Conway The Machine - "Piano Love"

There isn't much piano based hip hop out there, but the latest from Conway The Machine changes that. "Piano Love" features the MC rapping over piano keys and quiet beats that mostly stay in the background. The piano feels like a bizarre little loop of notes that don't exactly form a melody. It's more like the tinkling of keys that you'd find in a haunted house than an actual song. It's the exact opposite of modern hip hop, which is mostly giant, thundering beats and overproduced throw everything in the song production. This is closer to early Wu-Tang Clan with it's more sparse production.

You can listen to "Piano Love" below. God Don't Make Mistakes is forthcoming and will be out on Shady Records. For more on Conway The Machine, check out the artist on Twitter and Instagram.
