I’m not gonna lie: I don’t listen to a lot of rap these days.
Let me rephrase that: I don’t really listen to a lot of rap these days, because I feel I’ve outgrown today’s format. I mean, this site has been around for over 10 years now; clearly Shake and I are in our 30s at this point, so a lot of the rap music of today is something we don’t necessarily connect with.
Needless to say, we’re fans of artists who create music whose sound is rooted in a particular era of our lives, and the entire Griselda crew — Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher (who just dropped a project with Smoke DZA and Pete Rock) — make music that reminds us of our younger days.
Now, with their long-awaited Shady Records debut, WWCD, dropping November 29th, the trio have released the first offering from it: “Dr. Birds.”
Check out the Daringer and Beat Butcha-laced banger below.
