Public Enemy Weighs in on Immigration Question w/ a New Song called ICE Breaker

Hip Hop artists have been on fire as of late. It seems like everyone is stepping up their game and making music that passionately speaks truth to power… One song that should not be overlooked is a brand new joint from Public Enemy called Ice Breakers.. It’s off their new album ‘The Evil Empire of Everything‘. This particular song addresses the issue of mass deportations and what its like for those who are living in immigrant communities and are literally being hunted by I.C.E.

The song features searing lyrics from Chuck D where he raps:

I KNOW A SILENT NATION IN DISLOCATION
FRUSTRATION FROM LEGISLATION
LED TO DEMOGRAPHIC IN ISOLATION
ANOTHER PARTICIPATION IN DECAPITATION
10-4 DIE RIVER DEEP MOUNTAIN HIGH
IS A WALL STUCK BETWEEN DYING AND DOING TIME
CANT IGNORE SMACK DAB BORDER WAR
AS THE BEAT GOES ON, WORDS FLOWED ON
I CAUGHT THE LAW
PYRAMIDS MACHU PICHU
THINGS THEY DONT TEACH YOU
DONT APOLOGIZE
YOU WERE HERE FIRST ON THIS EARTH
BEFORE THESE MILLENNIAL �COWBOYS CLAIMED THEIR TURF
NOW WHOS 1000 MILES AND RAN
DESERTED IN THE DESERT
WILD WILD WEST HURT TO THE DIRT
ANTI IMMIGRATION
AGAINST BROWN SWKIN
SOUNDS LIKE BROWN SHIRTS
SILENCED BY SO CALLED LEGAL VIOLENCE
SOMEBODY HAD PERMISSION
TO PUT HUMANS IN THIS CONDITION
THIS LAND IS WHOS LAND??
THEY MUSTVE FORGOT
KICKING THE BLACK IN THE ASS
WHILE KEEPING THE BROWN OUT
THIS ONE SIDED LAW MAKES ME SCREAM AND SHOUT

Chuck is joined  by The Impossebulls, Sekreto, Kyle Jason & True Math who all come with heat both in English and Spanish..Its good to see a group like PE keep it 100 when it comes to issues of the day..

ICE Breakers is actually the second song they did on the topic of immigration, when Arizona passed the anti-immigrant SB1070 law the group did a song called Tear Down That Wall ..Looking forward to peeping the video..for this new song…
