Public Enemy have returned with a new protest song called ‘State of the Union (STFU)’. Produced by DJ Premier, the new track arrives with a video featuring footage of recent protests and police brutality directed by David C. Snyder. Check it out below. The track is also available to download for free via the group’s website.
Speaking of the track, Chuck D said: “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. Folks gotta vote like their lives depend on it, cause it does.”
Flavor Flav added: “Public Enemy tells it like it is. It’s time for him to GO.”
Back in April, the group revealed that their split from longtime member Flavor Flav was in fact an elaborate April Fools’ hoax, a move which was met with criticism. Both Chuck D and Flav perform on the new track.
