Joey Bada$$ has unveiled his new music video for “Like Me” featuring BJ the Chicago Kid, the latest single off his excellent debut album, B4.Da.$$. Directed by Nathan R. Smith, it’s a powerful visual echoing the tragedies of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and countless young black men who endure a vicious cycle of police brutality simply because of their skin color.

The New York MC spoke about the clip, saying, “In the video, the hot-headed guy, he gets killed by the police with a gun in his hand. And me, the cool guy, who is away from all the violence, I still end up being mixed in the loop — just being a victim because of my surroundings or where I’m from.” Watch it below.
