EP Review | Conway the Machine – Everybody Is F.O.O.D. 3

This EP was released on April 5th this year. Conway is the second best rapper in the Griselda crew in my opinion. I prefer Benny personally, but Conway is really good too. With that said, the first Everybody Is F.O.O.D. project is my favorite Griselda release. Considering all the hype surrounding the label, I’m surprised people didn’t talk about this project that much. That’s probably not a good sign honestly. I think I’m gonna like it though. It might not be on the level of the previous EIF records, but I’m sure it’ll still be enjoyable.

1. Everybody Is F.O.O.D. produced by JR Swiftz

One thing that I’m already kinda disappointed about is the fact that there are no beats from Daringer on this project. He was a big part of why I loved the first EIF project so much. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised though because he wasn’t involved in the second one. That project at least had The Alchemist & Khrysis though. Whatever. This one has DJ Skizz & Cookin’ Soul, so that’s cool. Anyway, the beat on this track from JR Swiftz is actually pretty dope. Damn. Conway killed that first verse. Okay, this shit is really fucking dope.

Lately the bitches give me more vagina
Niggas thought I was broke so I bought more designer
I wore the kind of shit your ho admire
Luxury foreign driver, pistol possession in all my priors
These niggas all are liars
I know some zoes who’ll push your shit from Opa-locka to Fort Myers with carbon fire
A hundred for my line-up
My rich white bitch, her mind was distorted kinda
She snorted imported China

That shit was hard as fuck. The hook is actually pretty tight too. Maaan… That second verse was awesome too. Wow. This shit is REALLY fucking good. The production got kinda old after a while, but as a whole this song is fucking awesome. This shit is dope af.

2. The Basement produced by K-Sluggah

Damn, this beat is fucking awesome. That first verse was dope as hell too. I gotta apologize to JR Swiftz & K-Sluggah for doubting them. I would’ve loved to see more placements from Daringer, but so far JR Swiftz & K-Sluggah really came through for Conway. The production is really fucking good. This song has a super simplistic structure. There’s no hook. There’s just a short break between the two verses. That second verse was hard as motherfuck.

Feel like I’m losing my mind, I did a line
Youngin’ squeeze a nine for me and mine
Big hole in his back, paramedics can see his spine

This shit is awesome. This is another great track. I love it. It’s dope af.

3. Country Mike produced by K-Sluggah

Man… This K-Sluggah guy is awesome. I love this beat. I don’t even care about Daringer being absent anymore. K-Sluggah really did a fantastic job on this project so far. This beat is dope af. It almost sounds like something Ka would rap over. There’s virtually no percussion. Conway’s flow on this first verse is really interesting. Man, this is so fucking good. I’m surprised I haven’t seen more people talking about this project because I’m loving this shit. The first verse is awesome.

We ain’t the same if you don’t shoot your blick or use your stick
Don’t try to hide, if we can’t find you, we gon’ shoot your bitch
Nail her to the crucifix, gruesome shit
I hate rappers, fuck you and that nigga that produced your shit

Just like with the previous track, this song doesn’t actually have a hook. It’s just two verses with a short break in between. Goddamn. He fucking murdered that second verse. This shit is amazing.

I get hate from haters ’cause I’m makin’ paper
Fuck them niggas, I did it my way and now my cake is major
Hit your face with razor, I slide with stick like I play for Sabres
We poppin’ them sticks, fifty shot clips, that shit’ll wake the neighbors

I LIVE FOR THIS SHIT. His flow was so fucking dope on that part of the second verse. I love this song. This is definitely my favorite track so far. It’s dope af.

4. Richest in the City produced by JR Swiftz

This song has another phenomenal beat. Man, this is such a well produced project. This song only has one verse, followed by a hook. The verse was pretty solid. His flow was cool, but it didn’t impress me as much as the other verses on this project so far lyrically. It was still good though. The hook kinda sucked, but it definitely wasn’t bad enough to ruin the song. The outro was a little long winded. It’s just him talking shit for about a minute and 45 seconds. It’s a cool song. It’s not as entertaining as the previous songs, but I definitely liked it to some extent. This is pretty good.

5. Egyptian Cloth produced by K-Sluggah

This song has yet another amazing beat. Shoutout to K-Sluggah. Every beat he contributed to this project is fantastic. I hope he keeps working with Conway. This is another song with just one verse. I like it. It’s definitely better than the previous track, but it’s not on the level of the first few tracks in my opinion. I’d probably like it more if it was more fleshed out. It’s just one verse along with a pitch-shifted outro that I wasn’t too crazy about. I like this track overall though. This is dope.

6. London Pound featuring Berner produced by Cookin’ Soul

This song stood out from the tracklist, and it should be pretty obvious why. I don’t really know why Berner is featured on this project. Dude is wack as hell. Maybe he isn’t too bad on this track though. I don’t know. Anyway, the production on this track is pretty dope. It has some Trap influenced percussion, which I’m not too crazy about. The other aspects of the beat are dope as hell though. The first verse from Berner wasn’t good, but it definitely wasn’t bad enough to completely ruin the song. I certainly could’ve done without it though. His flow was kinda shaky. The actual bars themselves weren’t particularly bad. They were just painfully average. He’s just such an uninteresting rapper. Seriously, he’s like Curren$y levels of uninteresting. Even Curren$y probably would’ve been a better feature though. Anyway, Conway’s verse was really dope. It wasn’t amazing or anything, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Turkey Backwoods, smokin’ out the pound
London pound wrapped in my vibe; I don’t fuck around
Fuck around, one of my guys come & buck you down
Gun you down, shoot up your corner with a hundred rounds

I like how he switched his flow up for the last quatrain too. This is a pretty good song. I definitely would’ve liked it more without Berner on that first verse, but he wasn’t bad enough to completely ruin the song. This is pretty good.

7. Survival

This is a 54 second long interlude. It’s just an audio clip of an interview. I’m not exactly sure who that is, but it sounds a lot like Nipsey Hussle. I might be wrong, but I think that’s who it is. Anyway, I got pretty much nothing out of this track. I’m never gonna listen to it again.

8. Don’t Judge Me produced by DJ Skizz

This beat from DJ Skizz is dope as hell. The hook from Conway is pretty dope too. This sounds like the most fleshed out, complete song. It has a proper hook, and two verses. It’s the most emotional song on the project. That’s not really saying much though. I mean, this IS a Griselda release after all.

When I shot that nigga and I ain’t wanna do it
But where I’m from if you pull your gun then you better use it
I recollect in the booth, so I make better music
Real niggas playin’ my shit; they say it’s therapeutic

The end of that last verse was pretty much the perfect way to wrap this whole project up.

Don’t judge me ’cause I’m a nigga with too much pride
I wanna get past the past, all I can do is try
But when I try, everything I do, it get scrutinized
But I ain’t never givin’ up, for my youth, I’ma ride
I hope one day you can find it in your heart to forget
And if you can’t, then I respect it, it is what it is
Listen, everybody is food, now I’m three for three
Don’t judge me, I’m just bein’ me

This is another fantastic song. I don’t really have any issues with it. The production is great, the hook is cool, and the verses are both really dope. This shit is dope af.

This EP is pretty great. It started off really amazing, and there was a slight dip in quality after the third track. I really liked it overall though. There’s actually not a single song on here that I disliked. As I said, the absence of producers like Daringer & The Alchemist worried me at first, but I ended up being satisfied with the production. That K-Sluggah dude did a great job. Conway is pretty much doing what he always does. I think he’s a really good rapper, despite being somewhat of a one-trick pony. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it I guess. Anyway, this shit is really dope. Check it out.
