WATCH: Kentucky RB Benny Snell freestyle raps during Fan Day

Benny Snell

Kentucky running back Benny Snell has put out songs as an amateur rapper, so it should come as no surprise that he’s able to freestyle when the time comes. And that’s what he did Saturday during the Wildcats’ Fan Day.

Snell began his freestyle when a fan in the autograph line apparently offered to beatbox for him.

Snell’s freestyle was about Fan Day and Kentucky football. After he finished, he told the fan that the moment made his day.

Snell, who goes by “Benny Tha Bandit” for his rapper name, has three songs on his SoundCloud page, all of which have been put out in the last five months.

After receiving some criticism for his rapping, Snell told The Lexington Herald-Leader during Kentucky’s recent media day that he doesn’t take it seriously and only does it for fun.

Last season as a true freshman, Snell was one of the top rushers in the SEC with 1,091 yards and 13 touchdowns, while splitting time with Stanley “Boom” Williams who currently is on the Cincinnati Bengals after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent.
