Jay Z Speaks On Police Brutality With New Single “spiritual”

jay z

Recently we have seen Hov pop up on the remix to Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s hit “All The Way Up” and DJ Khaled’s new single with Future, “I Got The Keys.” Now Jay Z, in the wake of the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castilen releases his first solo single in three years. In a statement on Tidal he explains the origins of the somber track.

I made this song a while 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.
