Who is Griselda Records? Griselda was an independent record label during its early years, with the artists selling physical copies of their music online in a limited release. The label’s popularity was so intense that releases would typically sell out in a few minutes despite often cryptic sales information. In 2017, Griselda signed a distribution deal with Shady Records for artists Westside Gunn and Conway. In 2019, Griselda signed a management deal with Roc Nation.
