Westside Gunn is preparing for the release of his major label debut through Shady Records, so it looks like it’s all love despite the shot he seemed to take at the label last month.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday (July 14), the Buffalo native revealed Who Made The Sunshine is already in the can and made sure to note it will be released through Eminem’s imprint alongside Griselda Records and Interscope.
“NOTHING in the HISTORY of @ShadyRecords sounds like ‘WHO MADE THE SUNSHINE’ absolutely NOTHING!!!” he wrote. “Y’all gonna say he did P4P (AOTY) then AwesomeGOD2 just for the Culture then his debut Major release that sounds like this YOUR WELCOME #FLYGOD #CULTURE #ART #BUFFALOKIDS. And YES the “WHO MADE THE SUNSHINE” ALBUM IS DONE and will be released thru GXFR/SHADY/INTERSCOPE.”

Gunn seemingly took a shot at Em’s label during the 2020 BET Awards on June 28, when he took to Twitter questioning whether Shady Records even knew Griselda had a nomination in the Best Group category.
“I wonder do @ShadyRecords know we’re nominated for a BET AWARD tonight,” he tweeted.

Who Made The Sunshine‘s announcement comes just over a week since the July 2 release of Gunn’s latest mixtape, Flygod Is An Awesome God 2. Features included fellow Griselda member Benny The Butcher as well as underground talents among the likes of Stove God Cook$ and Rome Streetz.
In April of this year, Gunn released his Pray For Paris LP after being inspired during his trip to Paris Fashion Week. The 13-track album featured appearances from Conway The Machine, Benny The Butcher, Freddie Gibbs, Roc Marciano, Joey Bada$$ and more. Revisit the project below.
