Shuffle Song Of The Day (3/24/18): “Harder Than You Think” By Public Enemy

“Harder Than You Think” was the lead single from legendary rap group Public Enemy’s 2007 20 year anniversary album How You Sell Soul To A Soulless people Who Sold Their Soul?. In typical Public Enemy fashion, it contains an amazing sample with some trumpets that could wake a dead man up. Chuck D comes out spitting in his usual “fuck society” revolution style, while Flava Flav just says random stuff per usual while wearing a giant clock around his neck (not pictured but you just know he’s wearing that clock). Now don’t get me wrong: I’m a Blue Lives Matter guy, but I’ve always loved Public Enemy and their logo. Having the outline of a cop in crosshairs is the most gangsta shit out there, and I would’ve definitely rocked a Public Enemy shirt with that logo on it if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m so white and my dad would kick my ass. It is possible like cops and rap music at the same time, just make sure you don’t take the lyrics seriously and actually put one in your crosshairs like a dumbass.

Favorite Lyrics

Rolling Stones of the rap game, not bragging,
Lips bigger than Jagger, not saggin’,
Spell it backwards, I’mma leave it at that,
That ain’t got nothing to do with rap,
Check the facts, expose those cats,
Who pose as heroes and take advantage of blacks,
Your government’s gangster, so cut the crap,
A war going on so where y’all at?

“Fight the Power” comes great responsibility,
“F the Police” but who’s stopping you from killing me?

Spitting riches, bitches, and this new thing about snitches,
Watch them asses move as the masses switches,
System dissed them but barely missed her,
My sole intention to save my brothers and sisters

Show no love so its easy to hate it,
Desecrated while the coroner waited,
Any given Sunday so where y’all rate it?,
Wit slavery, lynching, and them drugs infiltrated

Revolution means change, don’t look at me strange,
So I can’t repeat what other rappers be sayin’,
You don’t stand for something, you fall for anything,
Harder than you think: Its a beautiful thing
