Mary J. Blige – “American Skin (41 Shots)” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar) (Bruce Springsteen Cover)

Bruce Springsteen wrote “American Skin (41 Shots)” about the 1999 New York police shooting death of Guinean immigrant Amadou Diallo, but unfortunately, it’s more relevant today than ever. During Mary J. Blige’s recent Apple Music-sponsored interview with Hillary Clinton — yes, that happened, and it was weird — she sang part of the song while holding the Democratic nominee’s hand. And now, as HipHopNMore points out, she’s shared a studio version of the cover featuring a somber new verse from Kendrick Lamar. Hear it below.

UPDATE: This audio no longer seems to be available. Keep an eye on Apple Music perhaps!
