It’s interesting how time repeats itself. The extremely popular hit ‘Fight The Power’ by Public Enemy hit radio’s back in 1989 and now it’s back for another go-around, because times call for it.
The original ‘Fight The Power’ was featured on the soundtrack album for Spike Lee’s ‘Do the Right Thing’ and ‘Fear of a Black Planet’ in 1989. Songs that are similar to ‘Fight The Power’ have also been revived to fit our times such as, YG sampling ‘FTP’ (F**k The Police), which was originally by NWA (N***a’s Wit Attitude) of the same title back in 1988. Check out the video below.
This time around Public Enemy taps Nas and Black Thought for this classic remix. On Saturday June 27th, The Roots hosted the 13th Annual Roots Picnic, virtual style. The virtual picnic featured artists such as H.E.R. , Lil Baby, SZA, Earthgang and more. There were special appearances by Michelle Obama, Chris Paul, Tracee Ellis Ross and many more.
