Since the controversial beginnings of his career, rap legend Scarface has never been afraid to speak his mind on almost any topic. On Friday, the Houston icon continued that outspoken streak with a new video for his song "Black Still," directed by Dr. Teeth.
As the title indicates, the song is an updated spin on Public Enemy's 1988 classic "Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos." In the original, Chuck D famously gets incarcerated after he ignores a "letter from the government" informing him he's been drafted, leading to a riot and jailbreak once he's inside.
In this version, Face uses Isaac Hayes' famous piano lick to bring attention to police violence against black people, advocate for reparations, and take shots at racist cops and Donald Trump. He also uses the clip to push this book about media representation, if you're looking for some new reading material. You can see the "Black Still" video above.
Scarface also announced on Friday that he will be releasing a new album on Dec. 15. Deeply Rooted: The Lost Files is, in the words of the press release, "an extension" of the rapper's 2015 LP Deeply Rooted. It will have six new songs and four alternate versions of Deeply Rooted tracks.
