In the midst of protests in support of slain teenager Michael Brown, T.I. debuts a new record called “New National Anthem.”

A patriotic and political-driven cut, the song features a powerful hook by Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Skylar Grey. On Tuesday, the Atlanta rapper opened up on the murder of Brown, shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, which has turned a quiet community into an unsettled place.

Look at us,” opens T.I. in an Instagram post. “America has created a monster. The result of ignoring & mishandling an already fragile spirited, recently enslaved, presently oppressed race/generation of people.”

Arriving this fall, T.I.’s ninth solo album Paperwork: The Motion Picture will feature appearances from Rick Ross, Iggy Azalea, Nipsey Hussle, Jeezy, The-Dream, Lil’ Boosie, Young Thug, Trae Tha Truth, Problem, and Pharrell, who serves as executive producer. Listen to the powerful “New National Anthem,” and read T.I.’s full message below.
