Transcript for Catching up with Taylor Bennett live on 'GMA'
Robin, back up to you. Thank you, rob. Here now with Taylor Bennett. "Interview" magazine calls him -- Generation rapper. He's the brother of chance the rapper. His album "Be yourself" is out now. He's going to perform in just a moment. Love you, man. Yes. I want to talk to you. I want people to get to know you. Thank you so much. Your music, I'm telling you, and some of your lyrics, when you say working, working, working is the Bennett curse. What did you mean by that? I meant that in a good, in a positive curse way, something instilled in me and my brother, from great parents, Ken and Lisa Bennett from Chicago, Illinois, the idea that enough is never enough, and that if you kick that door down there's endless possibilities. And always put your best foot forward. That's carried over to us and in ways when you're in a position and it's so accustomed to you, you can feel like that's a curse. Doesn't have to be a bad thing and I am just super excited. You turned it into a positive. Other people could see it as a negative and sometimes they do but you turned it into a positive. You and your brother have been doing this -- that talent show back in the day? Yeah. I did a talent show back in the day. My parents signed us up. The name of the group was to be or not to be. And we won Shocking. Yeah. And we did a remix of a neo song called "So quick." Chance did the rap but I RAPD it. My dad said, okay, we're going to let Taylor rap it and that made chance so upset. Everybody justoved it and I remember still to this day there's always somebody, brother, rapper, you name it, he's the best. What's so great, you are yourself. You came out on Twitter. You let people know the true you and you felt the love and the response from folks. Yeah. Be yourself. Yeah. I came out the day before my birthday, before I turned 21. I felt like it was a time in the world for me to make a decision that I'm a grown man. And you know, I figured that I'm old enough to vote, smoke and join the army, why not be old enough to be myself. Well you did that.
