The last time we saw San Diego recording artist Teddy Benson in 2021, he had a full set of mighty, thickset locs tumbling unrestrainedly about his head and shoulders.
In a dramatic change in semblance, he arrived at the warehouse for his 2023 appearance on The Longhairs podcast high and tight, with a single, solitary remaining dreadlock issuing from the base of his neckline.
This begged the inevitable first question in our interview with Teddy Benson: why’d you cut off your locs? And why did you keep just one?
Acknowledging that hair is precious, imparting its organic nature in that it both receives and emits power and essence, Teddy reveals that in the end, much like his music, it’s about the energy.
Receive the energy, with lessons in life and hip hop music, when you listen to Teddy Benson on Let It Ride.
