Widowmaker “Lamy” ft Conway, Sauce Heist, Al Divino and Westside Gunn

“While guest features frequently dominate many artists’ albums, true posse cuts with several artists aren’t as common today as they were 15+ years ago. Widowmaker and Trevor Lang sought to change that by bringing together sharp verses from 4 of today’s biggest emcees on one track.

Portland’s Guttah Greybeard and Grant Burgess make up the production duo known as Widowmaker. Deeply Rooted caught up with Guttah to find out how they put these cats together on a track like this.”

“The title, “Lamy,” refers to the iconic and ever-eccentric French fashion designer, Michele Lamy. In the album artwork, Trevor used photos of Lamy to create an accompanying visual, in which her typical portrayal as witch-like feels almost imminently threatening, as if we are all cursed upon seeing and hearing this joint.

The imminent threat comes not only from the visuals and the beat but also courtesy of the cast of emcees, using their own established styles to get their point(s) across.”

“The second single on the limited 7″ Vinyl pairs Widowmaker with Sunz of Man co-founder and Wu-Tang affiliate, Heaven Razah on “Stay Awake.” Heaven Razah struts over the snares and kicks and delivers his commanding rhymes. The piano loop delivers a matter of fact, courtroom vibe for Razah Rubies to lay down his sage advice.”

Razah rhymes:

“Cuz I ain’t all caught up in fame.

It’s more deeper than a stage name.

What’s a gun if there’s no aim?

A ricochet to a child’s brain.

We barely make it to the 12th grade

But we can tell you bout this 12 gauge.”

This track is the first off the Heaven Razah X Widowmaker project, coming in the near future.

Both “Lamy” and “Stay Awake” bring some serious talent over hard-hitting, sinister beats.
