Conway The Machine's upcoming "From King To A God" features Lloyd Banks, Method Man, Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher & more.
Conway The Machine has been so prolific of late that it's honestly hard to keep track of his output. Today, however, he's made our lives a little easier by officially announcing his long-teased From King To A God, sharing the final tracklist, release date, and mission statement behind the album. Speaking with Pitchfork, Conway explained his desire to showcase his artistic growth, though not at the expense of his elite-tier bars.

"Typically, when I create an album, I tend to focus on being the best rapper and having the best bars," he reflects. "I wanted to showcase versatility and show people that I’m not a one trick pony. I feel like this album is not only arguably one of my best albums ever, but it is also the perfect appetizer to get my fans ready for my Shady Records debut God Don’t Make Mistakes."
The project features collaborations from the usual suspect, which is to say Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, Daringer, Beat Butcha. There are also set to be appearances from Lloyd Banks, Method Man, Havoc, Dej Loaf, Alchemist, Freddie Gibbs, Erick Sermon, and more.
