In case you’ve been living under a rock, Ferguson, MO is currently a war zone. While many artists have kept as far away from this controversy as possible, J. Cole has created a touching piece in tribute to Michael Brown and those who suffered police brutality. There’s some vocal sampling directly from the protests about halfway through the track. It’a powerful tune that straddles Indie and Rhythm & Blues. There’s a plea within the tune that I hope we can all heed. Let us all be free to live our lives without fear of repression by those who have sworn to serve & protect. (via This Song Is Sick)
