When it comes to some of the best and most consistent emcees in all of Hip-Hop right now and for the last almost half decade, the Griselda Records label and crew of Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine and Benny the Butcher, come to mind.
Building from the ground up, to signing a major label deal with Shady Records and a management deal with Roc Nation, Westside, Conway and Benny have shown their worth and impact to the culture by steady releasing dope project after dope project. Not to mention dope feature after dope feature as well. Leading up to their major label debut with Shady Records, W.W.C.D. (What Would Chine Gun Do), dropping this coming Black Friday, Nov. 29th. With Conway’s recent EP, Look What I Became… , being one of the more standout solo ones from any of the members.
The trio have garnered much deserved honor and praise from their peers and fellow emcees, ranging from Raekwon to Royce Da 5’9″, Busta Rhymes, Styles P, Black Thought, Jadakiss and Pusha T. As well as producers, The Alchemist and Pete Rock, to name just a few.
So it should be no surprise that Conway & Benny are the latest to be apart of Vevo’s latest new original live series, Ctrl. Both Vevo and the very talented duo (sans Westside, who was also on the track) debuting/premiering a day ago, the very energetic and flawlessly effortless, Ctrl Live Session, performance of one of the most standout tracks ever from Griselda, Tito’s Back. Which truly shows the very flawless and great complimentary energetic seamless chemistry that The Machine and the Butcher build on from one another. Like a veteran duo that has been at it together for years, each gleaming and glowing right off the presence of the other.
