Produced by David D.A. Doman. Jim Lavigne on the hook.
In light of all the recent violence in Chicago, Mikkey Halsted has decided to release his heartfelt collaboration with Lupe Fiasco, the eye-opening “Gone.” It’s a poignant reminder of what’s happening in the streets, and further explores the grim outlook a lot of children in Chicago (and across the US) have. A big salute to both emcees for putting this together.
Mikkey also wrote something to further expound on the subject matter:
In light of “37 SHOOTINGS, 46 VICTIMS & 9 MURDERS” during Chicago’s first ‘warm’ weekend, the Trayvon travesty, 6-year old Aliyah Shell, and in honor of my cousins Ismail & Malik that were gunned down last summer…I felt as though this was the time to drop this song. Shouts to Lupe for helping me paint a vivid picture of what goes on everyday in Chicago and every other ghetto in America. Also, shouts to David ‘D.A.’ Doman & Jim LaVigne for providing us the perfect canvas to paint upon.
Special Dedication to Blair Holt and the hundreds of CPS students lost to senseless violence.
WE CAN NO LONGER WAIT FOR OTHERS, SEEMINGLY UNAFFECTED BY OUR ISSUES, TO SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS FOR US. SPEAK OUT AND SAY SOMETHING, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, DO SOMETHING.
Hit the jump to hear the thought-provoking record…
