Richard Raw ~ Public Enemy ((Single))

The song Public Enemy was written in the spirit of arguably the greatest group in the history of rap music. Public Enemy revolutionized the sound of rap music with their conscious lyrics, militant stance and innovative production style. After listening to several hits from the group, i decided to create a song that touched on a myriad of issues dealing with our community. Hip Hop needs a "Cultural Maintenance Component" and i am doing my best to play my part by making people aware of the uphill battle we face in this corporate controlled industry. Its time for our culture to address real issues by using our art as a tool for social change. We must "Fight The Power" because three decades later, we as rap artist are still viewed as a Public Enemy!

Pusha T Freestyles on Funk Flex

Anything Spanish, got me speakin' Speakin Spanglish
Money's UNIversal, that's the only Language
The dream ain’t die, only some real nagas
We was born to mothers who couldn’t deal with us
Left by fathers who wouldn’t build with us
I had both mine home, let’s keep it real nagas
My better half chose a better path, applaud him

Younger brother me, a spoiled child, I fought him
I heard that the d'evil’s new playground is boredom
The California top just falls back like autumn
And they say I’m on the verge of winning
I’ll claim victory when Malice on the verge of sinning...
