[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Nyzzy Nyce broke down his "I Just Rather" anthem, Brooklyn rapper Gliffics decodes his revamped "Aim for the Sky" track.]
"Aim for the Sky" is actually a record I had for my own album that I had put out in 2011 but it was different production. I had produced it with illMind. So I had produced "Aim for the Sky" with illMind.
Then I started working with [Vh1 affiliate] Ben [Lindell] because he's an engineer as well as a producer and he was working on my new album that I'm going to be putting out this summer. He was telling me about this [Vh1 Save the Music] project and asked me if I had anything that could be remixed.
Once he told me what the album was benefiting and what it was for, I played him "Aim for the Sky" and told him it would be the perfect track and he should remix it. He loved it and that's what he did. The new music production is all completely new, they just took our vocals.
I've always been somebody who has been about giving back to people and especially children and especially the future. I was somebody who was in school where we didn't have good music programs. If I could do something that's going to give somebody something I cherish so much and love and I cannot be without today, then that makes me feel very honored and very happy and proud of myself for that.
That record really touches a lot of people and it's probably one of the most well-written songs I've ever put out.
Brooklyn hip-hop artist/producer Gliffics is raising the bar on quality Independent artistry. His peers and industry tastemakers alike tip their hats to his lyrical integrity and polished production, his relentless grind and pursuit to brand himself in an impactful, innovative fashion. Gliffics is rapidly garnering the attention of hip-hop's heavyweights, who are proving more and more eager to see him rise to the top.
