A natural-born leader, Westside – five feet & six inches (165 cm) height – didn’t begin recording music until Conway got shot on the face. Before stepping in the booth himself, he worked as his brother’s manager.

2016 marked Westside Gunn’s (and perhaps, Griselda Records’) foray into the mainstream music scene with the album FlyGod.

“Supreme Clientele” and “Flygod Is an Awesome God” are the full albums that he released in the subsequent years.
Meanwhile, Westside Gunn and his artist/cousin Benny The Butcher signed a management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation in 2019. Late-October that year, he dropped “Hitler Wears Hermes 7.”

In January 2020, Westside Gunn announced his new album “Pray For Paris.” A day after making the grand reveal, he and the Griselda artists performed “Dr. Birds” on Fallon.
Around February 2020, Westside declared that the Griselda crew had the greatest catalog in Hip-Hop history.
“Pray For Paris” arrived in April 2020. In the weeks leading up to its release, Westside recovered from COVID-19.
The head honcho of the Griselda Records is an extremely gifted artist. He is the mastermind behind the label’s merchandise, which is immensely popular among its fans.
From tour money, merch sales and streaming revenues, Westside Gunn continues to rake up his $10 million net worth.

True to his playboy persona in his musical output, Westside – for the most part – refuses to settle down.
His reluctance to find something meaningful in relationships is largely due to his fathering duties. Westside has a daughter named Pottie (born 2013), who appeared on the rapper’s song “Amherst Station.”
In 2019, Westside became a father for the second time. Speaking on the podcast “itsthereal” in fall that year, the “Pete Sake” wordsmith broke the baby news. During the very sit-down, he sang praises about his baby mama calling her a “better partner.”
