Mikkey Halsted & Lupe Fiasco ft. Jim Lavigne – “Gone” [LISTEN/DOWNLOAD]

Mikkey Halsted and Lupe Fiasco recently collaborated on a track entitled “Gone” to help promote social awareness against gun violence. “Gone” features Jim Lavigne, and speaks on the affliction gun violence causes in Chicago, and urban communities as a whole. Both Chi-Town lyricists bring their A-game on the track.

Check out “Gone” and some words from Mikkey Halsted below:

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.

    The warm weather hasn’t been a blessing for Chi City. Sadly young men see this as an opportunity to catch their enemies slippin. The only thing that can save the hood is fathers stepping up to the plate. These young men need to know there is a lot more to life than hoes, drugs, guns and beef. It’s a whole world that many kids will never see because of dumb ish.
