The boys of Griselda Records -- now signed to Shady Records -- are spreading their brand of grimy Buffalo boom-bap across the world. While the label's loyal fanbase waits for Conway The Machine's long-awaited G.O.A.T album, the other two Griselda founders continue to supply a steady stream of audio dope. Westside Gunn has already included "RAW IS FLYGOD" -- his latest work with in-house producer Daringer -- among his top 5 records. That means you should press play on this 14-minute beauty, an epic showcase of vivid mobster raps and cinematic instrumentals from one of the new school's wisest crate-diggers.
Yep, this one bumps for all of its 14-minute runtime. It's more like a mini-EP than a song, as "RAW IS FLYGOD" features a total of five different productions from Daringer, each one bringing out a different energy from WSG. There's also an appearance from WS Pootie, WSG's young daughter, as well as sampled ringside sermons from wrestling greats like Ravishing Rick Rude.
Ayo, my best friend got a hunnid shots
Flipped his whole fuckin' block
Can't go to sleep without my gun
FlyGod, it's only one
