Joey Badass announced the release of a new track Friday in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.
On MLK Day, many African Americans took the time to reflect on the past and what the future holds as Donald Trump and his cronies are set to take over the White House. Joey Badass took to Twitter to announce that he woke up from a dream, where Martin Luther King, Jr. appeared to him to relay a special message. In turn, Badass will release a new track called "Land Of The Free," Friday at noon. The release will coincide with Trump's inauguration as the 45th President of the United States of America.
In the video above, MLK gives a historic speech to a congregation of civil rights militants. Near the end, a snippet from Badass' new track plays over the old footage as the screen fades to black. The cover art for his new project appears: a crowd of African slaves. The beat is reminiscent of a 2Pac classic. The Brooklyn rapper spits "Obama just wasn't enough, I need some more closure; and Donald Trump is not equipped to take this country over."
The Pro Era emcee's star is rising; his track "Devastated" went gold earlier this month.
