“President Obama is a good man…in a bad Government.” – Chuck D, Public Enemy: video interview

As Mitt Romney reveals his reptilian-like underbelly in the run up to the 2012 Presidential Election, we revisit our recent interview with one of America’s most politically charged musical legends, Mr Chuck D.

Public Enemy were one of the most influential and important bands of the 80s and 90s. Marrying the politics of self reliance of the Black Panthers with the illest beats that had been heard by mankind at that date, they inspired a generation of black and white youth to unite, and fight the power. Chuck D, we salute you!

Hear his views on the current American administration, and the reasons why the American public must stay mobilised in the current political climate. Fingers crossed Chuck, fingers crossed…
