In the wake of the trouble in Ferguson, St Louis following the tragic death of Michael Brown, J Cole has put pen to paper and written an emotional new song about his feelings on the issue, titled 'Be Free.' 

"And I'm in denial, and it don't take no x-ray to see right through my smile... There ain't no drink out there that can numb my soul" Cole sings over the sombre beat.

On his SoundCloud page the 'Crooked Smile' rapper posted a message to accompany the song; "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".
