Back in May, Lupe Fiasco announced his newly-launched partnership with charitable nonprofit Stand Up for Cancer by unleashing Mission, a moving joint dedicated to all suffering from the disease. Now, the emcee has enlisted two fellow Chicago heavyweights to join him in his efforts to help find a cure. On Remission, an unknown producer’s epic, synth-driven beat backs Lupe as he dramatizes a woman’s struggle to defy the doctor’s prognosis. Common describes his own father’s battle with cancer on verse two, and soul songstress Jennifer Hudson provides a soaring guest hook. All Power Worldwide and Square56‘s in-studio visuals accompany the cut. Fans will be able to hear this record performed live on Stand Up 2 Cancer’s next primetime TV special, airing September 5, at 8:00 PM EST. From the 5th onward, Remission will also be available for purchase on iTunes.
