Big K.R.I.T., Talib Kweli and Coalmine Records Donate to American Cancer Society

(AllHipHop News) Coalmine Records has collaborated with the American Cancer Society to orchestrate a song that will donate all revenues to the American Cancer Society.

The track is titled “Beautiful,” and features Big K.R.I.T., Talib Kweli, Outasight, and Mela Machincko.

The record is in honor of Shawn, a breast cancer survivor who is the cousin of Coalmine Records founder Matt Diamond.

Shawn, who is featured on the introduction and outro of the track, suffered from breast cancer and survived, despite the uphill battle that many cancer victims face.

According to the American Cancer Society, as of 2011, there were 230,480 new cases of breast cancer.

While many people are familiar with cancer as the leading cause of death in the United States, many Americans don’t know the basics of the disease, or that nearly half of all men and one-third of all women in the U.S. will develop cancer during their lifetimes.

The song “Beautiful” is available for sale through all major digital retailers today (October 18).
