Westside Gunn & Conway – Griselda Ghost (FreEP)

blame it on JES7 September 26, 2015

A lot of y’all are O.G. enough to remember one of the greatest comment section wordsmiths in the history of blogs, and let’s face it, rap’s most celebrated troll: “Big Ghost” – aka Thor Molecules aka Shampoo Bracelets.

Known for his refined, vigorous and unadulterated commentary on some of the softest rappers in the game, Big Ghost – an obvious fan and caricature of the real Ghostface Killah kept us waiting, coming back for more of his colorful narration and priceless album reviews; never scared to speak his mind.

Just like the real Ghostdeini, Big Ghost’s quick wit, off-the-cuff observations permeated the blogosphere with indescribable flyness that were consistently quotable. If you were wack, sang a little too much in your music, wore suspect outfits or just named Drake – you weren’t safe.

What many, including myself, did not know is that Big Ghost is just as talented with spilling vocabulary as he is with making beats. To introduce you to his sound, we’re providing you with this new mixtape from Westside Gunn and Conway. Griselda Ghost is nine cuts of sample-based, 90s boom-bap – produced entirely by Big Ghost. Stream and download it below.

Cats always talmbout they tryna bring the 90s back…n then literally try n make 90s soundin type shit. The Westside Gunn x Conway approach always been more bout bringin the ESSENCE of 90s/classic hip hop back. This EP aint no different from that namsayin. All production was handled by Big Ghost Ltd so you already kno the shit gon be endless fire emojis. This is pure grimy NY hip hop in its purest form. Fxck all the stupid shit. Put down the room temperature soy milk rap n get blessed by the flyness.
