Jay Electronica Gets Spiritual on Common’s ‘Kingdom’ Remix with Vince Staples
The only difference from the original version is the new verse from Jay Elect, which is tacked on at the end of the song. On his part, the Roc Nation rhymer weaves Islamic chants and biblical lines together and could possibly be throwing a small jab at Drake in the process.
"Rappers I gave birth to shot at the God, blasphemy / Told these motherf---ers to never Jimmy DeGrassi me / This goes out to those that choose to use / Disrespectful views on the original Jews / The chosen people of God getting slandered and abused in the streets and the news," he raps.
At the BET Hip-Hop Awards, the rap trifecta brought out the parents of Mike Brown, the young teen who was shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. They stood together in unison onstage and held a moment of silence in remembrance of Brown by raising their hands in the air.
