Joe Budden: Freedom Freestyle

A week of songs inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement

A remix of Beyonce, and Kendrick Lamar’s “Freedom” this piece is filled with references to the Black Lives Matter movement as well as actual video content from many of the murders and assaults on people of color from the past few years. The work is combined with Jesse Williams’ incredibly powerful BET Awards speech about cultural appropriation.

“Land of the free, the home of the brave/Can’t let us be, we’ve grown from slaves/It’s there if you want to read/I mean it’s all in the page”

cw: strong language, violence, murder, blood, disturbing images
