In August, a video surfaced of G-Unit's Lloyd Banksin the studio with Conway. While that was a sure indication of them working on new music together, no one knew when it would be released. However, today Griselda Records drops "Bullet Club" featuring Conway, Lloyd Banks and Benny. We hear that the song will end up on Griselda Records compilation album More Steroids and if it sounds anything like this record, be prepared for some gritty tunes that have been lacking on hip hop's spectrum.
The three rappers get together for a dark and grimy track produced by Daringer. With slick wordplay and tight flows over some lo-fi production, it sounds like it came straight out of a cassette tape in the 90's. While hip hop has evolved since it's inception, going through several phases and eras that have polarized an older and younger generation of hip hop, Conway, Banks and Benny are bringing that heat for anyone seeking some bars. It's a tough tune that sounds like a dark New York City alleyway late at night.
Conway's been having quite the year in 2017. Earlier in the year, it was revealed that himself and Westside Gunn penned a deal with Eminem's Shady Records. After listening to this track, it makes sense that someone with Conway's ability would be of interest to Em. A few months after the signing, he released his solo mixtape Reject On Steroids. So clearly, Conway's been putting that work in.
While Lloyd Banks has been relatively quiet for the past few months, that shouldn't say he hasn't made noise this year. Earlier in the year, he was dropping a new track every Friday for his #BlueFriday series. That was following up to his 2016 mixtape, Halloween Havoc 3: Four Days Of Fury.
It's great to hear all three rappers connect on a song. Now it's time to anticipate the release of More Steroids.
I raise bar
Flip the razor,
Leave your face with scars
Break into your place and all that money in your safe is ours
