Westside Gunn has announced the release date of his upcoming mixtape, “Peace Fly God,” with the help from Madlib whom he worked with numerous times in recent years.
The Griselda rapper returned to the United States after spending time at Paris Fashion Week and confirmed that he’s dropping the mixtape on Friday (July 8). The ever-prolific rapper described the mixtape an “art piece.” It was recorded in just two days and serves as a precursor to his upcoming Michelle Records project.
“I’m back in the states and the homies pulled right up on me, now the tape is complete!!!!!” he wrote. “Idgaf about the mix or the master I wanna keep that shit grimey af, so I’m dropping this Fri fuck it. this not the Album this a ART piece before MICHELLE RECORDS … and ain’t shit fuckin wit it… made in 48hrs #FLYGOD #ART #PEACEFLYGOD #GXFR #CULTURE #CURATION #ICON.”
The Buffalo, New York native has been heavily promoting “Peace Fly God” on Instagram since first announcing it in June. Since then, he has shared several audio teasers, including a collaboration with Kevin Durant-approved Griselda affiliate Stove God Cook$, legendary producer Madlib and longtime Griselda soundman Camoflauge Monk.
Last year, Westside Gunn blessed the masses with “Hitler Wears Hermes 8: Sincerely Adolf,” which came with 13 songs and a wealth of assists from the likes of Stove God Cooks, Mach-Hommy, Jadakiss, Boldy James, Lil Wayne, and (of course) his Griselda mates Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher.
