Alvin Lamar Worthy, known professionally as Westside Gunn, is an American rapper. He is the brother of fellow rapper Conway, with whom he forms the duo Hall N' Nash, deriving from the names of professional wrestlers Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. Worthy records for his own record label, Griselda Records, which he founded in 2014, as well as The Purist's Daupe! Records. In 2016, he released his first commercial mixtape, FLYGOD. On March 3, 2017, Griselda Records signed a deal with Eminem's Shady Records, a subsidiary of Interscope, making Westside Gunn and his brother Conway the first rappers from Buffalo to sign with a major label.
Shortly after signing with Shady Records, Westside released FLYGOD Is Good... All The Time, as a collaborative EP with producer Mr. Green.
Since signing with Eminem, Westside Gunn has collaborated with Busta Rhymes, Anderson Paak, Jadakiss, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, The Alchemist, and MF Doom, and has played at Coachella, Firefly and Governor's Ball. Ambrosia For Heads named 2018's Supreme Blientele one of the best albums of 2018.
