For the last few years, the trio of Westside Gunn, Conway and Benny the Butcher have had a stranglehold on the game with a bevy of amazing projects like FLYGOD, Supreme Blientele, Reject 2, Tana Talk 3, Everybody Is F.O.O.D. and countless others.
And now, with plenty more left in the chamber, the Griselda trio have teamed up with DJ Premier to assist the legendary producer on his brand new single, “Headlines.”
“I’ve wanted to do a record with them individually for a few years now,” DJ Premier says. “I had been listening to Westside Gunn first. Conway got my lyrical attention very heavy when Alchemist told me to listen to how he rhymes. Then after I got in tune with Benny’s songs, I immediately knew that in order to follow up the Casanova record it made sense to have all three on the same single. ‘Headlines’ was made organically from a blank canvas at my studio at 2am and it happened so fast; and I loved their work ethic.”
“Working with Preemo was surreal and watching him cook from scratch; I still can’t believe the record is done,” Westside Gunn adds. “Shooting the video in my city (directed by Jason Goldwatch in Buffalo, NY) makes it even more legendary! This is just the beginning of our cook up and definitely one of the only things on my bucket list.”
