How Exactly Did Griselda Blow Up?
 

 
I remember this site kept on mentioning something bout Griselda so I checked it

First song I heard was 5 to 50 and then Mr. T both Dope

But how da fu*k some Buffalo street rappers at damn near late 30s blow up out of nowhere? Now u got cats trying to copy the Griselda sound, Jay and Nas both bigging them up

Greatest come up mane!!!

I'm a fan of Griselda but I still wouldn't say they blew up. They don't have not one gold album or single despite releasing about 50 projects. No diss to them just the facts. But to answer the question they came up because of the type of music they were pushing and they were connected thru Jay-Z homeboy Emory and thru Green Lantern. Also Roc Marci helped out on a small scale by introducing them to some important people that help out independent artists/movements. And with NY radio getting behind rappers that were making music that sounded like it came from other regions (Pop Smoke, Bobby Shmurda, French Montana, Fivio, etc) there was a lane open for rappers that made that old school grimy NY sh*t that was reminiscent of Mobb Deep, The Lox, Wu Tang, CNN, etc. And Griselda filled that void.

Talent, niche, consistency

I been telling n*ggas for years. There IS a market for bars. Everybody don't wanna hear trap music they just accept it cause it's all that's there and n*ggas don't got time to dig for more

Griselda saw a void and filled it

Every time I see them n*ggas I think of what Slaughterhouse shoulda been

the upstate been consistent. maybe too consistent... nyc will always be there for them as a glass ceiling but while the city is in shambles, get money

before any quips about nyc still active, that UK drill cosplay died with pop smoke before it could take off. the best u can expect now is the OGs going on tour and scrape some money off nostalgia

Primarily through Westside Gunn hitler wears hermes series, he dubbed that Kay Slay intro, made it sound like Kay Slay really hosted the tape. Also had the Griselda brand clothing and the snake skin griselda nike shoe. Then he had a few features and cosigns, the one that put me onto Wsg was Skyzoo on that Luxury song. It was up from there. They started doing their first few shows out here in Atlanta at small venues getting mad love.

i hear that.

only difference is...

...four rap solo artists who were already established and each member had his own fan base...

...compared to three homies (i believe two of them are related) who have been cool with each other for decades and lived within the same area.

it was unsurprising to me to see slaughterhouse break up soon after their initial success.

Too many egos amongst group members + shady records affiliation equals successful first group project... and then a potential second project that remains unreleased.

If you have any talent then you get the right system to do it, you can keep showin up til people start remembering your faces. You gotta remember new york main stream is wack. They are counter culture to that plus they got a fan base thats mature with a little more bread than others. Creative covers dope beats they was dedicated to it.

There was a brother I believe from harlem who used to post them before anyone even knew who they were. Back when they rocked with Hus Kingpin.

I wonder what ever happened to that poster.

I could never get into Griselda simply because of how much sh*t they'd already released by the time I'd heard of them. I asked someone to put me on here once and this guy posted a long a*s list of sh*t and was like 'start here' and there was a list of like over 50 projects.

I was just thinking I'm waaaay too late for this and when I tried to go through it, it just sounded samey, nothing really stood out but I think people gravitated towards it because that type of sh*t is rare nowadays. There was a time when their music would've just got lost in the mix.
