Conway The Machine joins the protest with new single “Front Lines”

  /  06.01.2020


Hip hop has become the largest voice in the midst of the turmoil that’s currently taking the United States by storm. Many of us have taken to the streets to fight back against the police and the government in the wake of George Floyd’s death. As such, artists have begun providing a soundtrack to the movement, including D Smoke, Juelz Santana, and more. Today sees an addition from Griselda’s own Conway The Machine titled “Front Lines,” which shows the Buffalo emcee getting to the matter at hand over cold, creeping production from British producer Beat Butcha:

“Can’t watch you kill my brother, you gon’ have to kill us all, just ‘cause he from the ghetto, that don’t mean he sellin’ crack/

He drivin’ home from work, you pull him over ‘cause he black, think he gangbangin’ ‘cause he got dreads and a few tats/

He reach for his ID, you think he reachin’ for a strap, he get out, put his hands up, and he still gettin’ clapped/

But if he try to run, you just gon’ shoot him in his back, what if it was my son? I wonder how I’m gon’ react, I bet I’m finna run up in this precinct with this MAC…/”

Conway has also been vocal about Floyd’s passing over the past week, making his opinion on domestic terrorism very clear via social media:

“This is America … another racist white cop ****** this man broad daylight, on camera! See these white terrorists don’t wear the white hoods with holes cut out anymore, they’re in police uniforms, they dress like judges and politicians and so on… enough is enough!!”
