Last night, Joey Bada$$ performed "Land of the Free" on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Joey begins his performance on his knee, rapping, "You know sometimes I don't think they truly understand me ya know...because they don't."

"I'm just a black spade spawned out the nebula," the Brooklyn native rapped while being backed by a live band, and rocking an oversized American flag. The video for "Land of the Free" was released a few weeks ago—it artistically showcases police brutality and racism in America.

Joey's  new album All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ drops Friday, April 7 and features from J. Cole, Styles P, Chronixx, ScHoolboy Q, and more. Watch his performance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert above.
