Chuck D, B-Real & Rage Against The Machine Will Not Silently Watch The World Go To Hell (Video)
The Prophets Of Rage took 2016 by storm. A new chapter in the careers of Chuck D, B-Real, P.E.’s DJ Lord, and three-fourths of Rage Against The Machine was welcomed by fans of Hip-Hop, Hard Rock, Funk, and simply lovers of woke messages.
Following last year’s The Party’s Over EP, Prophets are back with a single that signals some of their best work yet. “Unf*ck The World” is as powerful as its message. “No hatred / F*ck racists / Blank faces / Time’s changing / One nation / Unification / Vibration / Unf*ck the world!” is the chorus. The MCs follow with verses describing just what’s effing up the globe, and the mind-frame necessary to bring change.
Moreover, the independent act launched the single with a video directed by Michael Moore (Bowling For Columbine, Roger & Me, Sicko). The Oscar-winning filmmaker has politics that appear to align with that of Mistachuck, Dr. Greenthumb, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford. The imagery intercuts some Prophets footage with so many dirty deeds of the last year. Throughout, Moore’s edit returns to a sausage and processed meat factories, perhaps symbolizing the scraps, fat, and discards we are being fed by featured politicians, hateful pulpits, and tone-deaf corporations.
