Titled FLYGOD Is Good… All The Time, Westside Gunn’s latest is a joint effort alongside veteran producer Mr. Green and features six new tracks — including the hard-hitting “Stash House” record we debuted yesterday.
“We were originally supposed to do an episode of my show Live From The Streets. He’s a fan of that, so we were going to do an episode,” Mr. Green previously explained to us, breaking down the project’s origins. “I was really loving what they [Griselda Records[ did; I was following the whole Griselda movement and I loved what I saw. It took a little convincing, but I convinced him to do the whole EP. I’m pretty proud of the whole way it turned out. I think he’s got a real tight bond and chemistry with his main producer Daringer.”
While today’s EP wasn’t created in-studio, Gunn and Green’s creative connection showcases a seamless chemistry. “We were originally going to film the project, but I kept being out of town,” Mr. Green recalls. “He would be in New York City and hit me up like, ‘Yo, let’s record it Wednesday!’ Then I would be in Miami filming something for Mountain Dew. Or, he would be New York and I’d be LA. Then, I would be in LA and he would be somewhere else. We were originally trying to do something different than what we did. Scheduling-wise, we were never able actually to lock in a shooting date. So, we ended up doing it only audio. It was originally supposed to be more of a Live From the Streets film project than a music project, but it just sort of morphed into a dope music project.”
