Exclusive: Don Benjamin Talks Music, Modeling And Man Crush Mondays

Published

When you hear the name Don Benjamin, you probably first think ‘oh, that uncomfortably good looking model.” Or maybe for some of you, Don has even been your Man Crush Monday. But soon enough, the name of the former America’s Next Top Model contestant will be heavily thrown around with the likes of some of your rapper and r&b faves.

HipHollywood recently caught up with Benjamin to talk abut his music career and his hopes of making a name for himself in the music industry. “I’ve been working on an EP as of recently,” he told us exclusively. “I have been dropping tracks to get fans familiar with the music because a lot of my fans don’t know me as an artist. They know me more for the modeling.”

The model-turned-rapper, who just landed a social media campaign for Calvin Klein, just dropped an incredibly catchy track with r&b stud, Eric Bellinger. “Eric is crazy talented. The record that I had him get on, I actually already had it ready and he heard it and wanted to get on it.”

Donald Benjamin, the rapper’s legal name, also dished to HipHollywood about being Instafamous and how it feels to always being someones Man Crush Monday. “I don’t get excited off of it, it doesn’t build my ego,” he said. “It’s still weird to me, it still throws me off.”

Humble … we like that.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
