Lyrical maestros Lupe Fiasco and Aesop Rock have paired up on a new track. The new song is called "Pumpkin Seeds," and is single released to support The Collaboratory, a Dayton, Ohio based non-profit that aims to create an “infrastructure for people and organizations to collaboratively develop community initiatives that generate new economic, civic and creative opportunities and value.”

"Pumpkin Seeds" was released on Friday (December 9), and proceeds will help The Collaboratory renovate and refurbish two local skate parks: the Claridge Park DIY in Central Dayton and the Home Ave DIY in West Dayton.
