Conway's "The GOAT" looks stacked with lyricists.
Anyone lamenting the so-called death of "real hip-hop" clearly hasn't listened to Conway. The gritty brother of Westside Gunn has been putting out a steady stream of raw music for a minute now, including the consistently hard Steroids series. Yesterday evening, the Griselda / Shady signee took to Instagram to reveal the tracklist for his upcoming mixtape The GOAT, which features a controversial portrait of Osama Bin Laden as the album cover. And while that might make you feel some type of way, the guest appearances on this one are likely to make you feel the opposite.
Conway's The GOAT features a posthumous verse from Prodigy, Royce Da 5'9", Benny, Styles P, Lloyd Banks, and Raekwon. If that's not a roster of some of the game's most underrated lyricists, I don't know what is. In regards to the project, Conway had this to say:
"This THURS the wait is OVER!!!!!! GXFR presents.... CONWAY "The GOAT" here's also the track list for this Masterpiece, this is straight ð¥ð¥ unfukkwitable shit, Xmas coming a lil early, this is for the CULTURE, this is wat HIP HOP sounds like, raw gritty story telling with some of the dopest lyricist of all time"
While original reports suggested the tape would be dropping on Christmas, Westside Gunn has confirmed that Conway would be releasing the project tomorrow. Even better, The GOAT's production will be helmed by longtime collaborators Daringer and The Alchemist. Check out the album artwork and tracklist below, and stay tuned for Conway's latest, coming soon.
