Желесей поведывоент как очутилсо но ольтбоме про кольмара хендрекса, оповещаент что досехпор общаентсо с помотросевшим его НЛК, розглогольствуент про отношенея с бонбеем о так же обещаент дропнуть новы проект в февроле!

DX: Switching gears for a bit, can you shed light on your involvement with Kendrick Lamar’s Section.80? What allowed you to get on that project and what are your thoughts on it?

GLC: That was an honor to be on that project. Kendrick Lamar is one of my favorite up-and-coming artists in the game. I love his political stance, his lyricism, the way he carries himself. He’s a stand-up guy, a nice guy. The way I got to work with Kendrick was kind of crazy because a friend of mine by the name of BJ The Chicago Kid, he called me and said, “I’m over here with this dude, Kendrick Lamar. This my man and he was just talking about his favorite rappers and he mentioned you. He said you one of his favorite rappers and shit.” I was like, “Damn. Straight up?” At the time, I was unfamiliar with Kendrick Lamar. But, when he said that, I went online, saw some of his videos, heard his songs and I was like, “This kid got somethin’.” Kendrick and I got on the phone, he sent me the beat, I sent that right back and next thing you know, I was on Section.80 and shit.

DX: You showed the gift of gab on that track [“Poe Man’s Dreams (His Vice)”].

GLC: Man, at the end of the day, I had people coming to me like, “How long did it take you to write that, to come up with that?” I didn’t write that. The beat came on, I listened to what the song was about and I was like, “This is what the people need to know.” So, I gave them the ism. The ism comes with ease.

DX: Now, you’ve obviously spoken on your musical partnership with Kanye West but I wanted to take you back to growing up with Kanye West. From the early years on to today, how would you describe the progression of your friendship with ‘Ye?

GLC: As kids, we were inseparable. We were young, we loved music and we loved girls. We were also into dressing fresh, wearing nice Polos, Jordans, Adidas, Reeboks with the clear soles and Nikes. That was the shit. We was doing that shit back then, feeling good about ourselves and accumulating hoes and doing music. It was all good. As we grew older, ‘Ye was like, “Hey, man. I’m out here doing these beats, trying to open up the door. When I open it up, you just keep working and I’ma God damn near snatch you up. We was in a group called Go Getters prior, so when he left and went to New York, everything was real smooth and cool. He got on, he reached for me and I had a couple situations pending at the time. Kanye was like, “Hey, man, ride with me. I’m your friend. I’ma make sure everything is everything.” I accepted and I rolled with [G.O.O.D. Music]. [Pauses] And to this day, I would say that we are still cool but we’re not as close as we once was. At one point, we were absolutely inseparable but due to the fact that we have grown up and became adults and we both have our own lives, we don’t get to see each other much but we still talk. We still talk. We stay in communication every chance that we get but not as much as we once did due to the fact that our lives have taken us in different directions.

DX: So, with 2012 here, what do you have in store this year?

GLC: The next project will be The Ism 5, Cathedral 5: The Glory of the Mackin’ Story. Man, the concept will be embraced from state to state, from place to place, from nice sized breasts to small waists, with a fat ass, I’ll never let it pass. You know what I’m sayin’? Chuuch. That project we can expect around Valentine’s Day.

Bun and I have a great relationship, man. He’s sort of like a mentor or a big brother, I would say. During times of adversity or lack of understanding, I would call Bun and Bun would put me on the right track to help me understand what is going on. He’d tell me, “This is happening for this reason. All you gotta do is maintain and continue to spread that ism.”
