Joey Bada$$ is a rapper outta Brooklyn, New York. On his birthday, January 20, he released “Land of the Free“, a single off his “ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$” album, which questions if America is really the land of the free.
“Land of the Free”
“The first step in the change is to take notice/ Realize the real games that they tried to show us/ 300-plus years of them cold shoulders/ yet 300 million of us still got no focus/ Sorry America, but I will not be your soldier/ Obama just wasn’t enough, I just need some more closure/ And Donald Trump is not equipped to take this country over, let’s face facts cause what’s the real motives?”
Bada$$’s political and social commentary hits home, as it exposes some of America’s flaws, corruption, and inequality, on the first day of President Trump’s Make America Great again era.
“Can’t change the world unless we change ourselves. Die from the sicknesses if we don’t seek the health. All eyes be my witness when I speak what’s felt, full house on my hands, the cards I was dealt. Three K’s, two A’s in Amerikkka. I’m just a Black Spade spawn out the nebula.”
