Joey Bada$$ 'Land Of The Free' by Nathan R. Smith & Joey Bada$$
The powerful video for Joey Bada$$'s Land Of The Free, directed by Nathan R. Smith and the rapper himself, tackles the state of play in America today head-on, in a succession of contrasting scenes, shot in some spectacular locations.
It spans from Joey telling young black children that "Donald Trump is not equipped to take this country over", wrapping himself in an adapted version of Old Glory, and disturbing scenes of white police and officials assembling in a firing squad to shoot a line of unarmed black people.
The video winds down with Klansmen lighting a cross on fire, the bodies of those shot illuminated by the flames. But it ends on a more uplifting note, with the rapper and the children smiling and playing in a field.
