Watch Public Enemy Play Kimmel In Brooklyn & Cameo In His Do The White Thing Parody

Jimmy Kimmel wrapped up a week of episodes filmed in Brooklyn last night, and he invited Public Enemy to close out the show. The Long Island rap group emerged onto the stage from a faux Brooklyn stoop to perform a medley of “Fight The Power” and “911 Is A Joke” off of their 1990 classic Fear Of A Black Planet and the title track from their recent Man Plans God Laughs. Flavor Flav also popped up earlier in the episode for a cameo in Do The White Thing, Kimmel’s all-star parody “sequel” to Spike Lee’s 1989 Brooklyn-set film Do The Right Thing. The sketch pokes fun at the differences between the Brooklyn of 1989 and the gentrified Brooklyn of today — for example, Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek shows up as “Vinyl Raheem,” toting a portable record player. (Neutral Milk Hotel’s In The Aeroplane Over The Sea vinyl even makes a brief easter egg appearance.) Watch both clips below.
