Shady Records has signed an exclusive deal with Buffalo, NY-based hip-hop label Griselda Records for artists Westside Gunn and Conway. In doing so, the rappers--who are also brothers--become the first out of Buffalo to sign a deal with major label distribution. Griselda was founded by Westside Gunn in 2014.
Commented Eminem, "The style and energy of Griselda Records, Gunn and Conway are infectious. We can't wait to put them on the platform they have earned and deserve."
“We’re bringing a new sound to the game, but it’s also reminiscent of the grimey ‘90s,” said Griselda founder and recording artist Westside Gunn. “Art is in everything we do…it’s the essence. We’re fusing boom-bap/dark sounds with the hipster cool kid lifestyle. A new lane is being carved.”
Aside from their solo projects, Gunn and Conway also record together as Hall n’ Nash (paying homage to their favorite WWE tag team the Outsiders). They recently completed a soon-to-be-released project with the Alchemist, and the duo will also be releasing an album under the Shady deal. Westside Gunn’s last project was the Hitler Wears Hermes 4 mixtape, which was released in October. The 11-track project includes features from Stalley, Conway, Smoke DZA and more. Conway has been releasing tracks for his Devil’s Reject mixtape series and has been heard on Shade 45’s Tony Touch and Statik Selektah shows.
