Last night, three of Chicago’s biggest stars gathered at the Stand Up To Cancer benefit concert to perform their anti-cancer anthem “Remission.” Lupe, J-Hud and Com Sense joined the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell, to raise money and bring awareness to the deadly disease. Dope music for a good cause — check out their live performance above.
Three of the city’s finest come together and stand against cancer on “Remission”, which serves as the official remix of Lupe’s “Mission” single. Lupe, Jennifer and Com will be performing “Remission” during Stand Up To Cancer on September 5th, which is the same day the single will hit iTunes.
Until then, press play and check out the video for “Remission” above.
Festival season isn’t over yet.
The first annual AAHH! Fest, by Common, will take place in Union Park on September 21st and the lineup looks amazing.

A very special guest is also said to be gracing the stage, but only time will tell who that is. The festival will also include a community showcase curated by Rhymefest and featuring a performance from Diggy Simmons.
