When I read yesterday, on Alex Jones' Prison Planet, that Public Enemy continously plugged Jones' the Obama Deception during their set this weekend at Coachella, I figured it might have been Chuck himself. I suppose I should have known it was Professor Griff.
I tried to find video of it so I could I could post here, like I've posted videos of Griff endorsing Cynthia McKinney, KRS-One shouting "9/11 was an inside job" from the stage at one of his shows, the Obama Deception in its entirety, so on and so forth, but I couldn't find any. But I read a report in the LA Times that said it was Griff.
I wonder if Chuck D approved of Griff plugging the Obama Deception, or if Griff just does whatever he wants. I remember some comments from Chuck during the election, and he sounded like your typical Obamaton. If it's the latter, I'm sure it's a hairy situation for Chuck. You know Griff had those problems back in the late '80s, when he said Jews are responsible for most of the world's problems.
I wouldn't be surprised if guys like Griff and Flavor Flav do all kinds of crazy shit, and Chuck D just kinda sits and stews about it. That was the impression that I got from seeing PE at P-fork, when Flav showed up late then started plugging Flavor of Love in between songs.
After the jump are extra interviews with Griff and KRS-One from the Obama Deception.
