By now it's hard to ignore Buffalo, New York's Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, and Benny The Butcher. While they're all prolific solo artists, they often come together to create the underground supergroup, Griselda. Griselda Records (the group as well as Westside Gunn and Conway as solo artists) inked a deal with Shady Records in 2017. Since then, they've put out a plethora of solo projects, including Westside Gunn's recent installment of Hitler Wears Hermes.
Griselda Records also inked a management deal with Roc Nation, a move that was announced with a photo of JAY-Z on Instagram.
The album WWCD is named after artist and close affiliate Machine Gunn Black (a.k.a. Chine Gunn). Machine Gunn was the first cousin of Westside Gunn and the half brother of Benny The Butcher. He was murdered in Buffalo while the group was still in its infancy. They've all dedicated lyrics and songs to Machine Gunn prior to paying homage with this album.
Most of the album's production was handled by Griselda's in-house producer, Daringer. WWCD boasts features from Raekwon, 50 Cent, Eminem, and more. It is also accompanied by the WWCD Documentary series. The series will detail the individual journeys of each Griselda member as well as Daringer. Watch the trailer for the docu-series below.
