J. Cole releases “Be Free,” a tribute song to Mike Brown who was murdered by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri on Saturday. This is what J. Cole has to say about the song…

“Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free” –J. Cole

While I think it’s awesome J. Cole is using his outlet, music, to open minds and inspire…I also believe the cover artwork is disrespectful. I’m sure the parents and loved ones of Michael Brown are tired of seeing the image of their loved one dead in cold blood laying in the middle of the street. At the same time it’s a reminder of how f*cked up police can be.
