Westside’s music update comes just a few days after he was promoting Griselda’s first foray into film. His labelmate Benny The Butcher is the star and executive producer of the label’s debut movie Conflicted, which is directed by AK.Reed Films.
“I’ve literally watched this movie Everyday since it’s completion..the story, the acting, the shots everything is A1,” WSG declared via social media. “I promise u you will watch this 50x like any other classic in the streets I’m so Happy and Proud of everybody who participated in the making of this Film, When this Drop everything changing, What GRISELDA did for Music will be the same way for Film it’s All about the ART.”
Elsewhere in the Griselda crew, Conway The Machine has stayed busy this year by releasing two collaborative projects. He linked up with The Alchemist for the LULU EP in March and followed it up with Big Ghost LTD-produced No One Mourns The Wicked in May.
As for Benny, he’s kept his name in the mix of late by participating in NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series. The Griselda family also expanded this year with the signing of its first female rapper, Armani Caesar.
