J. Cole Writes New Song In Honor Of Mike Brown

Published

on

J. Cole has written a song entitled, “Be Free” for Mike Brown, the 18-year-old African-American who was shot and killed by a Ferguson, MO police officer last week.

“Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free,” Cole wrote in the description to the song which he posted on SoundCloud.

The shooting has brought much attention to police brutality and racial profiling and has sparked protests in both small and large cities all across the United States. In a statement attached to the song on Cole’s official blog, the 29-year-old rapper opens up about becoming desensitized to hearing about blacks being killed.

“There was a time in my life when I gave a f*ck. Every chance I got I was screaming about it. I was younger. It’s so easy to try to save the world when you’re in college. You got nothing but time and no responsibility. But soon life hits you. No more dorms, no more meal plan, no more refund check. N*gga need a job. N*gga got rent. Got car note. Cable bill. Girlfriend moves in and becomes wife. Baby on the way. Career advances. Instagram is poppin. Lebron leaves Miami. LIFE HITS. We become distracted. We become numb. I became numb. But not anymore. That coulda been me, easily. It could have been my best friend. I’m tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don’t give a f*ck if it’s by police or peers. This shit is not normal.”

In the song, Cole sings “All we wanna do is break the chains off/ all we wanna do is be free,” over excerpts from news reports about killing.
