Happy Born Day to Chuck D, one of the best to ever breathe on a mic. Chuck truly perfected the art of combining intricate rhymes with explosive truths about oppression. Without him, your favorite conscious MCs wouldn’t exist at all. Happy birthday to the man who challenged everything that challenged the progress of black folk: police brutality, racial profiling, ignorance, black on black crime, negligence. And he’s still out there doing the damn thing.

As it turns out, TRU’s own Ivan Rott shares Chuck’s birthday. No surprises there. Like Mr. P.E., Ivan has been known to fight the power from time to time. Happy Born Day, homie.
