Bently Boy’s Debut Mixtape Is Truly Destined 2 Be Here Now

The globe-trotting artist steps up and aims high with his potent new collection.

Bently Boy comes into his own with his unstoppable new EP Destined 2 Be — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Fresh from collaborating on the track Alexander McQueen with American rap heavyweight NLE Choppa, the Dubai-based Bently Boy shakes hands with success on his new hip-hop mixtape, which also introduces his new Trap banger and focus track Summer Nights. With 10 singles navigating between a fierce and motivational mood, this mixtape draws on many inspirations.

“For this project, I wanted to get more personal with my fans and talk about things I have never brought up before,” Bently Boy says. “Love, heartbreak, battling demons, God and the devil, motivation and more of my story and who I am as a character.”

Indeed, the artist has an inspiring background beyond music, overcoming the challenges of street life to gradually rebuild his life. After being born in Iraq, growing up in Australia presented a complex cultural adaptation that strengthened him, and even led him to master multiple languages. He envisioned settling in the U.S. to make his dreams come true, but faced obstacles that led him to divide his time between Mexico and Canada. This further enriched his cultural blend, allowed him to discover new musical genres, and helped him find the positive side of adversity.


This experience in Mexico motivated him to work eight hours daily at the studio. There, he met up with local artists and producers who shared the same level of musical passion. He started creating Summer Nights with Mexican artist F.ever, who contributes powerful rap in Spanish. This union expands the horizons of the track, adding a Latin touch and elevating its potential. This single sounds just like those endless warm summer nights beside the pool. As summertime gets closer, deep beats and romantic lyrics characterize Summer Nights, creating an enigmatic atmosphere:

“Me and you in the summer nights,
I’ma stay cause it feels right.
I don’t know how to feel
when it comes to me and you, baby.”

The mixtape also features other tracks like 444 (about the process of overcoming internal battles and showcases his determination, ambition, and resilience), or I’m Doing Fine, celebrating his success and self-confidence.

Destined 2 Be teams Bently Boy with well-known producer Adam H. (DJ Khaled, Ne-Yo, Ray J) and Grammy-winning mixer Orlando Calzada (Destiny’s Child, Lady Gaga, B2K). “I like to receive input from other minds,” says Bently Boy, adding “music is a team sport… Collaborators bring a fresh perspective that keeps my music evolving. Working with producers, vocalists, and other artists helps me tap into new sounds and techniques I might not have considered on my own.”
