Finally, after a horrible, sleep deprived last couple of weeks, I am done with another semester. Now that I finally have time, I’m ready to unleash some things. The P&P Top 20 albums of the year is going to drop soon, along with the highly anticipated goldfish post. Maybe “highly anticipated” is a stretch, but there will be a goldfish post. But first, I have a contest for you. Ready?

First, the news:

Iconic artists and Chicago natives Common, Lupe Fiasco, Jennifer Hudson, and No I.D. recently collaborated to record the track, “We Can Do It Now,” an ode to their hometown in celebration of the popular series, REPLAY.  “We Can Do It Now” is available as a free download at

Season III of REPLAY features two South Side Chicago high school basketball teams, the Bloom Township Trojans and the Brother Rice Crusaders. The two teams competed this fall to settle their 2000 super sectional game that decided who would go “downstate” to the Elite 8 and who would go home. The original game ended with a controversial call regarding the game clock, shrouding the final shot in controversy for a decade. A documentary sharing the journey of these athletes and their REPLAY game will be airing throughout the month of December on Fox Sports Net (check or Fox Sports Net for local listings).

To celebrate this series and track, P&P is proud to present this contest, because that’s how we celebrate around here.
