New York, NY – Still pumping with fresh energy from his recently released La Maquina album, Conway The Machine made his national television debut on Thursday (May 13) in style — and with a couple of tenured lyricists by his side.
Performing the fast-paced, bass-heavy “Scatter Brain” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the Griselda/Drumwork general got live assistance from the song’s guests Ludacris and J.I.D.
The three MCs conjured up their tongue-twisting rhymes in a swirling labyrinth of disconnected television sets and barbed wire encapsulated in a low-hanging mist. As parts of the world come to terms with the positive aspects of the COVID-19 vaccine, the performance speaks to the reemergence of live shows in the space as well.
La Maquina has no shortage of collaborations as Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn, 2 Chainz, Jae Skeese and 7xvethegenius all make appearances on the vocal side.
