Hawklyfe Records Artist Conway Da Creature starts his 2017 campaign off with the first single from the upcoming EP "Open-Faced" produced entirely by TruColors/Team BackPack Producer ILL Brown. This track was an ILL Brown style dedication to the career and life of the Famed Sean Price of Heltah Skeltah, who died in August 2015. Seeing that Price was one of Conway's biggest influences, in his eyes it was his duty to stamp his imprint...... HawkLyfe Records & Conway Da Creature present "Ruck-Us"
