When Conan (@ConanMSG) let the people in his circle hear the material on his forthcoming mixtape, the Memphis rapper and his crew realized he was discussing the positive and negative of life with equal aplomb.
“It’s like two different sides to my story,” Conan explains. “It’s the streets and the different things that I’ve been through in my life. I try to touch every subject I can on every level.”
Given the wide range of topics he raps about, Conan knew that the title of his project needed to represent a higher level of thought, as well as the streets. Governorz & Gangstaz became a perfect description.
“The streets is the Gangsta part,” Conan says. “I’m also trying to touch the young folks and let them know that it really ain’t about trying to be gangster. It’s not all that it seems to be. That’s the Governors part, the leader. Folks in the industry are fooling everybody. They have the young brothers doing things that they’re not really about because they see everybody else doing it.”
