Lupe Fiasco has been number one in my book of hip-hop artists for almost a decade. What I always loved most about him were his story telling abilities. His lyrical content always sent a message and served a purpose. This track featuring Lupe, Mikkey Halsted, and Jim Lavigne was dropped in response to the increase of violence going on in Chicago, as well as the nation as a whole. With such a powerful message, to be able to turn into such a fantastic song is really amazing. And although I don’t know much about Mikkey and Jim, I couldn’t think of a better artist to get on board for this project than Lupe.

Such a great song with such a great message. Give it a careful listen.
