MUSIC ISH: WATCH COMMON 'LETTER TO THE FREE' [VIDEO]

Common delivers the poignant video for “Letter to the Free.” The powerful song, which he created with Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper, addresses slavery and mass incarceration. Look for cameos from Andra Day and Bilal. “Letter to the Free” appears on Common’s latest album Black America Again as well as in Ava DuVernay’s Netflix documentary 13th.

“We dealt with the whole subject matter from slavery to Jim Crow to mass incarceration which is what we’re dealing with right now,” said Common. “We wanted to make something that was strong, unapologetic, but that was also hopeful.”
