Chance The Rapper has teamed up with Barack Obama for the PSA about the former president’s My Brothers Keeper Alliance.

The ad, titled “We Are the Ones,” is a call to action for the MBK movement, which Obama started in 2014, with an initiative to bring safer communities to young people of color. “I want you to know, you matter. There is nothing, not a single thing, that’s more important to the future of America than whether or not young people all across this country can achieve their dreams,” says Obama in the clip.

“I am my brother’s keeper,” Chance The Rapper adds. The clip also features the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry.

Chance and Obama’s relationship is well documented. Last month, the Chicago rapper performed at the Obama Foundation Summit, a two-day event that drew leaders from all over the country to discus pressing issues.

Also in November, Chano hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live, where he participated in a skit of a faux 1990s R&B group who crooned about desiring Barry back in office.

Back in May, Obama gave an informal plug for Chance to show up at his recording studio in the Presidential Center that was being built at the time, saying his lab would be a place where someone could, “invite Chance [the Rapper] or Bruce Springsteen, depending on your taste, to come here and talk about how you can record music that has social commentary and meaning.”
