Song Spotlight Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday: “Shut ’em Down” by Public Enemy


The government is still shut down right? Appropriate or not, this is a classic rap banger. This is the song conspiracy theorists would say Obama is bumpin’ in the oval office right now. I love Chuck D’s voice/delivery, and how can you possibly hate on FLAAAAVOR FLAAAAAV!?!?!? The scratching break in between the second chorus and third verse (and everywhere else in the song) just KILLS it. I’d like to thank Madden NFL 2010 (the best Madden) for putting this song on your impeccable soundtrack, which not only introduced me to Public Enemy, but also B.o.B. and Black Sabbath’s Paranoid album. Listen to this song and get jacked. It’s a good mood to be in.
