Bun B & Cory Mo – This World (feat. Big K.R.I.T., Trae tha Truth & Raheem DeVaughn) MP3 download
Tuesday (May 25) marked one year since George Floyd was killed by police officer Derek Chauvin in the streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
In memory of Floyd, Bun B has collaborated with Big K.R.I.T., Trae Tha Truth and Raheem DeVaughn on a song called “This World.” The track is produced by Cory Mo and Zaytoven, and comes with a music video that includes footage of the Black Lives Matter protests that sparked across the world.
“Man, walking down the wicked streets of America, who’d have thought,” Bun B raps. “That the fight for basic civil rights was still left to be fought/Even after we lost Huey, Hampton, Martin and Malcolm/To racist elite power structures whiter than talcum?”
The song will particularly hit home for Trae Tha Truth, who personally knew George Floyd from when he lived in Houston. In a June 2020 interview with Pitchfork, he talked about his fondest memories of him.
“At times when it really counted, he stood,” he said. “When I was shut down from the world and it seemed like everybody turned on me, he didn’t. One time, George walked up to me before I got [a humanitarian award in Houston], and he was like, ‘Man, bro, we’re going to change the world one day.’ And right now, he’s actually changing the world.”
