The Grammy Family was Yeezy’s term for the first incarnation of the G.O.O.D. Music collective. The song served as a single for both Consequence and DJ Khaled’s first albums, and also served notice that Grammy Award–recipient Kanye West believed that his crew was destined to bring home a slew of golden gramophones. Ye? Without a doubt. John Legend? Of course. Common? He has a few. Consequence? I guess it was possible.
The track was also a roll-call for the G.O.O.D. affiliates, with Yeezy shouting out his Chi-Tow brethren who held a position in the company: “IB (Ibn Jasper), Don C, Johnny Patron (John Monopoly) and me.” Even Really Doe (“Really Doe done told you hoes where we stayin”) and GLC (“GLC gon’ be as stoned as Angie”) got in on the fun. This family was all inclusive.
