Prophets of Rage – the supergroup boasting members of Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real – warn of encroaching fascism in the band’s surprise new song “Made With Hate.”
A portion of “Made With Hate” originally appeared within “The Ballot or the Bullet,” a medley released in November 2018 that contained snippets of three unreleased tracks, the middle of which has now been released in full.
“Hear the cameras click / And the shots go boom / Money talks, God walks out the room / See now the news / A million clicks consume / That fake-ass bullshit, y’all assume,” Chuck D proclaims on the fiery track.
The rapper later warns at song’s end, “This is not a drill, this is fascism, it is here, poised as a government takeover threat. Your region of the world, it is not alarmist to say these things. It is simple truth.”
