"Hope" is a song by American rapper Twista from the soundtrack of the 2005 movie Coach Carter. Featuring singer Faith Evans who performs the chorus, the song mainly focuses on Twista's view on the War on Terrorism. The version featuring Faith Evans can also be found on her album The First Lady.
An alternate version of the song, sung by CeeLo Green (featured on the Kamikaze album and not including Faith Evans), was created in memory of the September 11 attacks. It peaked at 24th on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart.. He also comments on the voice of rapper The D.O.C., whom he lost from a car accident and mentions the deaths of rappers 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G., singers Aaliyah and Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and DJ Jam Master Jay.
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. It also incorporates scenes from the film and include several characters from the movie, including Samuel L. Jackson.
