Westside Gunn is prepping the follow-up to his 2020 Who Made The Sunshine album and recently took to Instagram to give insight as to who else wants to add to Griselda’s growing fanfare.
The Buffalo soldier posted a photo of him alongside Cactus Jack leader and Hip Hop’s most noted pitchman of 2020 in Travis Scott on Friday (February 12), touting not only Scott’s riches but his desires to work specifically with Gunn.
“The Homie @travisscott flew that PJ in to come fuck wit me… that’s RNS!!!” Gunn wrote. “And we something @griseldarecords x @cactusjack #CULTURE #ICON #DIOR #BUFFALOKIDS”
Scott’s been in high demand in recent weeks. After guest-starring on Erica Banks’ “Buss It” remix, the Houston star has reportedly been asked by Justin Timberlake to appear on his upcoming new album.
For Gunn, the next step after Who Made The Sunshine will be the first after his departure from Shady Records. After he teased the next installment of his Hitler Wears Hermes series in October 2020, Gunn went on The Joe Budden Podcast to confirm his Shady deal was no more.
“I’m off Shady. I’m actually a free agent,” he emphatically told Budden, Mal and Rory. “It feels great. Who Made The Sunshine was it. I already spoke to Paul [Rosenberg]. Everything’s good. Like, everything’s signed, sealed and delivered I have my paperwork, like I’m off Shady.”
He added, “I’m one of those type of dudes I’m not no public talkin’ nigga. That’s just how I move. It’s like sayin’ me and Benny or me and Conway or Conway and Benny or whoever, we might have a disagreement, but the world will never know. We still gonna be brothers and cousins. It’s the same way even with business, because at the end of the day, this a big world. Even if somebody else is a sucka, I’m never gonna play that sucka role.”
