Conway - G.O.A.T. (2017)


One of my favorite rappers in recent memory. Conway is from Buffalo, NY, and his sound is an update of the eerie nihilism and horror-soundtrack-worthy beats of 90s NYC gangsta rap, a style that I've always been a sucker for. That album cover kinda had me expecting some fashionably lo-fi, Death Grips-worshipping internet-core, but it's nothing like that at all. Free download via Datpiff.

Track listing:
1. G.O.A.T.
2. Trump
3. Th3rd (feat. Raekwon)
4. Die on Xmas (feat. Benny)
5. Rodney Little (feat. Prodigy)
6. XXXtras
7. Bishop Shot Steel
8. Mandatory (feat. Royce 5'9)
9. Arabian Sam's (feat. Styles P)
10. Bullet Klub (feat. Lloyd Banks & Benny)

I sent the goons out lookin' for you

  3. Dam this is one of the best rap jointz I've heard in some time....takes me back to that ole early 90s Detroit acid-rap, when Esham, Natas & Dice were fucking kingz - Reel Life!!! Don't get no better (I still got most of that shit on the original Reel Life releases too!! I can rip anything you don't have/can't find...)
    and laced with some early Spice 1 ultra-violence ala 'Amerikkka's Nightmare'
    'I sent the goons out lookin for you' - possibly one of the best chorus lines ever
    Thx immensely for this bro!
    hey looks like I missed the link to a late 90s Memphis underground blog?!
    Dam if it still exists I would love to check it out...Prophet Posse!

    Dice's 1995 dark masterpiece 'Thaneighborhoodshittalka' you are in for a treat!

  5. The Hour is indeed Late,
    And Mother Nature is furious.
    The Horsemen mount up. Its Payback Time.
    Str8 out tha evil eastside of Detroit - Acid-Rap!
    Esham is the evil genius behind it all, he and his brother Dead Boy started Reel Life Productions and started their own styles: Tha Wicket Shit, Suicidalism & Acid-Rap!
    Esham's side group was Natas and there were many other wicket homiez,
    the best being Dice, also from Detroit, but he eventually had a falling out with Reel Life...
    Like anything real and independent, Reel Life is no more and the original releases are rare and expensive...so lets light this motherfucker Up!!!
