The rise of Griselda Records — the collective founded by Westside Gunn, Benny the Butcher, and Conway The Machine — is a classic not-really-an-overnight-success-story. The New York artists have been grinding for years, but in the past year or so they’ve been inescapable for fans of the golden era of New York gangsta rap and beyond. Today, Conway is back with his new album From King To A GOD. Featured artists include DeJ Loaf, Mobb Deep’s Havoc, Method Man, Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn, and more.
“Typically, when I create an album,” Conway said in a press release, “I tend to focus on being the best rapper and having the best bars. With From King To A GOD, I wanted to show growth; how much I’ve grown as an artist and how much I’ve grown as a man. I wanted to showcase versatility and show people that I’m not a one trick pony. I feel like this album is not only arguably one of my best albums ever, but it is also the perfect appetizer to get my fans ready for my Shady Records debut God Don’t Make Mistakes.”
