Public Enemy – Fight The Power

Still furious after all these years, the most seminal hip hop track from the most seminal film: Fight the Power by Public Enemy is the perfect match for Spike Lee’s incendiary, powder keg of an urban movie, Do The Right Thing, which is 30 years old today, and which is a movie that literally changed the world – Barack Obama took Michelle to see it on their first date. Spike is still at the top of his game, if you watch She’s Gotta Have It on Netflix right now, still inventive, still with loads to say, still got the groove and the eye. He directed the video, too. What a movie, what a tune, what a video.
