Coming through with an abundance of attitude and plenty of crackle on the beat, Conway The Machine drops his latest video for John Woo Flick featuring his Griselda crew members Benny the Butcher and Westside Gunn. John Woo Flick is part of his brand new album God Don’t Make Mistakes due for release on February 25th 2022.
Going back to 2017 when Conway was first signed to Eminem’s Shady Records, the resemblance in his throwback beat and in the stories that he tells are uncanny, including everything from guns, violence, hustle and struggle within the streets of New York and his time spent in jail.
Conway lays down a consistent and hard beat in John Woo Flick that encompasses everything we recognise about American gangster rap. The track distils a no-fuss type of beat, focusing on the self establishing and dark truths in his story-telling and less centred on the dips and dives of typical modern-day rap melodies. Conway delivers a back to basics approach in his rapping style on John Woo Flick, making the beat incredibly familiar and so nostalgic. He came through once again reminding us of where American rap and gangster culture all began.
