LL Cool J Drops Powerful Freestyle
The hip-hop veteran released a must-watch and thought-provoking freestyle earlier this year, addressing the death of George Floyd and nationwide protests.
“For 400 years you had your knees on our necks/A garden of evil with no seeds of respect/In America’s mirror, all she sees is regret/Instead of letting blood live, they begging for blood lead/Revenge is a dish that’s served on platelets/Transfusion or confusion, abusing our intellect/I can’t be bought with a 1200 dollar check/Even though 1200 dollars can make a meal stretch/My mama wasn’t rich but she earned my respect/She made a little bit of money for a lot of blood, tears and sweat/Jumping up and down on police cars, I’m vexed” -LL Cool J’s Instagram
