Seminal hip-hop group Public Enemy released a new animated video for “GRID” featuring funk legend George Clinton and cannabis-loving Cali hip-hop crew Cypress Hill. The “Grid” video was directed by Ice the Endless, with background by ThatOneDudeZach and visual effects by RMELL and ARTJCON.

In the video, we see animated interpretations of the featured artists doing what they do best—fighting the power—with George Clinton as “Uncle Jam,” Flava Flav as “Lt. MC,” B-Real as “B-Stroy,” DJ Lord as “Agent A,” and Chuck D as “The Chief.” Toward the end of the video, the animated crew is chased by a Scooby Doo-style ghost who thematically encapsulates our society’s ills. The culprit under the KKK-like white hood? President Donald Trump. He would’ve gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for those meddling rappers… Watch the animated video for “GRID” by Public Enemy ft. George Clinton and Cypress Hill below:
