Conway Recalls Humble Beginnings on New Song “Pawn Shop”
Conway is one busy man. The Shady Records signee recently dropped his More Steroids mixtape, a new project with DJ Green Lantern. Today (Oct. 25), the Buffalo, N.Y. MC teams up with Jonathan Hay for "Pawn Shop," a track off the forthcoming dark comedic hip-hop album, The Hoodlum Ball.
"Pawn Shop" is about the struggle of trying to make ends meet while pursing dreams.
"Dropped out of school, fuck alarm clocks/Every morning selling hard rocks, pawn Glocks/For when the drama pop, I seen my man take an armed shot/But the dude who shot him sleeping in a long box/Went to deuces in one of my armed pops?/I came a long way from sleeping on small cots," Conway raps.
The Hoodlum Ball is produced entirely by Jonathan Hay, RX66 and Mani Ajami plus guest features from The Game, Twista, Riff Raff, MC Eiht, Chino XL, Kxng Crooked and more. The LP is scheduled to be released in early December through the Smith and Hay record label.
The Reject 2 rapper recently delivered an impressive freestyle at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.
