With a powerful intro, production from SoundZ & Duke Da Monsta, a chorus written by King Chef Tone & performed by SoundZ, and additional vocals from PeeJ & the legend Charlie Wilson, Lupe delivers some uplifting lyrics that are sure to motivate everyone that's on a Mission!
"Mission" is a track to empower those facing cancer, revere cancer survivors and remember those who have passed to due to cancer related illnesses. With an inspiring introduction from various cancer survivors telling their story, anchored by legendary singer/songwriter and cancer survivor Charlie Wilson, "Mission" has Lupe Fiasco expressing stories of the emotional burden of cancer, while also working to uplift those in an effort to help fight the disease.
In support of "Mission," Lupe has joined Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a grassroots movement to raise funds to accelerate the pace of cancer research, as a celebrity ambassador. Together, Lupe and Stand Up To Cancer are planning various collaborations tied to the track that will be unveiled later this year. - SU2C
