13) "Hope" by Twista feat. Faith Evans

"Hope" is a song performed by Twista and features Faith Evans performing the chorus. The music video of the song, in a typical promotional music video fashion, features clips of the film Coach Carter. The video utilizes graphic design throughout, mostly along the main theme of tattoo artwork flowing and transforming into real objects, an example being the tattoo picture on a man's arm turning into a real picture. The song mainly focuses on Twista's view on the War on Terrorism.

An alternate version of the song, sung by Cee Lo Green (featured on the Kamikaze album and not including Faith Evans), was created in memory of the 9/11 attacks. It rose to 24 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart. He also comments on The D.O.C's voice which he lost from a car accident and mentions the deaths of 2Pac, Biggie, Left Eye, Aaliyah and Jam Master Jay.
It also incorporates scenes from "Coach Carter" and include several charters from the movie; including Samuel L. Jackson.

The version featuring Faith Evans can also be found on her album The First Lady. Chamillionaire did a mixtape to this song titled "I Wish".
