Westside Gunn is standing on the potential album cover for the new LP Hitler Wears Hermes 11. On Saturday (May 27), the 40-year-old Griselda member uploaded an image of presumed cocaine packages with Nazi symbols and the word “Hitler” stamped on a parcel. Fans responded negatively to the artwork, with one fan assuming that Gunn, legal name Alvin Worthy, would soon collaborate with Kanye West.
Many of Gunn’s supporters and critics went on to argue over the image, which the rapper ultimately responded to on Sunday (May 28). He doubled down on the artwork choice, while also calling responders “bums.”
He also went on to troll some followers, posting proof of him donating to a GoFundMe for multiple Buffalo residents.
HWH 11 potentially marks the end of Gunn’s retirement, as he previously shared in February that the tenth installment of the series would be his last.
“A lot of people in this game, they come and go. For me to be able to say I did it 10 times is legendary in itself. That’s just [to] let you know that I’ve been putting in work for a decade, and a lot [of] people can’t say that,” he told High Times.
“Even after a decade, I’m just now starting to get certain looks after 10 years of working. That just lets you know you just gotta work hard, stay consistent and don’t give up ‘cause there’s always another level,” he added. “I carved my own lane, so I’m already happy. I don’t care if I don’t get no bigger than what I am now, for what I’ve done in these 10 years, I done carved my own lane, I did it my own way and I’m super happy.”
