Conway The Machine feat. Dave East, Jim Jones & El Camino – “Vino D” [Video]

His meteoric ascension aside, it’s miraculous that Conway is even still alive, much less the new face of Eminem’s Shady Records.  After suffering a bullet to the back of the head in 2012, the gnarly incident changed the technical way he rhymed, prompting him to adopt an off balance, but commanding and exacting flow, which Conway employs to depict the autobiographical world he expertly raps about and lives in—and as he knows, the consequences of the game are brutal.

Griselda’s (Conway The Machine, Benny The Butcher & Westside Gunn) rise, both collectively and individually is palpable.  From their inauspicious Buffalo roots, to signing with Eminem and Shady Records, the Griselda juggernaut has created a real and sustaining moment.  That movement is unified, authentic, raw, unfiltered, vivid and raw.  And there is no disputing that a real street ethos exists; one that has taken the music industry by storm.

Over the three volumes of his Everybody Is F.O.O.D. franchise, Conway’s credo has been you’ve got to eat what you kill and that’s how you get to where you’re going.  Nothing personal, nothing friendly and no handshakes.  Cold and calculated; that’s The Machine.

While we await Griselda to unleash their forthcoming group project for Shady Records (What Would Chine Gun Do which will be released in September) and Conway’s solo project for Shady Records (God Don’t Make Mistakes, which will be released in October and features the lead-single “Bang!” featuring Eminem), Conway recently announced his prelude project, Look What I Became…, which will be released by Griselda Records and is executive produced by Westside Gunn.  To formally announce the project, Conway grabbed his Griselda brothers to join him on the projects lead-single, “Tito’s Back,” and today he returns with “Vino D” featuring Dave East, Jim Jones and El Camino.  “Vino D” was exclusively premiered by Hypebeast. 

“Westside Gunn actually came up with the title for the track.  Vino D was one of my homies that lost his life, so we wanted to celebrate him and do something ill in his memory” Conway commented to Hypebeast.  “It’s dope to collaborate with two of my homies in Capo and Dave East, and they also happen to be two of my favorite rappers.  The homie JR Swiftz sent me the beat and it was insane and my lil bro El Camino laid a crazy hook for it; that gives it a summertime in the hood feel.  Look What I Became… is a gift to all my day one fans and also my new fans to introduce them to this Griselda shit; and get them ready for the Shady debut God Don’t Make Mistakes.”

Look What I Became… will be released on 9-13-19 and features guest appearances and production from Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn, Dave East, Jim Jones, Alchemist, Statik Selektah, DJ Muggs and Daringer.

The visual, which is directed by Omar Jones, sees Maxo and Megan paying homage to rapper Flavor Flav’s reality television show, “Flavor Of Love”as they look to find their respective love interests.

Maxo also announces European headlining dates for the “Brandon Banks Over C’s Tour” for December this year.

Brandon Banks was led by singles, including “Meet Again,” listed by Esquire, Billboard, and Vulture as one of 2019’s best songs so far and boasts a video directed by Shomi Patwary. The album also includes “Still” and “She Live,” featuring fellow Houston emcee Megan Thee Stallion.

The culmination of a journey from struggle to triumph, Brandon Banks brings listeners back into the world of Maxo Kream–a world that contrasts the grim realities of poverty with the luxurious life of a successful rapper. Born Emekwanem Ogugua Biosah Jr., Maxo grew up idolizing his father who spent much of Maxo’s youth in-and-out of prison–in his illegal enterprise, his father used the alias Brandon Banks. The album finds Maxo grappling with his newfound fame–as a budding star, Maxo has no need to return to his previous life, but he is still very attached to friends and family in the street, who he is not quite able to lift out of their circumstances. Also included on the album are skits and adlibs from Maxo’s father himself, empowering words of wisdom to his son.
