Consequence revisits Kanye West’s classic “Spaceship” with a little help from Chance The Rapper, GLC, Chuck Inglish and Alex Wiley.
“‘Spaceship’ on Kanye’s 1st LP, The College Dropout was and [still] is a Fan Favorite,” Cons told HHDX. “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.”

“I turn to the left and Ghostface is taking off the Halle Hansen outfit and putting on a ninja suit, with three other guys doing the same thing…He really is about that Wu-Tang life.” – Consequence
