What happens when Griselda connects with DJ Premier? Pure wickedness.
Westside Gunn, Conway and Benny put their verbal stylings over some head-snapping DJ Premier production on “Headlines,” which is released on Payday Records.
“I’ve wanted to do a record with them individually for a few years now,” DJ Premier says. “I had been listening to Westside Gunn first. Conway got my lyrical attention very heavy when Alchemist told me to listen to how he rhymes. Then after I got in tune with Benny’s songs, I immediately knew that in order to follow up the Casanova record it made sense to have all three on the same single. ‘Headlines’ was made organically from a blank canvas at my studio at 2am and it happened so fast; and I loved their work ethic.”
With Beast Mode 3 finally dropping, here’s a taste of what’s on deck as Sheek Louch recruits Havoc and Fat Joe to get on his “New York Shit.”

Could an album be on the horizon?
Kool Keith is keeping it simple by titling his next album KEITH. Produced entirely by the Beatnuts Psycho Les, Dr. Octagon will drop the project on July 12th. To kick off the campaign, Keith pulls B-Real away from cooking with marijuana on Viceland for “Zero Fux.”
Flying Lotus shares another joint from his upcoming Flamagra album with the Anderson .Paak assisted “More.”
KXNG Crooked keeps it moving and hijacks Mobb Deep’s “Quiet Storm” for a Dizz flip on “The Storm.”
Daringer has been responsible for providing the backdrops for Conway, Westside Gunn, Benny and the rest of those wild boys from Upstate NY. The producer takes part in Fat Beats’ “Baker’s Dozen” that gives producers the spotlight on their craftwork. With the full project dropping on June 7th, Daringer kicks things off with the mild-mannered “Afet.”
KXNG Crooked keeps things rolling and salutes the blogs that have supported him over the years as he made his way to being the elite emcee that he is today over a Dizz flip of “Two Dope Boys” on “Cadillac.”
DJ Tiger gives us a project we didn’t know we needed when he blends DJ Premier production with the lyrics of the late, great Nipsey Hussle with “The Premier Hussle” mixtape. Turn this up and pour out a little something for Nipsey Hussle. Rest in power Neighborhood Nip!
