Can’t Truss It is Public Enemy‘s first single off their fourth album Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black.

Compared to their sonically groundbreaking debut Yo! Bum Rush The Show and classic second and third albums It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back and Fear Of A Black Planet, Public Enemy’s fourth effort is sometimes a bit overlooked and underappreciated. Undeservedly so.

Can’t Truss It is one of the highlights on an album filled with quality tracks. Powerful lyrics and imagery, this song packs a punch; addressing the (unchanged) nature of America’s racist power structures.
