A lot of times black folks look for love in all the wrong places. You're always looking for somebody to love you, be accepted, and there's the insecurities that are even transmitted through rap. Everyone is trying to aim to please too much.More Chuck D. [09/14/2011 02:09:17]
I think right about now we have to beware of marketed Malcolms and Martins. Real people do real things.More Chuck D. [09/14/2011 02:09:28]
I'd rather have a hundred thousand or a million people saying I'm nuts and I'm crazy for my musical choices and what I've said lyrically, than a million people all raising their hand on the first day.More Chuck D. [09/14/2011 02:09:33]
We don't see the people who are doing real things getting enough props. We often see politicians who are everywhere but nowhere at the same goddamn time. You know the kind of person: You see them everywhere on television but nowhere in front of your face.More Chuck D. [09/14/2011 02:09:52]
You have to wait for people to program you. The only difference is the amount of people that you're going to reach but that's going to even out in the next two or three years anyway. Computers are being bought faster than televisions right now.More Chuck D. [09/14/2011 02:09:58]

DJ culture always made us aware that the best records were going to come from the small shopsMore Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Being called Black in America is the struggle to keep us moving and breathing over bloody water. Being a Nig**r or [Ni**a] without the context of history is like drowning in bloody water, dragging down those yet knowing to swim.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm envious of the way that electronic dance music has organised itself. It has been able to understand what it ain't rather than what it is. And I think that slipped away from hip-hop as soon as the DJs lost the majority of the say so in the direction of the music.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To live a life you love, you must Love the life you live.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Of course voting is useful. But then again, I don't put a big glow to it. Voting is about as essential as washing yourself. It's something you're supposed to do. Now, you can't go around bragging, expecting to get props because you voted. That's stupid.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Cause I'm Black and I'm proud
I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped

Young people are having a hard time with what's reality and what's fantasy these days...We created discussion. It wasn't to create controversy for sale's sake, but rather it was my obligation to use the medium for discussion. Nobody's discussing the grown-up topics; they are faking and fronting.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think governments are the cancer of civilization.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The best way to boycott is to build your ownMore Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Rap comes from the humble beginnings of rebelling against the status quo. Now, rappers have become the status quo themselves. You can't rebel against the Queen and then become the Queen yourself. I attribute much of the blame to testosterone-male dominance and patriarchy.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Excuse us for the news,
You might not be amused;
But did you know White comes from Black?
No need to be confused.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Many have forgotten what we came here for,
Never knew or had a clue, so you're on the floor.
Just growin' not known' about your past...
Now you're lookin' pretty stupid while you're shakin' your ass.More Chuck D. [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
