Goddamn. It’s surely partly the nature of slowed down pandemic time, but it feels like an age since Conway the Machine announced his proper major label debut via Shady Records’ God Don’t Make Mistakes. It’s been delayed since last year – reportedly so Conway could continue to make tweaks to the tracklist and perfect his grand statement – and in the meantime the Griselda rapper has released multiple projects, most notably 2020’s From a King to a God and this year’s acclaimed La Maquina.
The wait is finally, it seems, almost over. The Buffalo mainstay has, at long last, shared the lead single for the project, produced by none other than The Alchemist. “Piano Love” is pure Conway, with the MC attacking the eerie piano loop with his characteristically blunt, clever bars: “We don’t play fair, drive-bys right in front of the daycare,” is just a taste of what’s in store.
Check it out below, and – with any luck, sheesh – look out for God Don’t MakeMistakes very soon.
