Year: 2007 Produced By: Xcel Album: Can't Tell Me Nothin' (Mixtape) Label: G.O.O.D. Music
In 2007, Kanye West's former protégé GLC was able to stand out on the crowded G.O.O.D. Music–sponsored Can't Tell Me Nothing mixtape with "I Ain't Even On Yet"—a track for those who assumed GLC was "on" (read: rich, famous, and signed) due to his big name affiliations. Three years later, GLC is well on his way to being on after inking a deal with EMI and releasing his debut album, Love, Life & Loyalty this past fall.
