Common and John Legend walked away with an award for Best Original Song for "Glory" from Selma last night at the Golden Globes Awards. Beating everyone from Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Sia & more. The movie itself is based the Selma to Montgomery civil rights marches of the 1960s.

After accepting the award common went on to say "Now is our time to change the world, Selma is now!"

Here are also a few lyrics from the Chicago rapper "Selma is now for every man, woman, and child / Even Jesus got his crown in front of a crowd," he raps, "They marched with the torch, we gon' run with it now / Never look back we done gone hundreds of miles."

Even Jay Z took to his rarely used twitter and congratulated the Chicago MC
