Chance The Rapper Honors USA Basketball Teams in Nike's 'Unlimited Together' Film
As super athletes continue to compete for medals and glory at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio, Chance The Rapper has leaped into the action by penning an original song for Nike's Unlimited Together film, part of the "Nike Unlimited Campaign."
The piano-driven salute soundtracks the black and white film spotlighting USA basketball's finest, including Brittney Griner, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony and Maya Moore among others.
"People, people, we the people would like you to know that wherever you're going we're right by your side," sings Chance in the Hiro Murai-directed visual. "We want a W, we tired of picking different sides/ I got your jersey, just a different size," he raps, urging unity and teamwork.
“Our Nike Unlimited Campaign celebrates both the everyday athletes and the champion athletes who push their limits daily and who are proving their unlimited potential, whether that’s on the world’s greatest stage this summer, or just in a pickup game in the park,” said Greg Hoffman, Nike Chief Marketing Officer in a press release. “The USA Basketball teams are an amazing example of athletes who come together to pursue their goals for their team and their country.”
