After a short introduction from Raekwon, “Chef Dreds” is the first musical track that holds all three members together on a verse. WWCD somehow is able to capture emotion from each artist without seeming like one had more verses or more edge than the other. Every single moment on WWCD just appears as natural as possible, and describes initially, “Ayo, hanging out the Royce with the Russian, everybody ducking.” It is in this quick display that the voices change and switch from Westside Gunn to Benny The butcher who is able to finish Gunn’s verse. This style works like a golden ticket that gets everyone in rotation and creates segmented murder on a track.
That goes for the production which is exclusively handled by Daringer and Beat Butcha who encapsulate the Griselda motive. Honestly, it is difficult to not be impressed by the work ethic and performance of Griselda Records. From the consistent drops of records, videos, and singles, WWCD feels like a long time coming.
WWCD is dirty in context but clean in production and sound. The topics of drugs, violence, and illegal activity is rampant in Griselda’s music, and even though most of the audience can never relate, the way the story is told is what draws people in. Each vocalist works to carry their own weight both figuratively and literally, dictating that no matter what the situation is, Griselda is able to hold the attention for more than just the 13-track, 46-minute long record. WWCD is gracing a hopeful but continuous history of records that have been like diamonds in the rough among hip-hop.
