Conway comes through with his latest album titled Everybody Is F.O.O.D 2. Griselda Records acts Westside Gunn and Conway The Machine have become underground favorites in a few short years with their gritty throwback style of boom-bap. The Buffalo, New York rappers inked a deal with Eminem’s Shady Records and announced the signing with a new track featuring their new label boss on the intro.
“The style and energy of Griselda Records, Gunn and Conway are infectious,” Marshall Mathers said in a press release. “We can’t wait to put them on the platform they have earned and deserve.”
In the early 2000s, Conway earned a rep as one of Buffalo’s best and was managed by Westside, who is also his brother.
Conway survived a 2012 shooting where he suffered damage to his face and developed Bell’s Palsy, but still kept recording and has released a series of mixtapes and side projects. With Westside, the pair forms the duo Hall n’ Nash, an homage to the WCW tag team wrestlers, Scott Hall and Kevin nash.
“We’re bringing a new sound to the game, but it’s also reminiscent of the grimey 90s,” Westside said in a statement. “Art is in everything we do…it’s the essence. We’re fusing boom-bap/dark sounds with the hipster cool kid lifestyle. A new lane is being carved.”
