DJ Premier gathered up Westside Gunn, Conway, and Benny of Griselda Records for his new single “Headlines”, and it doesn’t disappoint in the slightest.
I’ve been a huge fan of the Griselda movement ever since Westside Gunn dropped one of the best rap albums of last year with Supreme Blientele. The contradiction between Gunn’s raw delivery and the graceful production featured throughout the album was unlike anything I’ve ever heard, and I instantly became a fan, checking out his previous works along with the rest of the Griselda crew.
The title of this track couldn’t be more fitting, as it’s a flashy cut from all directions that showcases some of the most talented rappers at the moment. The three of them drop merciless and braggadocious verses over a hard-hitting, yet elegant beat from DJ Premier that features some luxurious sounding strings driving the instrumental forward, and Westside Gunn handles the hook.
This is a collaborative cut that every rap fan should check out, give it a listen below.
