The two will release Black Vladimir on August 26. “I went to Buffalo to kick it with Griselda. It was a Halloween show and Westside Gunn brought out me and Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) as special guests. Afterward, I was in Buffalo for a few days with Daringer, Conway and Westside Gunn making some music. Wes saw the chemistry I had with Daringer and suggested we should do an album together,” Meyhem Lauren says about the collaboration. “The first three songs we made in Daringer’s house. All of Griselda was there and it bore witness to the process, which is why you hear them doing ad-libs on songs their not even on. It was natural, fun, easy and it just flowed. Griselda is now a household brand; my cooking shows and other work were flourishing and growing. We had a little lull in between, but really picked things back up during the pandemic and now we’re finally here.”
Meyhem and Daringer have also share the project’s latest focus track, “Red Pesto,” with Conway The Machine.
