Though Cardan‘s been making moves as a ghostwriter (even earning the moniker “hip-hop’s Ne-Yo”) since returning from his post-Harlem World hiatus, he’s not about to spend the rest of his musical career behind the scenes—for him, the spotlight simply Feels Like Home. With the release of documentary film A Day In The Life, the artist plans to raise his profile by offering listeners an inside look at his work with some of the game’s biggest names, and he’s included a few killer tunes in the bargain. On the first official leak off the film’s soundtrack, Cardan stakes his claim on “stadium status,” with all the high-class luxuries and screaming fans that entails. J Buttah delivers a driving, danceable accompaniment to the rapper’s ambitious rhymes, topping his staccato-synth instrumental off with an instantly-recognizable sample from Madonna’s ‘89 smash, Like A Prayer. While it remains to be seen whether Cardan is truly destined for stadium-packing superstardom, this high-energy cut’s danceable vibe is sure to stir up anticipation for both the rapper’s film (coming “soon”) and the soundtrack LP (due out this fall).
