Conway The Machine's new album 'From King to a God' has excited fans saying he 'finally gave us a whole plate'
A listener found that one of Conway's new tracks titled 'Front Lines' represented the call for the Black Lives Matter and the ongoing protests for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor
Conway the Machine's new album is getting a whole lotta love. The rapper dropped his highly-anticipated studio album 'From King to a God' (FKTG) just a few hours ago on September 11. The new LP is his very first studio album that arrives before another 2020 release titled 'God Don't Make Mistakes'. The 14-track project comes after Conway dropped the LULU EP with Alchemist and 'No One Mourns the Wicked' with Big Ghost LTD.
FKTG includes tracks such as “Fear of God” featuring Dej Loaf, “Front Lines, “Seen Everything But Jesus” with Freddie Gibbs and the Method Man-assisted “Lemon.” Conway’s fellow Griselda Records members Benny the Butcher and Westside Gunn also make an appearance, along with Lloyd Banks, El Camino, Armani Caesar and more.
Fans are having a meltdown over the new record and have been quick to share their excitement on Twitter. "Conway The Machine really gon take up 40% of my Top 10 AOTY list, all by himself smh," said a fan, sharing a screenshot of the album's tracklist, while another wrote, "NEW @WHOISCONWAY HE IS SNAPPING."

Even Conway himself has appreciated the fan reactions with retweets on his own account with fan comments such as "Already ran this record up and down. @WHOISCONWAY finally gave us a whole plate!" and "congrats to @WHOISCONWAY on his recent ascension to GOD status #FKTG."
One fan excitedly noted, "Conway can f**king rap bro @WHOISCONWAY."

Another fan felt one of the rapper's tracks on 'From King to a God' closely and felt that it represented the call for the Black Lives Matter and the ongoing protests for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Titled 'Front Lines', the lyrics include "I just seen a video on the news I couldn't believe (Nah). Another racist cop kill a nigga and get to leave (Again?). He screamin', I can't breathe, cop ignorin' all his pleas. Hands in his pocket, leanin' on his neck with his knees (Pssh). Cracker invent the laws, that's why the system is flawed. Cops killin' black people on camera and don't get charged. We ain't takin' no more, we ain't just pressin' record. Can't watch you kill my brother, you gon' have to kill us all (Bu-bu-bu-bu-bu-bu-boom)."
"'Front Lines' by @WHOISCONWAY may be the most important song of 2020. It's a song many artists have attempted to make over the past several months of unrest but none have truly captured the moment like The Machine did. #FKTG," wrote a fan.

For Conway fans and those newly acquainted with the rapper, 'From King to a God' has felt like a long wait and its release couldn't have come at a better time. Conway has been teasing the new record over the past several months. In July, Conway confirmed that the upcoming studio album is prepped and ready, tweeting, "FKTG is finally complete... it’s quiet for all these niggas, the summer is MINES!" Looking at the epic levels of his debut album and the fan reception, it looks like Conway's prediction may be an accurate one.
