Virginia-born artist Stephen decides to call on Chicago rappers Saba, Ravyn Lenae, the O'My's, and J.P. Floyd for the third installment in his “Crossfire” release series.
According to the song’s description, “15% percent of all earnings from this record are going to Young Chicago Authors, a creative after school program serving 10,000 youths per year.”
"The process of creating Part III was very new for me," Stephen told The FADER. "In the past I’ve almost always done everything from producing to writing to mixing, but this time I let some other incredible artists take the wheel. I gained a lot of respect for the Chicago creative community, and a blossoming desire for more collaboration. It feels great to give back to an organization like Young Chicago Authors — a platform for young poets and hip-hop artists.”

Can you cross the street without crossfire
Skidmarks under car tires
All my neighbours they call prayers
Other side of the barbed wire
I'll watch from my porch
'Till it's dark out and the vampires
Eating alive the damn sirens
We watch the game like umpires
