Benny the Butcher Talks Misconception on Who Owns Griselda Records & Conway The Machine Leaving
After Conway The Machine announced in February he was no longer signed to Griselda, Benny The Butcher sat down with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1 to clarify the situation.
“I’m gonna break something down for you… We’re going to always be crew,” Benny told Ebro. “I don’t think Conway is still signed to Griselda, but that’s ‘signed’ to Griselda. He’s going to always be Griselda.”
In addition, Benny clarified that Conway isn't the actual owner, but his cousin Westside Gunn is.
“West is the sole owner of that,” Benny said of Griselda. “I think that’s one of the big misconceptions is that they own it together. But that’s West’s baby. Like Conway tell you if West own a building, he did the construction type of thing.”
Earlier this year, Ebro asked Conway to explain where he stood with the Griselda roster, and the God Don't Make Mistakes rapper claimed it wasn't worth all the attention.
“It ain’t nothing to even trip off, for real,” Conway said. “I don’t know what’s going on… everybody just doing so much man, just on the individual side that we don’t really kinda be having the time to really connect all the time and link. We don’t all live in the same city no more, we don’t really hang out and do shit no more, see each so all these conversations we don’t necessarily get to have all the time.”
