AUGUST GREENE (COMMON, KAREEM RIGGINS & ROBERT GLASPER) FEAT. KIRK FRANKLIN, KIERRA SHEARD & BJ THE CHICAGO KID – OPTIMISTIC REMIX
Common, Kareem Riggins and Robert Glasper dropped the August Greene project earlier this year and now the trio remix the opening song “Optimistic” with a little help from BJ The Chicago Kid, Kirk Franklin and Kierra Sheard.
Common, Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper continue pressing forward as August Greene and release a new song titled “Black Kennedy.”
Common has formed the group August Greene alongside Robert Glasper and Kareem Riggins. You may have heard them before on the soundtrack for 13th with the song “Letter to the Free.” Now the trio are back at it with Brandy providing additional vocals on “Optimistic.”
“August Greene actually formed before we chose a name, before we even knew it was a band,” Common said in a statement. “Karriem, Rob and I go back many years. It was something natural. When I started working with them it was like, ‘man, this feels like home,’ and it felt new and fresh. We love working together. The music takes us all to new places and it just feels like, everything I want to be as a musician is within the group of August Greene.”
For his remix of “Black America Again,” Common taps a pair of emcees who couldn’t be more different in Pusha T and Gucci Mane. Along with BJ The Chicago Kid handling the hook, “Black America Again” is black excellence.
