The Closed Sessions family got down with The Ism for this new trunk rattler titled “Ride Around.” And Odd, Kweku and GL are most definitely ridin’ around and gettin’ it on this one. Put the whip in drive and take a trip below the jump to listen for yourself. See what I did there?Andrew Barber 0
Produced by SickOne, Da Internz & Xcel
Wow. This is a moment. The always-inspiring Antwone Muhammad (the artist formerly known as Twone Gabz) has done it again — this time alongside producer Sick One. They were able to get a vast majority of Chicago’s hottest artists and producers together on one track for a great cause, and to take a stand against social injustice. No one can fight the battle alone.
Community violence, police brutality, unity. Something has to be done, and Twone and Sick plan to move the needle with “Justice or Else.” This is a big. And it’s also in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, which takes place October 10th, 2015 in Washington, DC.
The official star-studded lineup is as follows: Antwone Muhammad, Chin Chilla Meek, Tyre & G.C, K’Valentine, Lil Herb, Mic Terror, Teefa, Katie Got Bandz, Chella H, Que Billah, GLC, Saba, King Louie. But enough from me, I’ll let Antwone and SickOne do the talking from here on out:

Chicago has become a breeding ground for violence in the Black and Latino communities while police brutality dowses the fire of tension among the youth. In the midst of it all, Chicago artist Antwone Muhammad (formerly Twone Gabz) and producer SickOne organized Chicago’s hip-hop community in a collaborative effort to address the violence and injustice as well as help Min.

It looks like Dame Dash and Kanye West’s rekindled relationship will expand beyond their rumored purchase of Karmaloop and one-off movie projects. It appears the former Roc Boys will also be diving back into music, as GLC announced the pair will be executive producing his new album, The Book Of Ism.
Wow, now that’s been a long time coming. I’d always heard that Dame wanted to sign and personally release a GLC project way back in the Roc-A-Fella days, and Kanye and Gangsta L have been buddies seemingly forever — so it’s nice to see these three back together again. There’s no word on an official release date, but keep your eyes peeled for more info in the immediate future.

Chicago staple and G.O.O.D Music vet GLC has announced that his upcoming album, The Book of St. Ism, will be co-executive produced by Dame Dash and Kanye West. After reports that the duo have been plotting on a stake in Karmaloop, it appears they’ll be teaming up on music as well. “GLC is the best at what he does,” Dash said via press release. “When he played me his music, I knew I wanted to put this album together and I gave Kanye a call and brought him in.” From his formative verses on The College Dropout’s “Spaceships” and Late Registration’s “Drive Slow,” to his hook and spoken-word bridge on Kendrick Lamar’s “Poe Man’s Dreams,” GLC’s been pushing an “Ism” ideology that he plans to document in full on his new record. “The ism teaches kids and adults to apply themselves and to supply their wealth,” he states, “all while understanding that the only limitations you’ll ever have are those that you place on yourself.” Here’s to a million more Yeezy and Dame passion projects in 2015.
