Westside Gunn and Conway Team Up for “RIP Bobby”
After teaming up with Lloyd Banks on "Bullet Club," Conway is back with a new song, this time linking up with Westside Gunn on the Alchemist and Daringer-produced track "RIP Bobby." The song is a tribute to Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, the professional wrestler who passed away at 72 due to throat cancer yesterday.
The song opens up with a soulful sample before Westside Gunn and Conway go back-and-forth with their bars. "Fashion Week seats, I could've tripped a bitch/Whip the fish, leave the kitchen, gave my wrist a kiss/Phone click and shit, I got all of these links to hit/Griselda, bitch, you see we gettin' rich," the two rap on the track.
"RIP Bobby" then switches up the beat midway, turning into a horn-driven instrumental. "My respect not only demanded, it's required/You fuckin' with a $2000 sneak-buyer/Such and such and them was winning, Griselda leaped by 'em," raps Conway.
Conway wasn't the only one to drop new music recently. In August, Westside Gunn teamed up with Mach Hommy for the song "Macho On Coke." Gunn also revealed he would be working with MF DOOM on a collaborative album produced entirely by Alchemist and Daringer.
“It’s official WESTSIDEDOOM is here prod by ALCHEMIST & DARINGER this is one of the illest projects I’ve ever heard," wrote Gunn on IG. "When u think ART, this is it the RAWEST, FLYEST, GRIMIEST shit you’ve ever heard IN YA LIFE wats dope than FLYGOD & DOOM spread the gospel the day is soon cometh."
