Griselda has put their foot on the neck of 2019 and refused to let up. Witch WWCD fast approaching, Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher and Conway connect over the Daringer and Beat Butcha-laced banger “Dr. Bird’s.”
The Griselda Gang continue to smash the industry over the head with banger after banger. With Conway’s Look What I Became… dropping on September 13, The Machine enlists some verbal support from cohorts Westside Gunn and Benny The Butcher on the Daringer produced “Tito’s Back.”
SKYZOO FEAT. ELZHI, WESTSIDE GUNN, CONWAY & BENNY THE BUTCHER – EASTERN CONFERENCE ALL STARS (PRODUCED BY PETE ROCK)
Skyzoo and Pete Rock assemble a collection of the East Coast’s finest spitters for “Eastern Conference All Stars.” The song, taken from Skyzoo and Pete Rock’s forthcoming Retropolitan album that drops on September 20, finds all five emcees delivering bars over some Chocolate Boy Wonda production.
Bun B and Statik Selektah are still rolling out videos from their collaborative project TRILLSTATIK and now we get the visuals for “Concrete” that features Termanology and Westside Gunn. Bun and Gunn shoot their segment in Houston while Statik and Term rock the concert in Brooklyn.
First you had to hear it, now you have to see it. Griselda and DJ Premier connect for “Headlines” and the set of gritty visuals find the three emcees surrounding the legendary producer as they deliver their bars while Preemo holds up a frame with the words. We need more of this.
After catching a body on the DJ Premier-produced “Headlines,” Conway, Benny, Westside Gunn and Ricky drop by Sway in the Morning to deliver a freestyle and stay on top of your head with some nasty Griselda bars.
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.”
Nick Grant connects with Westside Gunn as the duo flex over a twinkling key arrangement on “Price Tag.”
Westside Gunn tag teams with fellow pro wrestling fan Smoke DZA to remix “Finn Balor” with a new beat by DJ Green Lantern.
After dropping off “Karl,” Westside Gunn decides to give us “One More Hit” before the end of the week. Enjoy.
