As one of the first groups in the hip-hop community to publicly endorse presidential hopeful Barack Obama in late 2007, Kidz In The Hall are continuing their unwavering support for the Chicago native with a new track.
As they did with their track “Work To Do,” the duo have crafting a new remix for a track called “Change,” which features Bun B and Talib Kweli.
The song’s content focuses its attention on many of the issues facing both the artists as individuals, as well as the country as a whole. With the unification of three artists from three different cities — Chicago, Brooklyn and Houston — the Kidz hope it will encourage young people to take a long look at the issues affecting them in this country.
The “Change (Remix)” will also be the first release to be featured on the much talked about DJ Green Lantern and Russell Simmons Obama mixtape, Yes We Can, due out next month.
In addition to the new track, the Kidz In The Hall will embark on a 16 city college campus tour this week with Gym Class Heroes in support of their sophomore LP, The In Crowd, which hits stores May 13.
Talib Kweli has just released the MCEO mixtape with Mick Boogie and his CD, Eardrum, is in stores now. While Bun B will be releasing his much anticipated II Trill solo project April 29th.
