Griselda Records and G Perico: New Projects This Week
A little over a week into 2021, and it's looking like 2020 part two with all the madness going on, but at least there's more new music to get hip-hop heads through it all. As the music industry is still on holiday pause, there are a limited number of selections to choose from this week.
The Buffalo, N.Y. rap collective and record label Griselda Records use the drought as an opportunity to flood the market with new product, releasing their new Conflicted (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). The 15-song offering is executive produced by Westside Gunn and the late DJ Shay. The effort features appearances from Griselda's Benny The Butcher, Boldy James, Armani Caesar, Elcamino and Westside, plus additional bars from Dave East, Smoke DZA, Lloyd Banks, Wale, Ransom and more. The project features the previously released single, "3:30 in Houston," which finds Benny recounting the recent robbery attempt in H-Town that left him shot.
Conflicted, the new film the album supports, debuts on next Friday (Jan. 15). The crime drama stars Benny, Westside Gunn, writer Deuce King, Adiyon Dashalon, Michael Rapaport and others. The movie is directed by AK Reed.
Griselda isn't the only big dog to release new music this week. G Perico delivers his first project of the new year. Following after the South Central, L.A. native's 2019 effort, Ten-Eight, Perico drops off an EP titled Free. The six-track project showcases his West Coast flow and gratifying beat selection on tracks like "Talk About It" and "Vegas Weekend."
