A recent trend that has surfaced in hip-hop is to do collaborative projects with another artist. I'm not saying that artists haven't done this before, I'm saying that it's become a trend. Arguably two of the greatest, Kanye West & Jay-Z, may have gotten this trend going when they dropped Watch The Throne.
Give Glory a listen - it's a new offering from Jay Z, featuring B.I.C.. It was dropped on Monday, January 9th, 2012. Jay Z's musical situation is improving with every new release, and Glory will most definitely help the cause.
