Common and Kanye West have teamed up to narrate the story of Chicago gangster-turned-businessman Harold "Noonie" Ward.

Captured by directorial duo Coodie & Chike, who previously directed "Through the Wire" and "Jesus Walks" videos for Kanye, Gangster With a Heart of Gold: The Noonie G. Story tells the life of Ward, a former top-ranking member of one of America's largest criminal organizations – the Gangster Disciples.

Set against the backdrop of the last 20 years of black Chicago gang culture, Windy City natives Common and Kanye narrate Ward's evolution from gangbanger to one of Chicago's entrepreneurial and philanthropic elite.

The film was executive produced by John. D. Curran and Harold Ward.

Gangster With A Heart of Gold: The Noonie G. Story lands on DVD August 21.
