Gucci Mane and Pusha T Hop on Common’s “Black America Again” Remix
Gucci kicks things off, rapping of his time away. "The Government, the church and the world is so polluted/They calling me a criminal when I'm a revolution/Woke up in a prison cell and I had a revelation/If my life’s a testimony I can be an inspiration/From the 6 to the Chi, got so much in Common/Gucci Mane and Common, did you see this coming?" Gucci has been in high demand since his release from prison in May, Wop releasing music with Drake, Kanye West, Travis Scott and more. His appearance on the G.O.O.D. Music track "Champions" puts that question and the collaboration into better focus, though.
Black America Again features John Legend, BJ The Chicago Kid, Bilal and Stevie Wonder, who appears on the original track. Common announced the remix today via Twitter, writing, "My hip hop comrades @PUSHA_T and @gucci1017 lend their talents and perspective to #blackamericagain." Listen to the remix up above.
Common dropped a short film produced by Ava Duvernay likewise titled Black America Again earlier this month. The 21-minute visual takes viewers on a black-and-white trip through the unadulterated streets of his hometown of Chicago, offering different glimpses of the city and giving Com's latest release a multi-media release.
