Public Enemy honor Brother Ali in new video

In preparation for their forthcoming box set (BRING THE NOISE, HITS, VIDS, and DOC BOX: GREATEST SITES AND SOUNDS), Public Enemy dropped a new video for "Say it Like it Really Is" this morning, and it includes snapshots of inspirational public figures, activists, and musicians ranging from Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. to Queen Latifah, Rage Against the Machine, Michael Franti, and more. As familiar faces flash across the screen, one stands out in particular: At the 3:54 mark, it's none other than Minneapolis's Brother Ali.

"Yo! New Public Enemy video just dropped," Brother Ali tweeted this morning. "Photos of @ImmortalTechnique and @SageFrancisSFR @Questlove & ME!"

Watch the full video below. Prince also makes an appearance at 4:10.
