B-Real from Prophets of Rage has spoken more about the group's new single, album, and how they're taking charge with outspoken, politically-charged hip-hop. 

The 48-year-old rapper is a member of the rap-rock supergroup which was formed in 2016. 

It consists of B-Real, who found fame in Cypress Hill, as well as three members of Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave. Rounding out the group are two members of Public Enemy.

Weekend Drive presenter Eddy Temple Morris spoke to B-Real about the group's upcoming single ‘Radical Eyes’.

The rapper said hip-hop of a political nature was becoming a main focus in music. 

He said: "I think we're one of the bands starting to fill this gap. 

"This stuff was mixing in music for a long time, especially in regard to hip-hop. 

"I think if you have a passion about something, especially with what's going on, and you have a voice, you're doing yourself a disservice."

The group's eponymous debut album, , is out now.
