Griselda’s Conway The Machine, has been hard at work finishing up his new album “From King to a God“, but as his people around the country are taking to the streets to protest the killing of George Floyd and all other black people killed by the police, the Buffalo rapper has something to say
“Enough is enough!”
Conway took to Instagram this weekend and said this:
Fed up with the senseless deaths of Amaud Abrey, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and so many others, Conway stepped in the studio and recorded a track to reflect the times over Beat Butcha-production called “Front Lines.”
“In the middle of the covid pandemic, I’ve been quarantined finishing up FKTG. The Amaud situation and Breonna situation and now George Floyd has brought me so much pain and anger because I’m a black man: a father a brother, I have 2 sons” Conway told to Complex. “I wanted to give you the mindset from the protester’s point of view and I was able to paint that picture perfectly over this Beat Butcha production.”
On the track Conway talks about how Hip-Hop is watered down and fans support artist who openly work with the police, how black people are racially profiled and how black people are no longer are allowing cops to kill us on camera and we do nothing in return.
“Cops killing black people on camera and don’t get charged. We aint taking no more we ain’t just pressing record, can’t watch you kill my brother you gone have to kill us all”.
