Back in June, Conway the Machine formally introduced his upcoming studio album God Don’t Make Mistakes by sharing its Eminem-assisted lead single, “Bang.” Now, the East Coast lyricist is revealing plans for the aforementioned LP’s “prelude project,” Look What I Became…, and liberating one of that effort’s standout selections to support and promote it. Known as “Tito’s Back,” Conway’s latest record finds him reconnecting with his Griselda cohorts Westside Gunn and Benny the Butcher over signature Daringer production. Besides the other three artists credited on “Tito’s Back,” the Westside Gunn-executive-produced Look What I Became… will also feature contributions from Dave East, The Alchemist, Jim Jones, DJ Muggs and Statik Selektah.
“Look What I Became… is an appetizer before God Don’t Make Mistakes. I’m just staying on fire and keeping the streets feed and satisfied. I’m painting pictures,” Conway shares via an official statement, breaking down his current plans and his forthcoming full-length. “I came from the bottom, from nothing, and now I’m on a major label and making music with Eminem. This project is a blueprint of that.”
“‘Tito’s Back’ is one of my favorites on the album,” Conway adds, opening up his latest track. “It’s always dope to have the original four members (including Daringer) of Griselda all in the same room making fire. Look What I Became… is an incredible project and body of work and one of my favorite’s I’ve recorded thus far. I trust Westside’s vision and process to bring everything together how I want to be presented. A nugget ain’t a nugget until it’s dipped in sauce. His flavor puts it over the top.”
