Westside Gunn is certainly one of the most established rappers in the Hip-Hip world. Westside Gunn is also no stranger to controversy as he made headlines for associating with Marylin Manson. Now it seems the rapper has been hit with copyright strikes.
Aside from being a hardcore pro wrestling fan, Westside Gunn is also known to toot his own horn, especially when it comes to his fashion game. Before he made a name for himself working with Eminem and collaborating with Kanye West, Gunn called himself “Flygod.”
However, as many fans know, Westside Gunn is a massive pro wrestling fan. WWE has filed several YouTube copyright strikes against Griselda Records for some of their singles. For those who don’t know, Griselda Records is led by Westside Gunn.
The official Griselda Records Instagram account took to their stories and revealed that WWE fired copyright strikes against them on YouTube, which came as a shock to them.
“Retroactive copyright claims why?? @WWE”
The songs removed for copyright claims are Claiborne Kick, The Hurt Business, French Toast, and Allah Sent Me. These songs also include snippets of WWE audio and interviews.
In related news, Greg Hamilton had threatened to file a lawsuit against Westside Gunn last year. It is likely he was fired by WWE for this reason as well. Gunn has yet to comment on the copyright strikes but it is likely he will do soon enough.
