To kick off the 2020 BET Awards, Public Enemy properly read the room and brought in Nas, Black Thought, Rapsody, YG and Jahi to revamp their classic song “Fight The Power.” As relevant now as it was 31 years ago, each emcee brings their own flavor to the 2020 version of the song.
The struggle just wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t soundtracked by Public Enemy. The group teams up with DJ Premier for “State of the Union (STFU)” and takes aim at the incompetence of the Trump Administration.
“Our collective voices keep getting louder. 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,” Chuck D said. Flavor Flav added: “Folks gotta vote like their lives depend on it, ‘cause it does.” “Public Enemy tells it like it is. It’s time for him to go.”
