After some brief “inner turmoil” earlier this year, Public Enemy is refocused on their lifelong enemies — government-sanctioned oppression and racism.
With DJ Premier’s signature scratches and a bluesy vocal loop, Chuck D pulls no punches comparing President Trump’s administration to the Nazi Gestapo. But underneath the Trump evisceration is a call for everyone listening to make themselves heard in the voting booths.
“Our collective voice keep getting louder,” says Chuck D. ” The rest of the planet is on our side. But it’s not enough to talk about change. You have to show up and demand change.
” Folks gotta vote like their live depends on it, cause it does.”
“Public Enemy tells it like it is,” added Flavor Flav. “It’s time for him to go.”
