T.I. offers his voice on the recent events in American Friday night with the release of "We Will Not," a track that finds the Atlanta veteran charged up and spittin' that real over a booming backdrop from Mars and Mike & Keys.
"We sick of the garbage you kicking and teaching/And lynching us, locking us up for no reason/And killing us no consequences, convictions, you serious?" he raps, which plays off the recent decision on the Freddie Gray case where all charges were dropped against the remaining police officers.
Last month, T.I. took part in a widely-publicized peaceful protest in Atlanta where thousands marched through the streets and blocked off Interstate 75 and part of Interstate 85. Clearly the rapper wants to make it known he's here to support protesters, and "We Will Not" serves as a rally cry for those continuing the efforts.
In the visual, T.I. watches from his couch as news tragically plays out across his television and disturbing images of shots being fired at a protest in Ferguson overwhelm the screen. Watch the video exclusively on Tidal above, or stream the song below before it drops as part of his forthcoming Us or Else EP.
