    I love Benny, okay with Conway, but I just can’t seem to get behind Gunn, man. His voice is so annoying to me and he’s very obviously the least lyrical of the bunch. Even 327 which is such a good song I feel like he brings it down and is hardly on beat. Can anyone tell me what the appeal is or even post some songs to prove me wrong?

    I can tolerate him for the first 15 seconds of Welfare by RMR but that's about it

    Same here honestly. Benny is the only one who I’m like “okay this guys good” but I don’t listen to Benny the butcher songs in my spare time, I’d rather just listen to actual 90s classics than the ghost of them

    Gunn is definitely the weak link but I like all three. The problem with Griselda is the sheer amount of music they release, their sound isn’t varied or experimental enough to carry like 20 albums and a thousand mixtapes every year.

    Gunn is arguably the most popular one too, if I’m not mistaken? Makes no sense to me

    also as someone who doesn’t listen to them regularly the amount of music they put out is annoying and overwhelming. It feels like every other week I’m saying to myself “jfc another one?”

    WSG compliments the track he done on the LOX's album quite nicely. Just on the hook I think but works well.

    Other than that, yeah, his voice grates after a few seconds.

    Gunn blew up first afaik, no idea how he pulled it off.

    I used to follow Griselda and listen to whatever they dropped, but eventually that s--- just kinda melded together and the more they dropped the more phoned in it sounded.

    Finally I can fully agree with you lol. I tried but I can't listen at all to Conway or wsg.
    Benny on the other side is good and listenable.

    I came for WPG slander, but I just misread the title.

    I don’t mind Conway. Like if he’s a feature on a song it’s like cool whatever, but if Gunn is on there I either skip his pet or don’t listen at all.

    Also I don't mean to say I dislike griselda, but I agree with Winter they oversaturated themselves without changing up their sound too much

    Conway is the best of the three imo
    Could just be nostalgia cause he was the first one I got into, but he sounds the most authentic and drops the least.
