JAY Z shares a new protest track titled “Spiritual,” addressing police brutality following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
On his first solo track in three years, Hov gets personal and reflects back his personal life. In one verse Jay raps:
“This is tougher than any gun that I raised
Any crack that I blazed, that was nothin’
Peeling back the layers, uncovering
Scars that never healed, I never kept it this real.”
In addition to the powerful single, Jay also released a statement sharing details on the creation of “Spiritual” and his thoughts on the recent shootings. Jay declares “I trust God and know everything that happens is for our greatest good, but man…it’s tough right now.”
