Song: Big Screen [ft. Kanye West]
Artist: GLC
Album: Love, Life & Loyalty
Label: G.O.O.D. Music
Producer: Kanye West
Notes: 1st single from LP
Analysis: For all the shit that Kanye takes (sometimes deservingly) for his superstar tantrums, his autotune singing tangents, and sometimes life choices, everyone should give the man credit. This is a man who has created so much classic material for this generation to live with forever. He also doesn’t see himself as “above” up and coming artists, so he isn’t afraid to lend a few verses and beats here and there but still let the spotlight shine on the individual. West has helped several careers of these artists along his way to the top, including: Lupe Fiasco, John Legend, Rhymefest, Consequence, Estelle, 88-Keys & Kid Cudi, as well as help re-invent the career of Common. His latest pet project is GLC, an old friend of his from the early 90s when the two were struggling artists together. GLC has been featured before on Kanye’s records (‘Spaceship’, and ‘Drive Slow’), but he is just now officially prepping his first solo album, and ‘Big Screen’ is the first taste. With Kanye West behind him and creating music for him, there is no reason why GLC can’t be as successful as the artists I’ve mentioned above.
