NEW YORK — They’re almost senior citizens but they’re back! In 1988, Chuck D and Flavor Flav — iconic members of Public Enemy — protested police brutality and racial injustice with their hit rap single “Fight the Power.” Now, 32 years later, they’re at it again. The hip-hop pioneers released a searing anti-Trump track on Juneteenth titled “State of the Union (STFU)” which contains besmirching lyrics labeling President Donald Trump a “White House killer” and “Nazi Gestapo Dictator.”

To be candid, the ’80s rap duo rip President Trump a new asshole for roughly 3 minutes.

The hook goes: “State of the Union, shut the f*ck up! Sorry-ass mothaf*cka, stay away from me!”

Chuck, 59, and Flav, 61, also drop bars imploring voters to “end this clown show” in the upcoming election. “Whatever it takes, rid this dictator,” Chuck raps. “POTUS my tail, ass debater. Prime-time Preemo, rhyme-time crime. Like no other in this lifetime. White house killer, dead in lifelines.

“Vote this joke out, or die tryin.'”

DJ Premier of Gang Starr produced the track.

  35. Heck yeah get them Chuck spit knowledge. Tell the people about the black caucus that can stop any legislation it wants until we get reparations and end systematic racism. Yeah tell them Chuck about 20 million plus aborted black babies. Tell them Chuck about the highest murder rate of any race. Tell em Chuck the racist history of the Democrats Party from Slavery, Jim Crow, Pro Segregation and Dixiecrats. Tell em Chuck about 70% parent rates and poor education. Tell em about the average kid graduates with a 8th grade reading level. Oh wait your going to talk about the same old stuff never mind it’s all Trumps fault and the Republicans. Tell em Chuck the policies Republicans made that are racist towards minorities. Tell em oh wait every city where a George Floyd or police brutality occurred had a Democrat mayor and a Democrat majority city counsel.
