Westside Gunn/Conway/DJ Green Lantern

When: Sun., June 18, 9 p.m. 2017

Rust Belters Westside Gunn and Conway may be Eminem’s newest signees to Shady/Interscope, but these two rappers are neither from Detroit nor bushy-tailed newbies. The 30-something brothers (like, they’re actual brothers) perform together as Hall’N’Nash, and are the first rappers out of chilly Buffalo to get inked to a major label. With a sound reminiscent of New York’s boom-bap golden era accompanied by a dose of vivid, gritty street imagery and intricate, weirdo wordplay, Conway’s yin and Westside’s yang are this era’s Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. Named to Complex Magazine’s 2017 Artists to Watch, the pair plans to release projects with iconic New York producers Just Blaze and The Alchemist to continue their underground takeover. In the meantime, give a listen to Westside Gunn’s FLYGOD and Conway’s Reject On Steroids for a taste of their prowess before they grace the Grog stage tonight. (Lawrence Neil)
