Usher & Nas Bring Police Brutality To Their Latest Song, “Chains” [Listen]

Leave it to Nas and Usher to create a groundbreaking song that takes on the issues of today while resurrecting the Hip Hop movement with style and lyricism.

Their newest song “Chains,” which is now on Tidal, is their latest single, and takes aim at police brutality. The soon-to-be hit highlights the issues that African Americans have had to face with law enforcement during the past years, using facial-recognition technology to bring their message home for viewers.

While watching the video, you will be urged not to move your eyes away from the screen as they show photos of the most recent victims of racially charged police brutality, such as Trayvon Martin and so many others. The interactive video only works if you don’t move your eyes, as instructed. If you begin doing other things on your computer or phone screen, then the video will stop.

“I am no prison commodity, not just a body you throw in a cell,” Nas raps.

“We’re still in chains. You put the shame on us,” Usher sings during the video.

Usher and Nas Target Police Brutality With 'Don't Look Away' Video
Usher, who just recently got remarried to Grace Miguel, plans to perform the song at the Tidal X: 10/20 concert, which is set to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on October 20th.

Proceeds made from the song are going to be donated to a donor-advised fund managed by Sankofa.org, a social-justice organization.

Rapper Nas recently made headlines after he was honored with the Harvard W.E.B. DuBois medal, along with Muhammad Ali and many other honorable and great men. The medals were meant to honor African Americans who have made a significant change in their communities throughout our history, culture, providing intellectual understanding as well as human rights awareness for those who have been left without a voice.
