Public Enemy Return With Anti-Trump Song ‘State Of The Union (STFU)’

Hip-hop legends Public Enemy released a new single, “State Of The Union {STFU)” last Friday taking on President Donald Trump.

The DJ Premier-produced track, which does not mention the President by name, has arrived with an accompanying video that contains footage from nationwide protests that were held following the killings of George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks.

“Here’s another scare/ Keep them hands in the air/ Better not breathe/ You dare not dare,” Chuck D raps in the three-minute song.

“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 in a statement. “Folks gotta vote like their lives depend on it, ’cause it does.”

“Public Enemy tells it like it is,” added Flavor Flav. “It’s time for him to go.”

Chuck D recently revealed that Flavor Flav’s recent firing from Public Enemy was in fact an elaborate hoax to help promote a new album from his Enemy Radio project.

“We takin’ April Fools,” Chuck said. “We takin’ it over. It’s April Flav Chuck Day.”

Speaking to HipHopDX earlier this month, Chuck D said, “If you don’t really feel it’s conducive to say certain things, you just stay f**king quiet until you find the right words for it. And right now, there are no words for this sh*t. I got no voice at this moment, because every single emotion young people have is justified right now. It’s emotion.”
