After seeing the movie Wild Style, Benzino felt inspired to start a rap career. He was also one of the founders of two rap groups: the Almighty RSO (and Made Men).

Eminem and Benzino have been feuding since 2003. The two rappers started having issues after Benzino’s The Source magazine rated Eminem’s song “My Name Is” 4 out of 5 due to his race. Since then, both have released a few diss tracks targeting each other such as “Pull Your Skirt Up”, and “Die Another Day”.
