Conway the Machine is an American rapper. He was born in 1982, in Buffalo, New York. His real name is Demond Price. In 2012, he was shot in the back of his head, but survived. Since then, he has been a very popular rapper. A few years later, he was signed with Eminem’s Shady Records. This brought him to the attention of major labels.
Although he was a famous rapper, Conway Gunn had a rough life. He spent a lot of time in jail. But he still managed to keep his music career going. Even after his release from prison, he worked with local producers and wrote music. He also had to deal with felony charges. However, he was able to make his comeback by producing some local hits.
Before he started rapping, he was a criminal who lived on the East Side of Buffalo, New York. The man was not known for his looks, but his menacing delivery was something that fans of hip-hop could relate to. After he got released from jail, he made his debut with a few mixtapes. One of them was The Devil’s Reject. It was followed by his more edgy and hard-hitting LP, G.O.A.T. (Grimiest of All Time). It featured verses from Styles P, Raekwon, and Lloyd Banks.
He has a great discography, including music for street politics, music that’s more for his own enjoyment, and mixtapes with DJ Green Lantern and Killa Angel. As a result of his success, Conway was able to make a great deal of money. Many of his earnings came from his merchandise and tours. In 2019, he earned around $3 million. During that same year, he met Prodigy of Mobb Deep, who invited him to a recording session in April. During the session, Conway met a young rapper, Jae Skeese, who would become the first signing to his new label.
Griselda Records is a rap collective founded by Conway and his half-brother, Westside Gunn. They have also collaborated with other artists such as Benny the Butcher. Together, they have recorded two collaborative EPs through Daupe! and released another EP, Griselda Ghost, in 2016.
After his release from prison, Conway began to take his music career seriously. He toured and released music despite his illness. He had a contract with Griselda and Shady Records, but eventually ended it. During this period, he was a contractual free agent, and he plans to resign with the former label. While he does not have a complete discography, his early work includes several mixtapes and a song called “God Don’t Make Mistakes,” which was a hit.
Currently, he is in the process of developing a Drumwork Music Group, as well as a record label. Conway has a very large social media presence and has a strong fan base. He also has a wife, a half-sister, and a brother. Some of the sources of his income include tour concerts, merchandise sales, and album sales.
