Shady Records Inks Deal With Westside Gunn and Conway’s Griselda Records
Westside Gunn and Conway's Griselda Records just got blessed with a major come-up. The indie label founded by Westide Gunn in 2014 has officially inked a deal with Eminem's Shady Records for distribution.
"We are very excited to announce that we have signed a deal with Griselda Records for both solo and joint projects from Westside Gunn and Conway," read the Shady Records press release issued today (March 3). Eminem himself tweeted out the news, writing "Welcome to the family" to the two Buffalo, N.Y. MC's.
The duo, who are real-life brothers, first started in the rap game in the early 2000's. Over the years, the pair have built up a loyal online fanbase and worked with the likes of Mobb Deep, Meyhem Lauren, Action Bronson, The Alchemist, Smoke DZA and more. In the last year, Conway has dropped tracks off his Devil’s Reject mixtape series while Westside Gunn dropped his debut studio album FLYGOD to critical acclaim. At the end of last year, the pair shared with B-Real that they'd finished an entire album with The Alchemist in less than two days and plan to drop it soon. The duo will reportedly be releasing an album under the Shady deal.
“The style and energy of Griselda Records, Gunn and Conway are infectious," said Eminem in the Shady Records press release. "We can’t wait to put them on the platform they have earned and deserve.”
In celebration for the new deal, Shady Records also premiered a new song by Gunn and Conway called "Hall N' Nash" produced by Just Blaze. Listen to the new track below. Congrats to Westside Gunn and Conway!
