With the Paralympics well under way, I’ve got to congratulate the creatives over at Channel 4 for using Public Enemy’s “Harder Than You Think” as the anthem for the marketing campaign for the Paralympics.
Here’s the official video of “harder than you think”, from their 2007 album “how you sell soul to a soulless people who sold their soul? in case you never saw it before:
“Check the facts expose those cats
Who pose as heros and take advantage of blacks
Your governments gangster so cut the crap
A war goin on so where you at?
Fight the power comes great responsiblity
F the police but whos stoppin you from killin me?”
Public Enemy released their latest album “most of my heroes still don’t appear on no stamp” recently, I recommend it and support the best politically concious rap group of all time.
