes to the realization that the root of his wounds lies within himself, underscoring the importance of self-examination and the process of healing. 

The opening track addresses themes of faith, human struggles, and the universal quest for understanding. Benjamin‘s vulnerability shines through as he seeks empathy and companionship, shedding light on societal issues and emphasizing the significance of introspection.

Benjamin‘s artistic journey transcends the realm of simple song creation, as he draws inspiration from icons like Michael Jackson, Miriam Makeba, Lauryn Hill, Fela Kuti, Tupac Shakur, and Kendrick Lamar. Their influence becomes evident in the powerful tracks he creates, as he fulfills his musical ambitions, leaving an unforgettable imprint on the scene.
