[DISCUSSION] Westside Gunn - FLYGOD (5 years later)


With 3 mixtapes from the Hitler Wears Hermes series deep, 2 collaborative mixtapes out (Hall & Nash with Conway (2015) and Griselda Ghost with Conway and Big Ghost (2015)) and an EP already in rotation (Roses are Red… So is Blood, (2016)), Buffalo’s own Westside Gunn releases on March 11, 2016 his debut studio album, FLYGOD, through his own record label, Griselda Records.

The album includes guest appearances from Action Bronson, Benny the Butcher, Bro AA Rashid, Chase Deniro, Conway the Machine, Danny Brown, DJ Q-Bert, Keisha Plum, Mach-Hommy, Meyhem Lauren, Roc Marciano, Skyzoo, and Your Old Droog. The album's beats are produced by Daringer, The Alchemist, Apollo Brown, Camouflage Monk, Roc Marciano, Statik Selektah, and Tha God Fahim.

“A man with upper class taste and a lower class upbringing, Westside Gunn has never been shy to blur the lines between stardom and struggle. He will praise the name of the lord wearing the finest silks this side of the hemisphere, and a Gucci cancer-awareness bracelet dripping in jewels, only to have to drive-by a block 30 minutes later. It's not a direct concept album, but it accidentally becomes one in the process of a front-to-end listen, bouncing between luxury and grit for nearly an hour.” – Rollo_P
