Video: Public Enemy “RLTK” f/ DMC [of Run-DMC]

Chuck D & DMC in a still from the video for Public Enemy - "RLTK"

You had me at Public Enemy featuring DMC –but like all the recent PE joints I’ve heard, this one stands up to the kinds of expectations those names create in the mind of a long-term rap fans. Chuck & Darryl make good use of the younger generation’s rediscovery of 808s, taking the mean-mugging bass sonics as a good excuse to drop some impactful old school cadences and some–well, RLTK–about our current situation (“never have so many been screwed by so few”). Watch below and cop Public Enemy’s new LP Most Of My Heroes Still Don’t Appear On No Stamps on iTunes now.
