Waking up on a grey Tuesday morning is always made better when Common drops a new track, and here it is the remix to Common's powerful "Black America Again" featuring Gucci Mane, Pusha T, and BJ The Chicago Kid.

Common shared the remix with his fans on twitter saying, "My hip hop comrades @PUSHA_T and @gucci1017 lend their talents and perspective to #blackamericagain."

"Black America Again" is the title track of Common's new album. This timely record in the wake of the recent US presidential elections is filled with social and political commentary and the status of America and the black culture within it. Common confirmed that the album was purposely released just a few days after the national election saying "As the project started to develop and became what it became, it was like, 'Man, this is an election year. This music needs to be out and heard at that time.' And these times are creating music like this."

Gucci Mane and King Push jumping on this remix has sent the internet into a frenzy, check it out below...
