Conway The Machine
Conway The Machine released his Shady Records debut solo album titled, God Don’t Make Mistakes, on February 25th, 2022. God Don’t Make Mistakes is comprised of twelve songs, nine featuring collaborations with Benny The Butcher, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, T.I., Novel, Jill Scott, Keisha Plum, Annette Price, and Westside Gunn. So far he’s released John Woo Flick ft. Westside Gunn and Benny The Butcher, Tear Gas ft. Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, and Stressed as singles.
His first mixtape, PhysiKal Therapy, was released in 2014 through Griselda Records and has a total of 11 mixtapes all together, with his most recent one, Greetings Earthlings, which he dropped a few days before the unveiling of God Don’t Make Mistakes. The mixtape showcases Conway rapping over many different Artists’ beats, including Kanye West’s Jail, Seeing Green by Nicki Minaj, Baby Keem’s Family Ties, and many more. Conway’s first full-length solo studio album, From King To A God, dropped in September of 2020 also through Griselda Records and his own label, Drumwork Music Group.
Griselda Records is a label founded by Conway the Machine, Westside Gunn, and Haitian-American Rapper, Mach-Hommy. They had a deal inked with Shady Records from 2017 to 2020. Even though Conway the Machine just released his solo album through Shady Records earlier this year, he is now a free agent.
Stressed, featuring American orator, Wallow267, is Conway’s second single off God Don’t Make Mistakes. Both the song and video share a focus on Mental Health Awareness as it shows footage of Conway in a hospital bed after he had been almost fatally wounded by several gunshots after leaving a club in Atlanta one night. Conway overcame his near death experience and intense injuries, which left him with Bells Palsy along with an immense toll on his Mental Health, by working through it with his Music.
The lyrics focus on his Life story and getting through depression, especially when people can have such disregard and ignorance for that state of mind and dark Life situations because of their own selfish actions and attitudes while always asking for things, wanting something, or having some sort of agenda because of his success. Check out the powerful Music video above!
After finishing a short European run on his Love Will Get You Killed Tour, Conway is set to play Coachella in Indio, CA April 17th and April 24th with Griselda. He has several Canadian tour dates following suit, which you can check out below!
