Alchemist, Westside Gunn & Conway Make A Song Inspired By Ghostface’s Early Days (Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Over the last few years, Griselda Records has been quenching some of the thirst for Hip-Hop fans craving grimy and vintage sounds. Westside Gunn and Conway The Machine have been cooking up enough musical contraband sure to sooth every stick-up kids and petty thieves’ soul… And really anyone who enjoys 1990s East Coast hardcore Rap. It’s something Wu-Tang Clan, more specifically Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, were able to do beginning in ’93.

The Buffalo, New York duo have dropped a ton of music together and on each’s solo works since gaining national prominence years ago. While on tour, Gunn and Conway have been performing a song called “94 Ghost S**t” but it’s never been officially released until now. Consisting of gritty loops and eerie hi-hats, Alchemist’s grimy production is the perfect backdrop to The Machine’s opening verse, which is monstrous. ALC worked with G.F.K., doing three tracks on his Bulletproof Wallets album back in 2001.

This sh*t is not for radio,” Conway raps. “I’m not complaining though / Still heading to the top, a spot they told me was not attainable / Because the way my face looks from when them ni**as shot my cranial / Area how I’m still living that sh*t is not explainable.” W.G. later picks up from where Con’s lyrical slaughter ceases and provides ad-libs with similar content.

“94 Ghost Sh*t” is available for purchase off of Alchemist’s Bandcamp page along with “Fork in the Pot,” another collabo from the trio also featuring ScHoolboy Q. The two joints are also available via a vinyl double-sided single that’s scheduled to be released beginning on November 2 to those who pre-order.
