Public Enemy: "I Shall Not Be Moved"

Leave it to Chuck D to own his age: "I work it/UH!/the senior circuit." Crafted by Chuck and Gary G-Wiz, this single (from Public Enemy's upcoming album, Most of My Heroes Still Don't Appear On No Stamp) is one of PE's toughest, leanest, weirdest tracks in years, live drums and pure-funk guitar leaning into fuzzy synth wobble worthy of Skrillex or Throbbing Gristle. Chuck can still hector with the best, dissing Clive Davis and bellowing "What good is learnin' from some record/ when y'all only listen to 15 seconds?" The Hard Rhymer would like you to get off his lawn and also to pay attention. It is welcome.
