Having been embroiled in his own legal battles over the years, T.I. understandably has a very strong opinion about what it means to be a Black male living in the United States. On the song’s poignant hook, we’re reminded that America is the “Home of the brave and free,” which means that police shouldn’t be “free just to murder me.” Now, more than a week following the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, artists with plenty to lose are standing up for what they believe is right.
