Hip Hop for the Revolution | Joe Budden - "Freedom"

Joe Budden took a break from beating up on Drake for a minute to beat up on white supremacy. 

Sometimes we need art in order to summarize all of those thoughts we are struggling to put down on paper and desperately attempting to communicate to white America. 

Joey connects all the dots of systemic racial oppression in this one video!

Song description from Joey's Soundcloud page:

"I was told there was once a world where slaves communicated with each other via music, and tho I wasn't present for that, the Hip-Hop I fell in love with always encouraged me to do the same (Thank you Public Enemy).... 

Let this act as an unfortunate reminder that times change and they don't.

I'm afraid to wonder what happens when we as a people decide to stop saying it. 

Some deem us threatening now by sheer design. 

We are not. 

We are loving, passionate, cultured and proud, even during unrest. 

However, with every life viciously and maliciously taken by costumed evil, we grow more and more afraid. 

What will occur when too many of us are afraid? #IfYouDontValueMyLifeEYEWill
#GodHelpUsAll #TheMissionIsGreat
