Video: @JoeBudden - Freedom (Freestyle)
Joe Budden lamented to Complex for their exclusive premiere of “Freedom”:
“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. #BlackLivesMatter #YallLivesMatter #OurLivesMatter ... 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”
