'New National Anthem,' Featuring Skylar Grey - It?s a war going on outside that no Black man is safe from and T.I. uses his power to addresses America?s treatment of African-Americans as second-class citizens and the plague of young brothers being murdered and harassed daily. With Skylar Grey?s scathing hook, ?Home of the brave and free/ Free just to murder me,? Tip speaks truths like, ?Trayvon in a hoodie, walking through the neighborhood/ He didn?t do s**t to buddy, he didn?t have to die did he?/ I guess it?s because his dad was a judge in the city/ They didn?t want him in the pen with the thugs that could get him/ A jury of his peers said all was forgiven?" The pop production from Tommy Brown is exactly what the track calls for to get this message to resonate into the mainstream's thought process. (Photos from left: Robin Marchant/Getty Images for AWXI, Timothy H...
