Wu-Tang clan have dropped the video to accompany their title track “A Better Tomorrow” off their new LP, and it’s pretty emotional. Using footage from Ferguson and Eric Garner protests, and excerpts from speeches by President Obama and Martin Luther King, the video illustrates the outrage surrounding rights for Black individuals in America.
The song discusses how far America has to go with regard to racial equality, focusing on the unlawful slayings of Black youths by police officers. Spliced with the chants of protesters saying Eric Garner's last words “I can’t breathe” and the Ferguson chant “hands up, don’t shoot”, the video is a deeply poignant message on the state of the nation.
Watch the video below:
