Before they became one of the most exciting teams to come out of New York, the Griselda crew went through their own rigors of trying to stand out in a sea full of rappers. After delivering their major-label debut album, WWCD (which made it on our list of favorite albums of 2019), Westside Gunn has shared one of his very first projects.
Dubbed Flyest [email protected]@ In Charge, Mixtape Vol. 1, the 26-track outing — which was originally released in 2005, and is hitting the DSPs for the very first time — gives a bit of insight into the sound Gunn was developing during the nascent stages of his career. There’s even appearances from the late Machine Gun Blak, which will be the first time many of us will be hearing him on wax.
