Common - Letter To The Free (Video)

Common continues to use his voice to get the message across about the institution we called prison. After working on the documentary film "13th", providing soundtrack, and being very vocal against what Trump has to offer, Common delivers a new video for "Letter To The Free" that continues to voice his thought on the justice system. Featured on his latest album, this new visual brings forth the central message of the song with imagery of musicians perform in a empty jail cell. In an quote to Billboard, Common says, "When I say, "We ain’t seen as human beings with feelings/ Will the U.S. ever be us, Lord willing," that hasn’t changed with the election of Donald Trump. Those things are there. Now it’s just probably going to be in our face even more, and we know we have to resolve it and be the vessel for the change". Watch the video below.
