  • Chuck D Writes “Katrina” Song, Pharrell Goes Reggaeton, 50 Cent

    Pharrell Williams and Jennifer “J-Lo” Lopez recently met in Puerto Rico to record a reggaeton song, a first for both artists. Last week, the Latina and the Virginia rapper, who is also half of the Neptunes production team, met to work with LunyTunes, a popular group of reggaeton producers. Lopez is reportedly working on a Spanish album with husband Marc Anthony, an accomplished singer and actor.

    50 Cent, The Game, Mariah Carey and Destiny’s Child were top winners at the 2005 World Music Awards, which were held in Los Angeles on Wednesday. 50 Cent snagged the award for best-selling pop male artist, while rival The Game won the best-selling new male honor. Destiny's Child won accolades for best-selling pop group, best-selling R&B group and best-selling female group of all time. Carey and her Emancipation of Mimi emerged victorious with the best-selling R&B artist, female entertainer of the year awards and best-selling pop female artist. Usher, Gwen Stefani and Eminem also won awards at the show, which was held at the Kodak Theatre in L.A.

    Public Enemy front man Chuck D has written a new song addressing the natural disaster in New Orleans, Alabama, Mississippi and the issues that surround the region ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. In “Hell No We Ain’t Alright,” Chuck D sends a barbed message to government officials, the media, the military and even the Hip-Hop nation. The lyrics for the song were written on Sept. 2, the same day Kanye West rapped the treatment of African Americans suffering in the catastrophe live on the NBC television network. The rapper reportedly recorded the track over Labor Day weekend and is expected to distribute it shortly. Chuck D and Public Enemy have been long running activists in the rap community. Below are the lyrics to “Hell No We Ain’t Alright,” as written by Chuck D.

    “Hell No We Ain’t Alright”

    New Orleans in the morning, afternoon, and night
    Hell No We Ain’t Alright

    Now all these press conferences breaking news alerts

    This just in while your government looks for a war to win
    Flames from the blame game, names? Where do I begin?
    Walls closing in get some help to my kin
    Who cares?While the rest of the Bushnation stares

    As the drama unfolds as we the people under the stairs
    50% of this Son of a Bush nation
    Is like hatin’ on Haiti

    And setting up assassinations
    Ask Pat Robertson- quiz him.... smells like terrorism.

    Racism in the news/ still one-sided news
    Saying whites find food/
    prey for the national guard ready to shoot
    ‘Cause them blacks loot

    New Orleans in the morning, afternoon, and night
    Hell No We Ain’t Alright

    Fires, earthquakes, tsunamis
    I don’t mean to scare/ Wasn’t this written somewhere?
    Disgraces all I see is black faces moved out to all these places
    Emergency state, corpses, alligators and snakes
    Big difference between this haze and them diamonds on the VMA’s

    We better look/ what’s really important
    Under this sun especially if you over 21

    This ain’t no TV show/ this ain’t no video
    This is really real/ beyond them same ole “keep it real”

    Quotes from them TV stars drivin’ big rim cars
    'Streets be floodin,’ B/ no matter where you at, no gas
    Driving is a luxury
    Urgency
    State of emergency
    Shows somebody’s government
    Is far from reality....

    New Orleans in the morning, afternoon, and night
    Hell No We Ain’t Alright

    I see here we be the new faces of refugees
    Who ain’t even overseas but here on our knees

    Forget the plasma TV-ain’t no electricity
    New worlds upside down-and out of order
    Shelter? Food? Wasssup, wheres the water?

    No answers from disaster/ them masses hurtin’
    So who the f**k we call?--Halliburton?

    Son of a Bush, how you gonna trust that cat?
    To fix s**t when help is stuck in Iraq?

    Making war plans takin’ more stands
    In Afghanistan 2000 soldiers dyin’ in the sand

    But that’s over there, right?
    Now what's over here is a noise so loud
    That some can’t hear but on TV I can see
    Bunches of people lookin’ just like me…

    Chuck D..save face & just shut the fuck up,seriously...It's a natural disaster,it's not like Bush caused it to happen.I'm all for political and social rap songs like Chuck D did with Public Enemy,but please,no one is going to listen to this song or care,so just save it man.Just cause Kanye West got publicity off of a comment does mean you will too.

    There's a difference between being socially conscience & fighting for your rights,but it's another being straight up racist.He calls Eminem a racist but yet,he himself is racist.

              no,hes talking about skin color,trust me.If the president was black and he fucked up like bush does,youd never hear black ppl complain about it.

              chuck d is an old man just trying to be relevant cause no one nowadays talks about him & public enemy.Plus hes got his boy Flava Flav on VH1 making an ass of himself.Public Enemy as a group lost all its importance after seeing Flava Flav on the Surreal Life & Strange LOve.

                      I'm surprised Chuck D didn't badmouth white people until near the middle of the song.

                      But no, he's not being racist, although I am if I complain about black people.

                        Yes you would they would say that they dont own him.
                        Seriously the day we have a black pres. Jesus will show up a half a second after the results are in.

                        I can almost garantee if we had a black pres. half the white population would kill themselves.
