(TIML NEWS) Are you looking at the second coming of Shady Records? Eminem believes so, as he announced a deal with Griselda Records to sign two new artists: Westside Gunn and Conway.
According to a press release, Shady Records plans to release both solo and joint projects (as Hall N’ Nash) for both rappers.
“The style and energy of Griselda Records, Gunn, and Conway are infectious. We can’t wait to put them on the platform they have earned and deserve,” Eminem said in a statement.
Gunn, who founded Griselda Records in 2014, says he and Conway are carving their own lane into hip-hop. “We’re bringing a new sound to the game, but it’s also reminiscent of the grimey ’90s. Art is in everything we do…it’s the essence. We’re fusing boom-bap/dark sounds with the hipster cool kid lifestyle. A new lane is being carved,” he said.
Before their first official project with Em’s Shady Records, the duo will drop a recently-completed project produced by producer The Alchemist.
Finally, to celebrate, Hall N’ Nash dropped a Just Blaze-produced banger called “MachineGun Black,” which features an introduction from Eminem. “You know, Detroit and Buffalo are kind of like long lost cousins,” says Em. “That’s why to me, it makes sense. Shady and Griselda. I felt like this before. Nostalgia, bitch.”
