Public Enemy Still Got Game & Chuck D Wants The Ball (Video)
Public Enemy already blessed fans with a free new album this summer. Nothing Is Quick In The Desert (Except Death) is still making its rounds. Meanwhile, in addition to Chuck D and DJ Lord’s ramping up with Prophets Of Rage towards a full-length album, P.E. stays moving.
The squad assists their RCS Music artist Antlive with “Give Me The Ball.” Nineteen years ago, P.E. made a slam dunk on the basketball court with “He Got Game.” Nothing has changed. Chuck, Professor Griff, and company appear in the video that cleverly weaves its metaphor of hoops and Hip-Hop. Both Chuck and Ant drop some jewels on B-ball history with the song. The music video uses archival footage (of both basketball and B-boys), with some gym shots, locker room sequences, and street exteriors. Chuck even fools around on the court a bit in the video, testing a spin-pass.
Public Enemy remains in the game, and great in the clutch.
This track appears on Ant’s La Flama Blanca LP.
