After coming off of the major accomplishment of earning his first gold plaque for “Devastated,” Joey Bada$$ is keeping the momentum going. The artist just shared a Tweet that included a snippet of his new track entitled “Land of The Free.”
The track was inspired by MLK, as Joey mentioned in the caption, which read,“Woke up from a dream where Dr. King told me to do my thing. #MLKDay #LANDOFTHEFREE New song out Friday 1/20 12AM EST. See you then.” Along with the caption, Bada$$ posted a video of MLK speaking and then a snippet of the new track plays:
“The 300 million of us still got no focus/Sorry America, but I will not be your soldier/Obama just wasn’t enough I need some more closure/And Donald Trump is not equipped to take this country over/Let’s face facts cause you know what’s the real motives/In the land of the free, it’s for the free loaders/Leave us dead in the street they be the organ donors/They disorganized my people made us all loners/Still got the last names of our slave owners,” he raps.
According to the teaser video of the track, the release date of the full song is on 1/20. “See you then.” In the meantime, you can listen to a snippet of “Land of The Free” below.
