Westside Gunn Will Release "Michelle Records" Under One Condition

There are very few artists in the world who've produced as much art as Westside Gunn. Though the output slowed down in recent years, there was a time when Griselda fans were really eating out here. Numerous projects per year, including albums, mixtapes, and EPs, stellar guest appearances, and a slew of singles kept the growing fanbase fed. However, in the wake of his recent album, And Then You Pray For Me, he revealed that it would be his final studio album. Of course, this led to the assumption that he was retiring completely. 

The rumors picked up instantaneously, leading to dismay among the die-hard Griselda fans who've been rallying behind the Buffalo-based collective for over 10 years. Fortunately, Gunn quickly dispelled the rumors surrounding retirement during an interview with Rolling Stone. In fact, he stated that fans could expect even more music now that he isn't tethered to the idea of traditional studio albums. Still, there's one particular album that fans hope to see surface, Michelle Records.

If there's ever an instance where Westside Gunn loses everything to his name, he plans on banking on Michelle Records to lift him out of financial hardships. During our latest cover story with Westside Gunn, he explains that he has the album tucked away with no immediate plans to release it. However, in the vein of Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, the infamous body of work that has yet to be heard by the public, Gunn plans to turn it into an art piece "Whenever I get broke, I'm saying, lookin' like Franklin [Saint] in the last episode [of Snowfall], I know I can cash in that Michelle Records," he says.

"I might be sittin' in the f*ckin' MoMA with a tuxedo on," he continues. Start the highest bidder at... let me start it at... we'll start it at $5 million," Gunn says. Interestingly enough, Westside Gunn isn't rapping on the album at all. He teased snippets of the production from the album on social media but he confirmed that he leans into his role as a curator even more so on Michelle Records. "I could play that shit right now," he adds, revealing that the album is complete. "I was already curating ahead of its time. I'm not on one song, but it already [has] your favorites on it."
