OG tapes sold-out like hot cakes. Pondering a second run. DL now widely available while I ponder. Enjoy.
The emergence of Griselda Records (Westside Gunn, Conway, Benny the Butcher, & Daringer) and former affiliates like Mach Hommy/Camoflauge Monk/The God Fahim are one of the greatest things to happen to Rap Music in some time. How all these guys have released such a large amount of quality music in such a short amount of time is beyond me. I wanted to do a Griselda mix, but there's really no point in just doing a "best of…" type mix IMO. The label is named after the infamous drug trafficker, Griselda Blanco. Trying to come up with something fresh for the mix, I thought mixing choice cuts from Westside Gunn/Conway with Barry White (since Blanco is Spanish for White) would be a good fit. I started out just tinkering with the idea, but the mix fell together pretty organically. This mix didn't even touch the catalogs of Mach Hommy/The God Fahim/Camoflauge Monk, and still left a lot of Westside Gunn material on the cutting room floor; so there's plenty of material for another one or two volumes of the mix. No promises, but there's certainly enough music if the demand is there.
