Public Enemy Releases ‘Fight The Power’: Remix 2020
In a period where civil unrest is at an unsurpassed high out of the sheer need to survive, Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power” ends up being an immortal protest song that is similarly as pertinent as ever in 2020.
Back at the BET Awards this June, the group opened the show with the debut of the 2020 remix featuring Nas, Rapsody, Black Thought, YG, Jahi, and Questlove.
The track hit streaming services at a time a number of protests hit the streets requesting justice for Jacob Blake and the endless other Black Americans who’ve been victims of systemic racism and police brutality.
The song likewise dropped soon after updates on Public Enemy inking an arrangement with Def Jam for their prospective venture, What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down.
Look at the song beneath.
But look, I think of images that fuel my youth
Been influenced by Craig Hodges and Abdul-Rauf
Examples like Olympic, Black Power salutes
To Panther troops, I saw as I pursued my truth
If racism is the cancer, Black Thought’s the answer
Gotta get up off the back porch, emancipate your minds
Get your bodies back from ransom
And all black hands up for the anthem
