Public Enemy, Flavor Flav included, have returned in full force with a new song taking at the era of Trumpism.

"State of the Union (STFU)," produced by DJ Premier, is now available either as a free download at Public Enemy's website and/or via the streaming provider of your choice. If you download the track from the group's site, you're also given access to original artwork and a lyric sheet.

"Our collective voices keep getting louder, Chuck D, whose work with the supergroup Prophets of Rage also directly addressed the rise of Trumpism, said in a statement about the new song. "The rest of the planet is on our side. But it's not enough to talk about change. You have to show up and demand change. Folks gotta vote like their lives depend on it, 'cause it does."

Flavor Flav, meanwhile, points to the group's history of addressing these issues head on.

"Public Enemy tells it like it is," Flav, whose relationship with the group appeared to be up in the air earlier this year, adds. "It's time for him to GO."
