“I’m letting you know that there ain’t no gun they can make that can kill my soul.” J. Cole is on a different level these days. He performed a powerful version of “Be Free” on Late
Show with David Letterman that left everyone in the room stunned, including Dave (visibly). In the song, Cole addresses police violence, classism, materialism, Obama’s being rendered powerless by a system that was stacked against him and more. If you’re seeking music with a message, look no further.
