Public Enemy's "Can't Truss It"
June 13th, 2017

Chuck D in the video for "Can't Truss It," off of the album "Apocalypse '91... The Empire Strikes Black." The song deals with the continued oppression of the black community through economic and social pressures. In a 1991 interview with Melody Maker magazine, Chuck D expressed his frustration with the corporate controlled society. "'Can't Truss It' is about how the corporate world of today is just a different kind of slavery," Chuck D said. "We don't control what we create, And because of the media, we don't control the way we think or run our lives. We've got to limit working for a situation that's other than ours."
