Chuck D Takes On Kanye & Jay-Z, Refuses To Be A ‘N—- In Paris’

Public Enemy frontman Chuck D went on a Twitter tirade against the use of the N-word by fans in France, which was popularized by Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s GRAMMY-winning song “N****s In Paris.”

Since Sunday (April 28), Chuck has been marathon-tweeting about the N-word and his experience in France. While he took on Jay-Z and Kanye for their role in spreading the word, he also put the major record labels such as Universal Music Group, in his sights.

While in France, Chuck D offered a counter argument, giving context to a word that had been globally promoted by rappers such as Kanye and Jay-Z.

To further make his point, he invoked President Barack Obama, calling attention to how the word would apply to him.

Chuck D’s latest dust-up comes a week after Public Enemy was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, where civil rights Icon Harry Belafonte called PE “radical, revolutionary change agents.”

Tuesday (April 30), while still in France, Chuck further called out lawyers and the “industry,” saying tweeting is “better than the duct tape & car trunk alternative.”

He also explained why he dedicated so much time to the N-word topic.

As of press time, Chuck D continues to tweet on the topic, with his most recent tweet relishing the opportunity to call out Universal while easing up on ‘Ye and Jay.
