Back in February of 2014, Benga announced that he would be retiring from DJing in order to focus on his family.

While Benga kept relatively quiet for the past year, Benga has been on an uploading rampage on SoundCloud featuring remixes of Kendrick Lamar, Burno Marks and many new originals.

Now Benga has taken to Twitter to discuss his “mental health” issue that took him out of the DJing spotlight last year. “My bipolar was brought on by drugs and the schizophrenia was the result of excessive touring,” said Benga. He went on to say that he doesn't want sympathy, but instead wants to raise awareness. “If I had help early the damage could have been controlled.”
