Never one to shy away from speaking truth, Joey Bada$$ recently released the politically charged record “Land Of The Free” from his upcoming anticipated album AABA. The record addresses the recent presidential election along with the contradictions that exist within the so called “land of the free.” To continue his thought provoking form of expression, the emcee delivered a 1 minute freestyle with GQ Magazine.
During the exclusive freestyle, the Brooklyn lyricist delivers some necessary bars that allow us to reflect on what freedom really means in the wake of police shootings and discrimination across the country.
“What’s freedom to you? / Let’s talk about it, take a minute, think it through / ‘Cause I’m all about it, but the concept seems new / Cops still shoot us down on Channel 5 news / Lock us up for anything we do to pay dues / Some of us woke, while some stay snoozed /”
