Joey Badass Gets Political in “Land of the Free” Video
Joey Bada$$ has released a powerful video for his "Land of the Free" single. The Pro Era member brings his politically charged track to life with visuals of men and women facing a firing squad and white authority figures shown to be members of the Ku Klux Klan. The evocative video pairs up well with the socially conscious rhymes of Joey Bada$$.
“Trickery in the system, put my niggas in prison/All our history hidden, ain't no liberty given/We all fit the description of what the documents written/We been lacking the vision and barely making a living/We too worried to fit in while they been benefiting/Every time you submitting, we all guilty, admit it/The Lord won't get you acquitted, but you still ask for forgiveness/Put opiates in syringes then inject his religion/How many times do I gotta tell you I'm a man on a mission/Many times I gotta tell you I don't need no permission/A human with super vision, ain't no living condition/I'm reaching out to my children, just hoping that they will listen,” Joey raps on the second verse.
"Land of the Free" will appear on Joey's highly anticipated album ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$, which is scheduled to drop on April 7 via Pro Era Records/Cinematic Music Group. Fans can pre-order the LP right now on iTunes to get instant access to the singles "Land of the Free" and "Devastated."
