Public Enemy opened the BET Awards with a rendition of their classic “Fight The Power.” From start to finish, they provide the narrative for social injustice and systematic racism that is unapologetically continuing in America. Throughout the performance, they include many artists on the song with Nas, Black Thought, Rapsody, YG, and Jahi.
The words and statements that all artists provide throughout is something that everyone needs to be hearing, learning, supporting, and watching. They have delivered a powerful statement with a classic that speaks volumes to the times that we are in.
Other performers from this year’s BET Awards include Alicia Keys, DaBaby, John Legend, Summer Walker, Roddy Ricch, and more. To view more information about the performances at this year’s awards, check out the BET website.
