Lupe Fiasco with help from Jennifer Hudson and Common are featured on "Remission," a partnership between Fiasco and "Stand Up To Cancer" to aid the fight against the deadly disease.

"Available on iTunes on September 5, 'Remission' is the latest in for-charity singles that SU2C has made available for public purchase," says

Fiasco tells a story of a woman who is going through breast cancer and rather than letting it hold her back she fights it head on.

Fiasco is a master at being to tell a story through a song just as he did in one of his earliest tracks, "The Cool." Common talks about his father's fight against prostate cancer and just like Fiasco he is a masterful storyteller rapper.

Hudson adds a powerful hook that encourages those who are suffering from the disease to keep on fighting no matter what.

"Stand Up To Cancer," will also be hosting a benefit show to help the fight against cancer on September 5, featuring celebrities such as Gywneth Paltrow, Justin Timberlake and many more.
