Conway The Machine says that he recorded five to six albums worth of material while working on his new album, Won’t He Do It. Conway discussed the making of the record during an interview with Rolling Stone published on Friday. He began by admitting that a swath of artists biting Griselda's style diminished his enthusiasm for hip-hop.
“Everybody trying to rap over the same type of beats we was rapping on. People was taking our cover art direction, our whole thing that made us us. It seemed it was getting watered down some,” he reflected. “I don’t even like them kind of beats no more. It was boring me. I fell back, but I got that feeling back again like the good old days at Daringer’s house.”

From there, he explained that he recorded “five to six albums worth of material” after going to Denver last summer. “I would lock myself in the studio down in Denver with my boy, Rocky,” he said. “Just out there having shrooms, and it was a good time. It’s just an unreal magical vibe down in Denver. [Denver] unlocked something inside of me, man. I feel alive.”
Won’t He Do It is Conway's first album since last year's God Don’t Make Mistakes, and his first post-Shady Records release. The project features Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, Fabolous, Juicy J, and more. For the production, Conway worked with Daringer, Khrysis, Justice League, and Juicy J. Rolling Stone wasn't the only outlet Conway spoke with ahead of the project's release. He also sat down with Ebro In The Morning, last week. During that interview, he opened up about the 2012 shooting that paralyzed the right side of his face and left him with Bell’s Palsy. "I just wanna inspire people with my story," he said during the discussion. Check out the title track for Conway's new album below.
