Westside Gunn & Conway Speak on Signing with Eminem (Plus New Freestyle)


The legacy and tradition continues, Shady Records signed an exclusive deal with New York based label, Griselda Records for artists, Westside Gunn and Conway. What started off as Goliath Management deal, turned into a full-fledged record deal!


These 2 brothers swung by Sway in the Morning with Benny the Butcher to talk about their journey. From their low days of Conway being shot in the head and paralyzed down the side of his face, to the highs of getting the news of signing to Shady Records.


We heard they’ve also worked with legends like 9th Wonder and DJ Premier — so Sway had to put them on the spot to spit some bars! watch the full interview and freestyle below.


Sway: What does [signing with Shady Records] feels like? 


Conway: It’s a dream come true, man. You can imagine how that feel.


Sway: When did you first meet Em? 


Westside Gunn: “I’ve been fucking with Paul [Rosenberg] for a while, that’s a big hommie. He gave us opportunity. We really just met Marshall for the first time couple of weeks ago in Detroit and soon as he seen us and we seen him it was just like all love man, shout out to Marshall. This was going on for a while man, shout out to Mike. I was going back and forth to the offices like a year and every time I’m in New York I show up, play new music, we kickin’, we build. First it was going to be like ‘Goliath Management thing’ and then it ended a label deal. It’s crazy how things worked. Paul was like ‘You know what? fuck the management. I got something better for you all’ and it was like ‘wow.’ I was not expecting it. Because I was working hard for few years to even make this happen and it worked out just like that.


Then Westside Gunn reveals that they have a project coming with Eminem’s DJ – Alchemist.  You can watch the interview and freestyle below:
