Joey Bada$$ Releases Politically Charged Video, “Land of the Free’
Brooklyn’s Joey Bada$$ announced his sophomore album, All AmeriKKKan Bada$$ along with the trailer for the new project late last week. Now that the follow-up to 2015’s B4.Da.$$ is in motion, the Pro Era member released a powerful and politically charged video for his musing single, “Land of the Free.”
Directed by Nathan Smith, and Joey Bada$$, the new visuals follow a group of men and women facing a firing squad and Ku Klux Klan members. The gripping video plays right into Joey’s equally engrossing lyrics.
“Trickery in the system, put my ni**as in prison/All our history hidden, ain’t no liberty given/We all fit the description of what the documents written/We been lacking the vision and barely making a living/We too worried to fit in while they been benefiting,” raps Bada$$ on the song.
All-AmeriKKKan Bada$$ will be released on April 7 (Pro Era/Cinematic Music Group).
Fans can pre-order All-AmeriKKKan Bada$$ right now on iTunes to get his previous single “Devastated,” too.
