Chuck D said about the track: “Our collective voices keep getting louder. 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.”

Earlier this month (June 3), Chuck D spoke out about the ongoing protests in the US following the death of George Floyd.
Talking to HipHopDX, Chuck D said: “My statements are politically incorrect. It will not behove anybody for me to say these things. They’re really incendiary and they’re not helpful. It’s not conducive. When you don’t feel good about saying what you really feel you should say, you shouldn’t say anything at all. Older people know that.”
He continued: “If you don’t really feel it’s conducive to say certain things, you just stay fucking quiet until you find the right words for it. And right now, there are no words for this shit. I got no voice at this moment because every single emotion young people have is justified right now. It’s emotion.”
