With their contribution to the 13th soundtrack still moving masses and provoking hard thought, Robert Glasper and Common have reconnected to provide the score for yet another riveting film. Last week, Gerard McMurray and Christine Berg's Burning Sands premiered on Netflix. The film digs deep into the psychological and physical costs of increasingly violent hazing rituals in college fraternities. Glasper and the Chicago rapper deliver a soothing ballad to complement, wrangling Lianne La Havas and Karriem Riggins for their latest collaborative concoction, "The Cross." Hear Common, Robert Glasper, Karriem Riggins and Lianne La Havas on their latest below and peep Burning Sands on Netflix today.
