I hate comparing every hip hop song I like to the 90's and Wu-Tang Clan in particular, but if a song is called "John Woo Flick" it's kind of hard not to. The latest from Conway the Machine features Benny the Butcher and Westside Gunn, and it features the same kind of sparse kung fu influenced production we heard on Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). This is just the kind of classic old school hip hop we absolutely love here at If It's Too Loud... that we wish we heard more of. "John Woo Flick" is that slow kind of rap song that seems to pace around in your head with just the slightest trace of menacing undertones. That being said, this is a fun song and a killer collaboration.
You can watch the video for "John Woo Flick" below. God Don't Make Mistakes is due out February 25 on Shady/Interscope Records. For more on Conway the Machine, check out the artist's website.
