“F*ck the government, F*ck the motherfuckin’ government” is a bit more jarring to hear these days as the opening lines of a Hip-Hop song, than it was in say…the early ’90s. DC native Uptown XO nods to that bygone era with frequent collaborator AB the Pro in the video for “Petey Greene.”
Greene, a beloved Washington, DC media personality and activist, was revered for his commitment to telling the truth at all costs. Unsurprisingly, controversy followed him throughout his too short career. Not unlike the aforementioned straight shooter, the duo speaks their mind, loudly, defiantly, and without fear of reprisal.
