Chuck D has teamed up with legendary soul singer Mavis Staples on a song that direct attacks today’s rap music and its lyrical content that does anything but instills pride in the black community. The song called “Give WE the Pride” is a track from Chuck D's recently released album The Black In Man.
Chuck D earlier this year, justifiably so, attacked Hot 97's Summer Jam Concert and urban radio in general for the deterioration of the hip hop culture. When referring to urban radio he said "get it right or be gone." At the time of his criticism, Chuck D vowed to change urban radio within a year.
