norman-whiteside-e1413666882191 Purple Snow and Cities of Darkscorch are not technically the only Numero titles with Grammy potential. Kanye West sampled replayed the chord progression from “You Can Fly On My Aeroplane” for “Bound 2,” which has been nominated for not one but TWO Grammys (Best Rap Song and Rap/Sung Collaboration w/ Charlie Wilson). As a songwriter, Wee frontman Norman Whiteside stands to collect a statuette for his involvement. This would be a great start to a year where Whiteside is finally eligible for parole on a complicated 37-year sentence which is a story all to itself. The Columbus Dispatch wrote a informative article on the Kanye-Whiteside connection, which makes a nice companion piece to the lengthy Norman Whiteside feature Columbus Monthly produced five years back. This is to say that while the Numero Group is “honored just to be nominated,” we’re pulling for Norman (vis-à-vis Kanye) extra hard.
