Earlier this year, Westside Gunn dropped a short teaser for the film CONFLICTED. The project is the first full-length feature film under the rapper’s Griselda Films imprint, of which fellow Griselda Records group member Benny The Butcher receives executive producer credits. To the joy of hardcore Griselda fans worldwide, the group recently unveiled a brand new clip of the movie, featuring the likes of Duece King, J Holiday and Michael Rapaport, alongside Gunn and Benny.
An introspective look at daily life in Buffalo, New York, the film tells the tale of a young man caught up in the struggle of choosing between the street hustle life he left behind before being locked up against the temptation to distance himself from the world that helped raise him.
Westside Gunn expressed excitement for the film, taking to Instagram saying:
“GRISELDA & CONFLICTED shows u Buffalo…. we’re taking it back to when ppl stole your DVDs , I’ve literally watched this movie Everyday since it’s completion..the story, the acting, the shots everything is A1, I promise u you will watch this 50x like any other classic in the streets I’m so Happy and Proud of everybody who participated in the making of this Film, When this Drop everything changing, What GRISELDA did for Music will be the same way for Film it’s All about the ART… WELCOME TO BUFFALO”
