After previously coming together for “My Yout” & “On & On”, Brooklyn MC Joey Bada$$ once more links up with Maverick Sabre for “We Don’t Wanna Be,” a politically tinged jazzy cut where newspaper clippings of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and general racial unrest across the world set the tone.
The black and white visuals paint a town on the edge, ready to riot while Sabre sings about having no weapons on him except for his ID.
“Me and Joey just connected from the first day we met, and being in the studio together is always inspiring,” Sabre told Complex. “This song right here is an anti-oppression, anti-systematic song — a voice for what’s going on in our world and the current climate, which we are all living and dealing with daily.”
