Termanology & Conway Are Termanator And The Machine (Video)
Termanology has paid more than enough dues over the last two decades. Today, the Massachusetts MC who has divided his years in New York is one of the most prolific voices in the independent scene. “Term Brady” has done tracks with legendary producers like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Large Professor, and Q-Tip, as well as shared the mic with everyone from the late Prodigy to Busta Rhymes. He has even done full collaborative albums with established names like Statik Selektah, M.O.P.’s Lil Fame, and La Coka Nostra’s Slaine.
When this Murder Mass MC has good synergy with another rapper, he tends to invite them to get down on each project he does. He has recorded multiple dope songs with Chris Rivers, Inspectah Deck, Bun B, and Conway The Machine throughout his career. So, this new single and video “Terminator & The Machine” is just the latest collaboration between the Griselda and ST. camps. But it is the first time ‘Ology and The Reject have rapped over a Daringer beat together, and the result is a tense, grimy street hymn.
The Machine launches this verbal assault and spits lyrical barbs like: “Look, the flow’s so raw you could snort this / Of course it’s / Conway, it’s Porsches / In the driveway of my fortress / No, you can’t afford this / All my enemies turned into corpses / Hollow tips burning like torches / Broke his jaw with the impact of a horse kick / Had the youngin’ chop his body up, he got nauseous.” The ST. capo jumps right in with: “Word on the street, them boys looking for you / You order the beef, then they gon’ cook it for you / I’m from where the base-heads still cook with foil.”
The visuals here are mostly just the Griselda and ST. teams drinking and smoking together in some industrial location. However, for most of Term’s verse, he’s whipping a 1930s Mercedes Benz with some female company on the passenger side.
