Singer Keedron Bryant kicked off the BET Awards with his stirring anthem “I Just Wanna Live” which was the perfect way to usher in a new rendition of the hip hop classic “Fight the Power” by Public Enemy .

Chuck D and Flavor Flav reunited alongside Jahi from Public Enemy Radio for the tune updated to recognize the current landscape, recognizing the protests and rallies stemming from the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Nina Pop and the countless people from the Black community we have lost due to racism and police brutality.
