Chuck D of Prophets of Rage and Public enemy talked about the Prophets being a political band, telling Metal Injection:
Prophets of Rage have released their self-titled debut this September, you can stream it in full below.
"We're not afraid of that category, but what I'm saying is what makes a non-political band.
"Everything is political once you pay attention to something. If you're 25 years old and try to pay for your apartment, you better get fucking political in sort sort of way.
"You start to wonder why you can't pay the rent. I think it is misunderstood when people think that younger people don't want to hear what is happening and what effects them.
"And I think Rage Against the Machine, Cypress Hill, and Public Enemy spoke to that, telling people to make their own independent decisions.
"The minute that someone thinks that they are to the left or to the right, you give them a international point of view and they'll be surprised.
"Most people in the United States of America are isolated to these territories, but we've played three continents in front of 2.7 million people.
"So we're going to places where they're left, right, center, whatever. They're like, you're from the United States, so what the fuck is going on with the guy that you have as president."
