GLC talks to MTV about Kanye’s “G.O.O.D. Friday” idea we posted about last Sunday. GL’s been doin it for the past year! He then goes on to talk about some concepts behind his upcoming album Love, Life & Loyalty.
Today is the first Friday since Kanye’s tweets. Think we will get some new G.O.O.D. music today?
You saw the video for the DC Shoe commercial yesterday, now download the track.
I must say, this is the dopest track I’ve heard from The Kids in a minute. Joints like this are why I went ape shit when I first heard the duo three years ago. I wish I had more hands, so I could give this one more thumbs up.
The Cool Kids – Clicking (Gymkhana THREE)
While Freddie was in town last week for the Mad Decent Block Party, he dropped by Cosm Roks The Hip Hop Project radio show to chop it up about Str8 Killa, how he fits into the Chicago scene being a Gary cat and “Haterville”. Audio is below. Shouts to Cosm!

There’s no way I could do a Best of Bump Week and not include Johnson’s #1 partner in crime, Sly Polaroid. A few years ago it was undeniable that these two were quite possibly the most menacing MCs in the City, and had the streets locked down. Collaborations such as “Streetz”, “Top This (with Kanye West)”, “Hey Joe” and “Promise Land” only solidified that when these two were in tandem, they were pretty much unfuckwitable. Unfortunately, due to various legal situations, they didn’t have much studio time together towards the end of the last decade. I know you die hard fans agree when I say I wish we had more music from the duo.
Because music moves so fast nowadays and the fans are more fickle than ever, you tend to forget the impact an artist or crew had just a few short years ago. For example, I was at Shade 45 in NYC a few months ago, and was chatting with a high level hip-hop programmer at the station, who’s been in the industry for many years. We talked about Chicago hip-hop – the past, present and future – and before I could even name drop some of my favorite artists from the Crib, he was already asking me about the Goon Squad. He loved Bump and the movement, but he really, really loved Sly. That was the thing, you never really know where the music is landing or who exactly is hearing it. The same thing happened with Brainz Hussla, who was a favorite of a former Interscope and Capitol Records employee. Bottom line is that these guys were everywhere – not just within Chicago city limit, and they were all dope within their own right.

This guy 4-Ize has one hell of a rolodex. 9th Wonder, Gucci, Ludacris, GLC , J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and now B.O.B. have all contributed to his project. Impressive stuff.
Here he recruits Bobby Ray to let your boy go.
Yesterday, King and Beans shook up the internet with their “shots fired at Kanye & Jay” rendition of “Haters”; and today the duo returns to show you what the Chi-Town Division of State Prop really has to offer. This is more of an official example of what First String/State Property artist King The Hood Savior has on deck. Beans assists on the last verse. Stuntin’ (for the robbers) is a habit.

Words by FSD Contributor Pwelbs:
Some unexpected new music from those Cool Kids. Look’s like the duo has teamed up with DC Skate founder Ken Block and his team to create an original track for their “Gymkhana video series.” The track is called “Clicking (Gymkhana THREE)” and is written and produced by Mike and Chuck. We will be sure to post an mp3 as soon as it’s available.
Incredible visuals…and this is just part 1.
More info about the video after the jump.
