J. Cole Visits Mike Brown’s Death Site [Photos]


The events transpiring in Ferguson, Mo. after Mike Brown’s tragic death have showed the importance of solidarity among the local citizens, those who came to town to join or capture protesting effort, and others keeping tabs remotely via news outlets and social media. Yesterday, J. Cole and his Dreamville clique visited town to pay respect to the 18–year–old and protesters on the front lines.

The Fayetteville rhymer’s appearance follows his commemorative track, “Be Free,” in which he waxes captivating poetics detailing how Brown’s untimely demise affected him. Alongside Dreamville partner in rhyme Bas, Cole reflected at the site of the incident. He also spoke with the people and Capt. Ronald S. Johnson.

Hopefully more rappers with a voice of Cole’s magnitude will chime in. And no, we don’t mean this, folks.
