Conway The Machine Cashes Out More Than “Quarters” On New Single
The Machine graces fans with a quick but potent verse over surprisingly peppy production that still fits his artistic cue hole.
Ahead of a host of new albums dropping soon, whether it’s his solo effort Won’t He Do It or his collaborative project with 38 Spesh, Conway The Machine is letting fans know early that he’s bound to meet his high quality standards. Moreover, he just released the single “Quarters,” which actually takes a slightly different approach to his usual production. The Khrysis-produced beat involves some trademarks: engaging and crisp boom-bap drums, ghostly tones, occasional chimes, and a funky lead melody. However, the buzzy staccato bass hits actually give this track a pretty unorthodox sonic pallet for Conway’s typical fare.
Lyrically, the amicably departed Griselda alum delivers a quick but impressive verse. His coke rap subject matter (however common, tried, or true) is still brought to life by lines like “Water-whipped the ounces, it’s residue in that coffee pot.” Of course, staying in that lane for the whole verse doesn’t leave much room for dynamics or a change in pace. Instead, where this track succeeds is in keeping you engaged in his layered, multi-syllabic, and expertly flowed rhymes from beginning to end. As a surprise, the track’s music video also includes the non-streaming track “Brucifix” with Westside Gunn.
Conway The Machine’s “Quarters”
Switching to Conway The Machine’s next moves, he just released a short collab tape with Drumwork signee Jae Skeese. Furthermore, as far as his upcoming team-up with 38 Spesh, it should make for a concise and gripping encounter. “Me and Conway got an album,” Spesh revealed to Bootleg Kev. “The people gotta get ready for that. It’s done, I’m gonna follow up after Gunsmoke [his recently released album] with that. The name of that album is called Special Machinery. Something serious, Special Machinery, we on there getting busy and shit, you know what I’m saying. I produced the whole joint, me and my guy Jimmy Dukes. He’s a producer from out of Buffalo, we produced the whole joint.” On that promising note, check out standout bars from “Quarters” below. Also, you can find the track on your preferred streaming service, and as always, return to HNHH for the latest on Conway The Machine.
B***hes be sayin’, “Oh, you definitely changed,
Callin’ me b***h in every message, you don’t text me the same, n***a” (Hahaha)
Machine, b***h, I’m a threat in the game
Tape that I did with Alchemist, I was just testin’ my aim, n***a (I’m on y’all a**)
