Westside Gunn and Conway have been emerging as two of hip-hop’s most promising up-and-comers, releasing countless mixtapes and keeping that street sound alive. In fact, the Griselda records duo even managed to catch Eminem’s eye, landing themselves a record deal with Shady Records. Recently, Conway dropped off his latest mixtape More Steroids, which featured production from Griselda staples Alchemist and Daringer. Now, Westside Gunn has shared a few crucial details about Conway’s upcoming album The Goat, including a release date and several features. Gunn took to Instagram to hype the project, stating:
“This is wats gonna fuck UP EVERYTHING that thought it was the dopest shit of the YR. had to save the best for last CONWAY “GOAT” album is dropping this Month PROD by DARINGER & ALCHEMIST⛄️?? #GXFR#CLASSIC#ART#LEGEND it’s so much on here but I can say Raekwon on it, Styles P, Royce just to name a few I’m on it, Benny on it just straight #HIPHOP#BARS#XMAS2017#GRISELDARECORDS”
Later, Atlanta poet Keisha Plum confirmed that Conway’s album would be dropping on Christmas Day. From the sound of it, Conway’s latest looks to continue where his last drop left off, enlisting underrated heavyweights like Raekwon, Royce Da 5’9, Westside Gunn, Benny, and Styles P. If you’re into the Griselda sound, this one is shaping up to be Conway’s most focused release yet, and should make for some nice Christmas music. Conway’s built up quite a cult following, and fans seem optimistic about this album; many Redditors have made mention of collaborations with ScHoolboy Q and Anderson Paak, which may or may not appear on The Goat.
