Public Enemy Performs A Fight The Power Medley In Brooklyn (Video)
Jimmy Kimmel closed out his week-long stay in Brooklyn, New York for “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” There, he bid adieu a week (that also included an interesting Jay Z interview) in style. On Friday night’s show (into Saturday morning), Kimmel called upon a Hip-Hop group closely associated with BK—even though they aren’t from the borough.
Thanks to Do The Right Thing, and the Spike Lee-directed “Fight The Power” video, Strong Island’s Public Enemy helped bring Brooklyn, New York’s cultural diversity (and divides) to the 1980s mainstream. On Kimmel’s show, Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff, and the rest of the highly-active crew paid homage to the past in a jamming medley that included the aforementioned Fear Of A Black Planet hit, plus “911 Is A Joke” as well as their 2015 shake-down, “Man Plans, God Laughs.” Enjoy the greatness:
