After teasing the song along with a tribute for MLK Day, Joey Bada$$ has shared a new single, "Land of the Free." The song is pretty explicitly political and focuses on systemic racial inequity, touching on everything from the prison industrial complex, to police brutality, to our incoming president-elect.

Sorry America, but I will not be your soldier. Obama just wasn't enough, I need some more closure. And Donald Trump is not equipped to take this country over he raps. Then later on: Trickery in the system, put my niggas in prison / All our history hidden, ain't no liberty given. For what it's worth, he's also rocking a "Make AmeriKKKa suck again" tee in the artwork. Listen to the song here.
