Sharing is caring!

While fans anxiously await the upcoming release of his studio album God Don’t Make Mistakes, Conway The Machine stopped by Complex to talk about the project and to lift a corner of the veil on the events that have marked his career. ‘last year.

Naturally, during the session Conway The Machine’s participation in Kanye West’s Grammy-nominated album Donda was brought up. Conway delivered a lot of pearls, from how the connection with Ye came about to the strict rules that were enforced during Donda’s sessions.

Invited to what could be described as a “musical residency”

According to the rapper’s words, Griselda was giving a show in Los Angeles when <a href = “ -kardashian / BKanye contacted the team and invited them to one of their shows the following Sunday. They ended up in the artists’ area, where they quickly hit it off. ”  Kanye, you know how he is. It’s kind of a spur of the moment, and he was like, ‘Yo, man. We should go to Cabo right away and work on some music. “ Conway reveals.”  Obviously me and Benny. , we have a few stipulations that prevent us from leaving the country so freely, so we ended up going to the ranch in Wyoming. ”

Once Conway got to the ranch, however, he quickly found himself out of his element during Donda’s sessions. At Ye’s studio, drugs, alcohol, and phones were prohibited, regulations that made studio sessions ”  different  ” to Conway The Machine. “  At first it was a little different for me because I didn’t really grow up in the church world,” the La Maquina rapper explained “  And I’m used to studio sessions where there are friends around. There are niggas that smoke, niggas that drink. There are women here. And got niggas smoking up there, and rolling dice. ” 

The disturbing contrast 

“  And here we don’t smoke, we don’t drink, we don’t do anything,” says Conway. ”  You can’t even have your fucking cell phone in that motherfucker.” It was a little weird at first. Not weird, just different the first two days. But, you know, it was nothing to me. At the end of the day, I was just happy and blessed to be welcomed into this man’s atmosphere. “
