J. Cole Drops "Be Free" in Honor of Mike Brown

Artists like Public Enemy used rap as a platform to speak out against public issues. Twenty-five years later it doesn’t seem like much has changed. J. Cole released "Be Free" due to Mike Brown's death in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as other social and racial injustices faced in society daily. The emotional track includes audio from the key witness's recollection of the tragic scene. Shout out to J. Cole for using his voice to express the emotions that thousands share regarding the tragic incident in the Midwest.
