    In the midst of making its new album Shade, Living Colour plans to address the recent rash of police shootings and other domestic violence situations with new songs — as well as a special new project built around the Notorious B.I.G.’s 1995 hit “Who Shot Ya?”

    The quartet is working with producer Andre Betts on a Who Shot Ya? mixtape that will feature a variety of artists adding to and improvising off the track. “It’s very eerily current because of the horrible things that have been going on with gun violence and various shootings,” Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid tells Billboard. “We’re still in process even as we speak and I don’t want to really talk too much about who’s in ’cause that’s still kind of fluid. But it’s going to happen in 2016 for sure and there’s a couple of folks who have approached us, so we’re going to see what the final tally’s going to be. But the things I’ve heard so far are really, really powerful, really fiery verses, and some of the writers are responding directly what happened in St. Paul, what’s happening in Baton Rouge. There’s a bit of that in the mix as well as other conversations.” Reid did say that Pharoahe Monch and Divine Styler have contributed material to the mixtape, while other artists will be announced soon.

    The guitarist’s hope, meanwhile, is to hear more music inspired by and commenting on both the events and the larger issues they raise.
