Let’s double up on Kanye shall we? Yesterday we got GLC’s verse alone. Now GLC let’s loose of the FULL VIDEO for Kanye’s Spaceship. I don’t even have to say how dope it is, to see this finally get released! Check GLC’s thoughts and then hit the jump…
First off, I’d just like to thank everyone for believing! There’s a lot of people saying where we could of been if this was released in 04 but for what ever reasons it wasn’t. I no longer wanna deprive the people of their rights! You have the right to embrace my concept as well as those of Kanye, Consequence & Tony Williams as we gave you are all! This is a story of triumph over the ills of society & the workforce interfering with your pimpin’ & in this time of a recession this record may be more relevant now than it was in 2004! Thank for letting me grow with you! Love, Life & Loyalty coming soon! Hello World! Oh yeah my player is fixed too sorry about the prior non pimpish auto-play!
UPDATE: The player was still giving a few folks issues, so I went ahead and put up the OnSMASH version. Still… all praise to GLC!!
At the beginning of the month, GLC shocked us with some still shots from the lost Spaceship video from Kanye West, himself & Consequence. Now he steps up the anticipation by dropping a portion of the video that includes his verse. I’ve included it after the jump since I can’t seem to turn off the auto play. Now let’s get the full version!
A few years ago when I worked at a commercial production company, I found out that the job had produced this Chris Milk-directed video for the song, which was set to be the final single off The College Dropout (I even had the treatment for the thing, until I threw it out while i was moving). When the label decided to just move on from the album and start promoting Late Registration, this video was set to be on a DVD compilation of Kanye West videos. I don’t know what happened, but essentially the entire thing got shelved and i forgot about the damn thing until GLC sent this over. Check out more shots – including Esther Baxter’s ridiculously thick self in one such shot – under the cut.
