It’s Conway’s time to reign over the game. Having already established himself as one of the best lyricists, he’s about to plant his flag even deeper into the soil. Today, The Machine has officially unveiled the album artwork and release date for his upcoming album with producer Big Ghost LTD, taking to Instagram to lift the curtain and reveal his second release of the year — so far.

In his own announcement post, Big Ghost LTD penned some major praise for his collaborator — and justifiably so. “Been cookin up something on the low,” he begins. “Little secret project witta certain top of the food chain artist/upper echelon lyricist thats been a major part of a movement that not only took over the entire underground hip hop scene but got the attention of the majors n has been influencing the culture in the most organic n uncompromising ways possible ever since.”
He continues, making it clear that anyone ever caught sleeping on the Griselda movement isn’t immune to an I-told-you-so. “Every snoozy ass media entity n music journalist who slept on em is now a day one supporter. Your kids most likely listen to em. Your parents might listen to em. The brand is expanding into other markets n demographics.”
While the pair have yet to unveil the tracklist, Conway previously provided a screenshot of some unreleased files, with song titles like “Family Secrets,” “Dead Flowers,” “Icon,” “Sicarios,” and “S.D.I.N,” and four more blocked-out additions. Look for the upcoming album to land on May 15th (more details are set to come this week), paving the way for Conway’s highly-anticipated Shady Records debut God Don’t Make Mistakes.
