Album Review: "La Maquina" by Conway The Machine (8/10)

Conway The Machine

La Maquina

Producers: Various

“They say West is the brains behind it and Benny is the star; well, let’s not act like Machine is not the silliest with the bars.” (an excerpt from “6:30 Tip Off”) This bar refers to Conway’s wildly successful Griselda rap crew; the click he’s been down with since 2012. La Maquina is Conway’s second studio album and he sounds young and hungry more than ever; even after releasing a handful of collaborative albums and mixtapes, including collaborative mixtapes. From top to bottom, La Maquina hits different, and is definitely a must listen for those who appreciate emceeing with dope production.
