Hot off the heels of fellow Griselda member Westside Gunn’s release of Pray for Paris, Conway is right back at it alongside Big Ghost with a new project titled No One Mourns The Wicked. Clocking in at seven songs and two interludes, the duo go for the jugular with that signature gutter sound.
With the release of their collaborative album Lulu, Conway and Alchemist waste little time dropping a video for “Calvin” directed by Jason Goldwatch.
“I feel like the culture needed it, the streets needed it, people wanted to hear it,” Conway said about the project. “I actually have three projects coming out. After we finish tearing the streets up with the Lulu, I’m planning to release From King to a God sometime in April. Then I have God Don’t Make Mistakes being released on Shady Records sometime in the near future as well. I’ve got a lot of things on my plate that I’m just waiting to just dish out.”
With Conway and Alchemists’ Lulu dropping on March 30, the emcee and producer tandem team up with TDE’s SchoolBoy Q for “Shoot Sideways” off the project. Although Q is only here for the hook, it’s a vicious slow burner that preps you for what’s to come.

The features are all true MCs. The production is straight-up hip hop. Over here, bars still matter!”
