With all the tragic events going on — from Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s murders to the ongoing scene in Dallas — JAY Z felt the need to speak his mind. And what better way to do it, than through music.
Recorded a year ago, “Spiritual” was originally going to be released when Mike Brown died, but Hov never finished it — and, unfortunately, he knew that “this issue will always be relevant.”
Check out a statement from Jay and hear “Spiritual” below.
On top of his own song, Jay also shared a playlist called “Songs For Survival” — which includes songs from Kanye West (“Ultra Light Beam”), Kendrick Lamar (“Alright”), Gil Scott-Heron (“The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”), Nina Simone (“Four Women”), and more.
