Jay Z Drops New Song Addressing Police Brutality

(AllHipHop News) Jay Z’s on a roll and continues dropping joints with a new song, “Spiritual.”

The song, released on Tidal, talks about coming up from rag to rich.

“I am not poison, just a boy from the hood that got my hands in the air, don’t shoot, I just wanna do good, “Jay Z says on the song.

The mogul explained the reasoning for the song on Tidal:

I made this song awhile ago, I never got to finish it.
Punch (TDE) told me I should drop it when Mike Brown died, sadly I told him, “this issue will always be relevant.” I’m hurt that I knew his death wouldn’t be the last……
I’m saddened and disappointed in THIS America – we should be further along.
WE ARE NOT.
I trust God and know everything that happens is for our greatest good, but man…. it’s tough right now.
Blessings to all the families that have lost loved ones to police brutality.

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”
– Fredrick Douglas

Beyonce, Jay’s wife and pop star, also addressed the issue on Thursday. “It is up to us to take a stand and demand that they ‘stop killing us,” she said on her site with a link to contact local Congress people.
