X-Vandals & Chuck D Always Have A Plan B Up Their Sleeves (Video)
As leader of Public Enemy, Chuck D is no stranger to getting involved with some politically charged, socially aware Hip-Hop. Enter into the fold, New York’s self coined “NuYoRicans,” the X-Vandals, who consider themselves a refurbishing of political Punk Rock and Hardcore Hip-Hop into an all new genre of their own that tells the story of their rough and tumble upbringing in the streets of the Big Apple. Mixed together, the similarly passionate artists of past and present have brought together some critically conscious bars in the form of the X-Vandals single, “Plan B,” from their sophomore album, GhettoBlaster.
The strong willed, “Power To The People” motif spills out of this one like oil from a tanker as the X-Vandals and Chuck D spread their message of empowerment through stitched, yet juxtaposed, visuals of oppression and democracy to drive their story home.
