This marks Conway’s second project in December, as he kicked off the month with CONDUCTOR MACHINE which finds Westside Gunn’s brother Conductor Williams handling production duties.

“I already been a fan of Conductor and we done some stuff for Westside Gunn albums and projects and shit like that, so it was easy,” Machine explained

The Buffalo native also said that the EP came about through his manager Chad Kemp, who also runs Conway’s label Drumwork Music Group.

“He connected all the dots with all that,” Conway said of Kemp.

Conway The Machine appreciation for Conductor Williams’ work definitely predates this EP, though. In an interview, he shared that he had actually DMed Drake to share his reaction to the superstar’s work with Williams on the song “8AM In Charlotte.”

“Shout out to Conductor, the beat was crazy,” he told Acton Entertainment. “I think I posted a DM — I DMed them or something, with the mind blown emojis. Like, ‘Bro, it’s not even — it’s starting to not even be fair no more.’ But nah, dog, that shit was fire.

Conway has more projects on the way. In October, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League producer Erik “Rook” Ortiz told HipHopDX that he and his partner Kevin “Colione” Crowe are preparing a project for the Griselda MC.

He made it clear that it will arrive after Conway’s Won’t He Do It 2, a planned sequel to the rapper’s project from this past May.
