Kirk Franklin x Lil Baby Find Their Inspiration on the Just Blaze Produced “We Win”

Gospel and Hip-Hop come together for a refreshing sound.

Your eyes did not deceive you with this headline. Gospel’s own Kirk Franklin has linked with the arguably the Hip-Hop’s hottest artist in Lil Baby for the inspirational anthem “We Win.”

With Just Blaze’s production carrying his signature heavy drums and cymbals hits, Lil Baby boldly declares his inner strength comes from God.

We done raised the bar so many times

It’s only right they give me mine

Diamond by myself, together we really shine

Long as I keep putting my faith and trust in God

I know that everything will be fine

Build for it, real stand up guy, they ain’t never breakin’ my kind

I believe I can do anything, ain’t never changin’ my mind

Just Blaze is no stranger to gospel-style choruses, as evidenced from his 2005 collaboration with Game, Nas and Marsha Ambrosius. “We Win” has that same feel but on stripped down and streamlined level, allowing Baby’s lyrics and Kirk Franklin’s call and response to create a perfect symbiotic marriage of Hip-Hop and spirituality.

“We Win” is the first single Space Jam: A New Legacy Official Soundtrack, arriving in stores and at all digital retailers on July 9, 2021.
