Getting a GLC feature is always a damn good look. While hardcore fans of the Chi-Town MC are in all likelihood relegated to the Windy City, Kanye West introduced the masses to the gruff OG in “Spaceship.” Kendrick Lamar, Freddie Gibbs , and King Chip have since utilized GLC’s talents. No matter how you look at it, his gruff voice and OG demeanor lends credibility to young, up-and-comers. ‘Mic opened up about the inspiration behind the track and how the GLC collaboration formulated:
“Working with GLC was a dope experience. He just handles things from a real OG perspective and getting his respect as an artist let me know I was on the right track. We did the record in Chicago and he laid down an iconic verse. And the production from Gummy Soul was the perfiect vibe. Everything worked…”
OPENMIC definitely qualifies as an “up-and-comer” but be always include the words “rising fast,” too. So with a smile and a strong recommendation, we present “Sit Back,” a hip-hop/jazz horn orgy that just radiates substance and soul. ‘MIC’s confidence continues to grow as an emcee, rattling off bar after quotable bar:
“I’m gettin’ out this cheese trap
Seeing hands and feeling doubt
‘Cause they ain’t want this G’s dap,
They want a G or 10 in hand
I’m killin’ them, the kin of Sam”
Horns blare, GLC interjects with some preach-worthy spoken word about “chuuuch” and your hair stands on end, and you get real excited about both the content of the song and the direction that OPENMIC could take For The Rebels 2.
Your day has been made.
