    I’m a little confused–if that last panel is Chuck beginning to realize he wants to make his rap political, why was Malcolm on the Spectrum City flyers in the first place?

      The way I read it was that Chuck D knew who Malcolm X was and was shocked that a younger generation was unaware of him and his impact. Its a shame that NWA came along and an overtly political hip hop seemed to get sidelined in the mainstream (where I live) in favour of the adolescent fantasy of Gangsta Rap.

    Respect to Chuck D.

    also, I wanted to mention that this Ice-T track came up on random play on my itunes last week.  I had forgotten how he shouts-out all these guys related to these previous comics (1, 2, 3,) as well as a bunch of the greats from the OG album’s era.  those comments are closed now but thought some of us would dig it if they didn’t already know it; or, like me, needed a refresher.
