With all of the polarizing events taking place in Ferguson, Missouri in the past few days, it was only a matter of time before a big name hip-hop artist took to the mic to express their feelings. Not surprisingly that person is J. Cole as he just wishes everyone could “Be Free”.
Somber and sad, “Be Free” shows a deeper side of J. Cole which is only appropriate for these trying times. With stirring dialogue and sung verses by Cole, “Be Free” cuts deep and will provoke even more conversation about many different topics which the Ferguson shooting has spurred.
