Wow! Joey Bada$$ blew our mind with his new song “Like me”.

Cause every time I make a move they be sweatin’ me 
They want another black man in penitentiary 
It’s even hard for that man standing next to me 
Cause he could catch a bullet that was truly meant for me 
It’s like every step bring me close to destiny 
And every breath I get closer to the death of me 
I’m just tryna carry out my own legacy 
But that place I call home (It ain’t lettin’ me)

These lyrics went straight to our souls!! As a New Yorker,  Joey Bada$$, made his performance relevant to the time we are living in and took a strong stand using his art and platform to speak the truth.
