J. Cole is always one artist that we can count on to speak about the issues that are close to home. In reaction to the killing of Mike Brown, J.Cole releases Be Free, where he includes clips from a friend’s interview on the incident, along with singing the following words in a very tired voice:
All we wanna do is take the chains off.
All we wanna do is break the chains off.
All we wanna do is be free, all we wanna do is be free.
It is sad to think that after all our ancestors fought for, we are still fighting today for freedom, acceptance, and peace. Although the fighting is tiring, this Inspirational Sunday always remember to never give up. As long as our young black men are still being killed, the fight is NEVER over!
RIP Mike Brown!
