Pro Era member and Brooklyn resident Joey Bada$$ has release a new track titled “Land Of The Free”. It was the perfect time to take a political stance on a track, as it was released yesterday on the day of the inauguration of the new US president Donald Trump. He puts a microscope on America and the popular phrase “land of the free”, expressing that America is not as “free” as you may think. There is a lot of work that needs to be done to make thing better.
Production came from Kirk Knight and Adam Pallin. The beat has a smooth vibe. They use a synth nicely to add texture to the track. The drums remind me the Biggie track “Juicy”.
Joey gets deep saying:
Still got the last names of our slave owners
He takes shots at the new president Donald Trump saying:
Donald Trump is not equipped to take this country over
And also states:
Sorry America but I will not be your soldier
I like that a young cat like Joey has a socially conscious mindset. He uses his lyrics to send a message. A lot of emcees, young and old are rapping about money, women, cars, jewelry and other superficial things. It’s refreshing to hear a different perspective. Great food for thought.
