Muhammad Ali and Chuck D are two of the most of the most brash, outspoken and revolutionary figures in modern African American history, so it only seems fitting that their paths would cross. Chuck D imagines Ali shaking up the world, standing up for the hood and boxing in "an anti-war stance." There are a few unexpected and dead-on lines -- "[there's a] thin line between a slave and an athlete," "here's a whooping on mass distraction" -- but Chuck's voice sounds more strained than authoritative, and the low-grade funk of the production is dry.
