On hip-hop’s underground, there are few (if any) movements stronger than that of Griselda Records. The Buffalo collective is known for fire flows and grimy rhymes over soulful beats that provide a vintage sound for the label. In addition to Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn is one of the premier voices at the helm of GxFR. Following up on his release earlier this year of Supreme Blientele, Gunn dropped his latest, Hitler Wears Hermes 6, on Halloween. If you aren’t familiar, the series’ title is Westside Gunn’s flip of the film The Devil Wears Prada. Joining Westside Gunn n the lyrical aspect of the album are Benny The Butcher, Keisha Plum, Lord Flee, Nick Grant and Lil Eto. Production credits on the 13-track project include Daringer, The Alchemist, DJ Muggs and Evidence, among others.
