Back on Kanye West’s iconic debut, The College Dropout, the album cut (and halfway single) “Spaceship” became the ultimate anthem for those individuals who felt like they were in The Twilight Zone while working a 9-to-5 job.
Thirteen years later, we’re still singing along in unison. Today, original song star Consequence is adding his two cents to Alex Wiley’s “Spaceship II” which features the newly minted Grammy magnet, Chance The Rapper, Chuck Inglish and GLC (who also appeared on the original.
“‘Spaceship’ on Kanye’s 1st LP, The College Dropout was and [still] is a Fan Favorite,” Cons exclusively tells HipHopDX. ”
I thought that Alex Wiley, Chance The Rapper and Chuck Inglish did a great job capturing the vibe of the original record with their own version. Once GLC co-signed it, I thought it would be great to add a verse and put a modern twist on our classic.”
Cons, fresh off his A Tribe Called Quest Grammys performance, is currently putting the finishing touches on his next LP.
