Ras Kass addresses the recent wave of police violence on "Promised Land."


Like many rappers, Ras Kass felt compelled to speak out on the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police officers. He speaks on the plight of the black man in America, the Black Lives Matter movement, and racial injustice in a new track called "Promised Land."

Production on "Promised Land" comes courtesy of Statik Selektah's steady-handed boom-bap sensibilities. Statik deploys an eerie bell vamp and splits scratching duties with inDJnous. Washeyi Choir provides the song's vocals.

Ras Kass been spitting unfiltered truths for 20 years. Listen to "Promised Land" and share your thoughts in the comments.

Quotable Lyrics

Who let the dogs out the Chinese takeout
El Chapo, how I breakout
The underground escape route
Stakeout, castrate rappers for the cake
And bury yo ass under Drake's house
