Nostalgia is certainly the word with the latest video offering from Public Enemy but after a good 30 years in the game, Chuck D has every right to get sentimental. Directed by David Snyder (a long time collaborator with the group) the video is a humble partner to Chucks ‘heart on the sleeve’ approach to neo-soul, with members of the public miming to the words of one man (and a woman’s) message to the people. We don’t need “Everything” All we need is each other… and a wicked sax solo.
