So we are a music blog, not a news website, so it felt a little weird reporting on the tragic killing of the unarmed man by a police officer and surrounding events happening in Ferguson, Missouri, yet when J. Cole, a rapper who we've featured extensively on our site decides to release a song dedicated solely to it, it felt even worse not reporting on the subject.
J. Cole delivers this new song "Be Free" which his a quite a powerful 4 minute ballad over a simple piano line that couldn't set the mood anymore right. We hear an unbelievably passionate sounding Cole on the break of tears simply fed up with the corrupted actions of his country.
Here is a statement from J. Cole himself to go with the song touching on "tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men."
There was a time in my life when I gave a fuck. Every chance I got I was screaming about it. I was younger. It's so easy to try to save the world when you're in college. You got nothing but time and no responsibility. But soon life hits you. No more dorms, no more meal plan, no more refund check. Nigga need a job. Nigga got rent. Got car note. Cable bill. Girlfriend moves in and becomes wife. Baby on the way. Career advances. Instagram is poppin. Lebron leaves Miami. LIFE HITS. We become distracted. We become numb. I became numb. But not anymore. That coulda been me, easily. It could have been my best friend. I'm tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don't give a fuck if it's by police or peers. This shit is not normal. I made a song. This is how we feel.
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.

Breakout UK producer and DJ Mat Zo who's unable to stick with one style or genre has always wanted to do things his own way, so estasblishing his own imprint within the electronic world only made sense.
