Taiyamo Denku and Conway The Machine are all about being real and saying no to corny gimmicks. They share what that mindset is made up of over a soulfully charged Dcypha instrumental

Taiyamo Denku is prepping the release of his forthcoming album, “No Industry Standard”, that features guest such as Lil Kim, Chino XL, KRS One and many more. For the lead off single, the Milwaukee Monsta teams up with Griselda Records front runner Conway The Machine for the eye opening “Be Who You Are”. Aimed to wake up listeners mentally, the two emcees drive an important message to the masses’ ear lobes. That memorandum is to “Be Who You Are”, nothing more or less.
Conway kicks the record off by detailing felonious tactics and imagery of true life living from within the streets. The lifestyle found in the lyricism is something the shooting survivor has a first person account of fully “Drive by spraying hecklers / the game’s mine now, go relay the message / I give the word, youngins on your block making messes / I got the call it was finished before I ate my breakfast”
Denku approaches his verse from an introspective outlook. He speaks about painkillers, misguided rappers and the starving artist’s plight to achieving success in the industry. His mixes these subjects with his rhyme battle background for some sick wordplay. “Won’t change my tone, I was born in the shade / I’m bout to do what I love, not just getting paid / Every record gets slayed, the dragon needs taming / depart the dirty truth or I’m telling Matt Damon”
Overall, “Be Who You Are” combines all the proven elements of a true Hip Hop song; truthful lyrics, concentrated energy and a rugged beat. Check it out above and stay tuned for more releases from “No Industry Standard”. The visual for the Beatnuts produced “Stand Back” will premiere later this month. Following that, Taiyamo will be debuting the “Fabulous Life” single alongside the Queen Bee, Lil Kim. Stay updated with everything via Taiyamo Denku’s social media accounts.
