Yes, you heard right. A posse cut. Remember those?
In the Rob Martin & Masar-directed clip, the grown-men rap legends separate themselves from all the hip-hop cubs with crisp, throwback lyrics over a beat that borrows heavily from Run-DMC’s “Raising Hell," reminding you why they’re some of the greatest emcees of all time.
I mean, where else can you hear three Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members on one song?
“Hip-hop is cool, so I’mma bring some heat, settin’ fire to the track, burning up the street/ I walked on ice and never fell, I skate across the ice, I’m like the NHL/ I’ll kick yo ass like the MMA, gettin’ down to the tracks of JMJ/ Just like my guns, I’m a shoot the gift, cause we’re the wrong ones to be f--kin’ with,” raps DMC.
Once Darryl puts his mic back in the holster, PMD, MC Serch and the Public Enemy frontman each take turns lyrically destroying the track.
