Fight The Power: Remix 2020 (feat. Nas, Rapsody, Black Thought, Jahi, YG, & Questlove) - Public Enemy feat. Nas, Rapsody, Black Thought, Jahi, YG & ?uestlove

This is revolution shit

(Uh, yah)
C'mon and get down
(Uh, yah)
C'mon and get down
(Uh)
No

The year is 2020, the number
Another summer (get down!)
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hittin' the heart 'cause I know you got soul
(Brothers and sisters)

The Information Age
Got 'em seein' what's really wrong with these racist days (uh)
I honor the strong and pity the weak
Your thoughts run your life, be careful what you think

Haiti beat France century 17 (uh)
Salute Toussaint and Dessalines
And I do love France, know what I mean?
It's the system I'm talkin', nobody's agreein'

They say, "Suicide," when dead bodies are swingin'
Cowards are huntin' black men, that's what I'm seein'
How many toasters have been burnt down?
And once Central Park was a thrivin' black town

Yo, Chuck, I'm fightin' the power right now
Thanks to you, Flav and P-E, puttin' it down
Puttin' your life on the line so I could rap now
The next generation still singin', "Fight the Power"

Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
We got to fight the powers that be

Police think they reign sick none over the law (yeah)
When they give us short sticks but we really need a long
To the boys in the hood, duckin' bullets and batons
From boys in the hood, triple Ks on they arm (yeah, oh)

Four fingers on my palm screamin', "Fight" (oh, damn!)
Change the policy, before I buy back our property (yeah)
You love Black Panther but not Fred Hampton (oh)
Word to the Howards and the Aggies and the Hamptons (yeah)

They book us, won't book us, I'm booker
T. Washington, George killed, for a 20 (pen)
Think about it (think), that's 2000 pennies
The value of black life the cost of goin' to Wendy's (uh)
For a four-quarter burger, ended in murder (yeah)
Fight for Breonna and the pain of her mother, gotta

Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
We got to fight the powers that be

Yeah, generations just how long we been at war
The revolution on all platforms
You break a man's mind in his back
Your solidarity is what I'm wearin' all black for (uh)

For comrades who done fought without me
It's not to try and change y'all thoughts about me
Or to redirect your reports about me
Dear white people, you should take a course about me

'Cause, is it the long ding-a-ling? Four-finger ring?
The sciences and the arts, the songs we can sing
I really wanna know why y'all so scared
Prolly 'cause the promised land, we almost there

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 (uh)
Get your bodies back from ransom (C'mon!)
And all black hands up for the anthem (uh)

Fight the power
Fight the power
(Yo, yo, check this out, man)
Bring that beat back, man
In 2, 3, 4, hit it!

People, people, stronger than this evil
Smashin' your power structure, melanin royal, regal
System designed to kill and unprotect
Worldwide, hit the streets just to get some respect

Our fight and our rights for freedom will never waver
But justice Breonna Taylor, salute Chuck and Flava
Feel the same anger since Radio Raheem died
Black power to the people, push forward, pride (boom!)

Fight power like it's the opp, though
Born to fight, I made it off the block, though
Thought he had a gun and he was black, that's the combo
The police killed George havin' a convo (George)

They killed Malcolm X, they killed Doctor King (Doctor King)
They gave us guns and dope, they wanna stop our kings
They tryna erase our history, stop and think
History class ain't tell us 'bout Juneteeth

Cops don't give a damn about a negro
Pull the trigger, kill a negro, he's a hero
Fuck livin' life on welfare
The last one who cared was Obamacare

Round twelve, nose kinda bloody, gotta keep fightin'
Trump flew to North Korea, they respect violence
If you ain't tryna have your city on fire
Put some respect on our name, we come from gold and diamonds

Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
We got to fight the powers that be
(Yo, yo)

Elvis was a hero to most (uh)
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was simple and plain
(Motherf-, him and John Wayne)

'Cause I'm black and I'm proud
I'm ready, I'm hyped plus I'm amped
Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps (uh)
Sample a look back you look and find

Nothin' but rednecks for 4000 years if you check
("Don't Worry, Be Happy") was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
Get it (let's get this party started right)

Right on, c'mon!
What we got to say (yeah)
Power to the people no delay (uh)
Make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be
