In Hip Hop by Nick Russell

Fresh heat from three names from veteran LA rapper MC Eight who links up with Conway the Machine on this head nodder produced by Ferhan C. As the two drop their heavy duty bars DJ Premier provides some cold cuts. Speaking on the track, MC Eiht said “I’ve always had a strong connection with the east coast and its artists.  Premier and I have such a great and natural relationship.  I appreciate that I can always hit Preem to chop it up, get a beat or a mix. I have been following the Griselda movement for a while now and Conway has always had my ear. I reached out to him for “Honcho” and it was automatic.”

This is set to appear on Eiht’s forthcoming album, Lessons, out Sept. 18. The album features collaborations with DJ Premier, Conway The Machine, Dave East, Havoc, Talib Kweli, B-Real and Kurupt among others.
