Conway The Machine has easily been one of the game's most consistent emcees, and his run hasn't even reached its apex yet. Consider that he's still got a pair of projects on the way -- at a minimum -- with From King To A God and his Shady Records debut God Don't Make Mistakes on the way. Today, Conway came through to drop off a new single from the former, which happens to be one of the hardest tracks we've heard in a minute. What else do you expect when you pair Conway The Machine with Method Man, who boasts one of the sharpest flows in the Wu-Tang collective.
Their first collaboration "Lemons" is exactly what you'd hope for, with both emcees taking to a grimy and twisted banger. Over spooky pianos and wailing organ samples, Conway saunters through the track completely unfazed by the violence; you can all but smell the gunsmoke through the speakers. Method Man matches The Machine's stride with little effort, locking into a razor-focused flow-scheme and carrying that momentum through his entire verse. "Just leave it then, like the bouncer won't let your people in, people said they want that old Meth -- well this the prequel then," he spits. Check out "Lemon" now, and sound off -- is this one of the year's best collaborations so far?
Look, play my position, in the kitchen, I'm workin'
Whip it, bagging halfâ in fifties, hitâ the strip and I serve it
If it's an issue, trust, I'm comin' to get with you in person
With the extendo, throwin' at you til I flip the suburban
All my businesses flourish, I'm on my way to my yacht
I put a six on the dock like Julius Erving
