Buffalo, NY – Benny The Butcher issued a warning to fans supporting his Black Soprano Family apparel. The Griselda Records MC shared a text about a man with BSF gear getting arrested for a parole violation because Buffalo police allegedly claimed the merch is gang-affiliated.

“If u buy a shirt from me your gang related according to Buffalo Police and Parole,” he wrote on Twitter. “be careful.”

Benny was alerted to the situation by someone named Mrs. Patty, who texted him the following message:

“Hi sweetie its Mrs. Patty just tried to call you,” she wrote. “Streets said call you, he got arrested for parole violation his officer claiming the BSF shirts, hats and t shirts book bags are gang related and charging him for parole violation.”

Benny’s BSF brand facing scrutiny from Buffalo police comes a few weeks after Conway The Machine was handcuffed in the Griselda crew’s hometown. Although Conway was never taken into custody, he was put in cuffs by law enforcement officials amid the late DJ Shay’s funeral proceedings.

Shay was a respected member of the Buffalo Hip Hop scene who mentored the Griselda artists. Conway paid tribute to the DJ on his From King To A God album, which dropped on September 11.

Prior to the loss of Shay, Benny introduced his BSF crew to the world by teaming up with DJ Drama for a new edition of Gangsta Grillz. The Black Soprano Family project showcased Benny’s artists such as Rick Hyde and Heem.
