More Shots Fired: ‘Open Letter’ Remix Featuring Common

Published

on

Chicago rapper Common has added a verse to Jay-Z’s controversial new track, “Open Letter.” The unofficial remix, released on Monday, has Common discussing his own trip to the island to visit Assata Shakur.

“The same way they say she was a shooter, Assata Shakur, they tried to execute her. We should free her like we should Mumia,” the emcee raps.

Shakur, a former Black Panther, is the step-aunt of the deceased hip-hop icon, Tupac Shakur. She fled to Cuba in 1984 after escaping from prison in the United States. Shakur is accused of shooting and killing a New Jersey State Trooper during a shootout and is classified by the FBI as a domestic terrorist.

“It’s so political, I don’t trust figures, when it comes to revolution it’s just us ni**a,” Common continues. “They say I’m too Black like it’s lights out, might not get invited back to the White House. Still with the Obamas I ride, I’ll meet the President on the Southside.”

Last week, Jay-Z released the original version of “Open Letter” in response to media and politicians calling for an investigation into his five year anniversary trip to the Communist country with his wife, Beyonce.

Jason Derulo popped up at an L.A. Zumba class Tuesday night but he wasn’t there to take the class … he was there to teach it.

According to Forbes, Derulo has partnered with Zumba, who will be offering exclusive classes featuring choreography to his hit song “Tip-Toe” featuring French Montana.

To kick things off the 28-year-old showed up unannounced at Beat Box Studio LA to teach a few routines, and as you could imagine everyone was mad hype.

Perez Hilton and Youtube Fitness star Caleb Mitchell were amongst the 80 folks taking the class, which also included instructors and members of the University of Southern California dance team.

“What I love most about Zumba is that they make exercising fun and make it accessible to everyone all over the world. It’s a movement,” Derulo said. “They get great global rhythms and pair it with a routine everyone can do that will give you a total body workout that feels more like party than exercise. I admire that because you don’t typically associate dancing with working out and that’s the beauty of it.”

 

No word on if Derulo will be popping up at more classes, but if he does now you won’t be surprised.
