Joey Bada$$ brought a potent political persona to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for a performance of his single "Land of the Free."

Clad in the same bandana flag as he waved in the Mad Max-inspired music video, Joey's firm stances on the issues and disillusionment struck a chord with Colbert's audience.

The performance is to promote Joey's forthcoming ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$ album, set for release this Friday.

In addition to "Land of the Free," the album also features the recently leaked "Rockabye Baby" with ScHoolboy Q and is said to also feature a collaboration with J. Cole. Being that this Friday also sees new releases from Tech N9ne and Kendrick Lamar, it's going to be quite the day for hip-hop fans.
