Westside Gunn is one of the grimiest emcees in the rap game. If you’re into ’90s era Mobb Deep, Capone-N-Noreaga, Gravediggaz and that old Wu-Tang Clan, then Westside Gunn should be on your playlist.
After announcing a forthcoming album, Riots on Fashion Ave, the follow-up to FlyGod (March) and Hitler Wears Hermes 4, the Buffalo native released the first single, “Brains Flew By.”
Over a sooty and dark instrumental, Westside delivers a ghetto horror anthem as he describes going at foes from close range. Please don’t try this at home. It’s only entertainment.
Fans can pre-order Riots on Fashion Ave over at iTunes. Hitler Wears Hermes 4 is available for streaming below on Spotify, and listen to “Brains Flew By” above.
