Westside Gunn released his latest installment ‘Hitler Wears Hermes VI’ on Halloween. I just had the pleasure of checking Westside Gunn and his Griselda family performing at A3C Festival this year. Now we are blessed with another dope project from the rising artist.
I love the direction Griselda has in business and music. I look forward to seeing their growth. Their projects always have a wild creative concept behind the artwork. I respect that. This project definitely has a flair for the dramatics. There are two covers — one with West Side Gunn rocking a ski mask and the other is a creepy pic of the loathed dictator Hilter dawning a third eye.
‘Hitler Wears Hermes VI’ consists of 13 tracks with various artists featured, such as Benny the Butcher, Eto, Nick Grant, Lord Flee, Chyno Nyno and Keisha Plum who is always featured reciting raw spoken word. I always look forward to hearing her. The production is prolific and invigorating and why wouldn’t it be with producers like Alchemist, Evidence, Daringer, DJ Muggs, Marco Polo, Sadhu Gold and JR Swiftz.
What more can I say, its signature WSG with abstract grimy beats, hardcore delivery, and a slew of ill adlibs. My favorite joints are “Gigis”, “Niggas in Puerto Rico”, “Niagara Cafe” and “Ready Made”.
