Hip Hop Newsletter, Vol. III

(via salon)

Hip-hop pioneers Public Enemy are still fighting the powers that be. The group, known for anthems including "Don't Believe the Hype" and "Fight The Power," will take on President Bush with their new CD-DVD, "Son of a Bush," scheduled for May 6 release.

The title track, which first appeared on last year's "Revolverlution," criticizes both the current president and his father. Among the lyrics: "Have you forgotten/I been through the first term of rotten/The father, the son/and the holy Bush... I told y'all when the first Bush was tappin' my phone... Can't truss 'em."

So we have "Son of a Bush" and "Hail to the Thief" so far. Is it me, or is W turning into something of a popular culture muse?
My muse is still the Hitch. I saw this on somebody else's blog, but you snooze you lose, and thus when I form my grrl punk band we will be called "Hitchens Youth."
