Prophets of Rage have offered up their new single “Living on the 110.” The track carries the torch of the band’s politically charged message and finds the supergroup, made up of members of Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill, spitting lyrics about the poverty and political hypocrisy they perceive in our culture.
“There’s no end to poverty stopping me/ Or democracy, hypocrisy,” B-Real and Chuck D blast in the chorus.
“‘Living on the 110’ is a song that speaks to the issue of homelessness,” Tom Morello said in a statement. “The 110 is a freeway in Los Angeles and living beneath it are thousands of homeless people. Bentleys and Rolls Royces roaring by are literally driving on top of the poor and their makeshift homes, a picture perfect analogy for the grotesque economic inequality that plagues our times.”
The band’s self-titled release is due out on September 15.
