JAY-Z Signs Benny the Butcher and Westside Gunn to Roc Nation
Roc Nation x Griselda.
Looks like Benny the Butcher and Westside Gunn have now signed with JAY-Z to Roc Nation.
The rappers posted what appeared to be an announcement on Instagram Tuesday (August 6), sharing a photo with HOV. The group of artists had bottles of champagne and glasses in hand, so it's clear a celebration was taking place.
Westside captioned his photo, "We just some BUFFALO KIDS that had a dream."

Benny and Westside had inked a deal with Shady Records a few years ago, but now the Griselda Records crew is on Hov's side.

The details surrounding the deal are unclear.
In June, Benny released his project, The Plugs I Met, which boasted features from Black Thought, Jadakiss, and Pusha T.
