I first came across West Coast artist GLAM (Good Lyrics And Music) through music I should listen to on SubmitHub and then on Spotify proper. The multifaceted artist’s latest jam, “Start Sh!t,” is a bass-heavy, frantic declaration of independent thought while also just being a solid track. The video features several memes lifted from various places, played on a loop to showcase how much this one is a bop. I mean, if Michelle and Will Smith rocking out to it and Raven-Symone’s krumping to it, I think I’ve got to write about it.
The song features GLAM going from playful barbs at her opposition to cutthroat lines about those who try to downplay her all in one fell swoop. It’s actually a bit wild to think about, that a “bop” can have so much lyrical power within it. Then again, this is SpeedontheBeat.com, so lyrical bops are what we like to feature over here. Check out the track below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
