“It’s weak to speak and blame somebody else/When you destroy yourself...”
Words to live by.
A classic in every sense of the word, Public Enemy’s “Welcome To The Terrordome” has for the last twenty years stood paramount among hip-hop’s most seminal works, many of which were brought to life in those peak years between the late 80s and the early 90s. This remix by Meat Beat Manifesto's Jack Dangers isn’t an improvement to the song, but it’s an interesting reconsideration. Chuck D, whose broken through his fiftieth year, still carries himself like he’s in his 20s, showing anyone skipping on down the roads he’s paved what it means to be a frontman. His shoes have yet to be worn by anyone else.
For those that will point to Flavor Flav’s career-crippling turn as a reality television joke, he’s deemed sample-worthy as far as this video’s concerned.
