Like Chuck D, Griff was also vocal in the booth and served as the minister of information. His views were a bit more radical and he never bit his tongue for anybody. At times, his controversial comments would land him a puddle of trouble. For instance, in the 80’s, he received a lot of backlash when he verbally obliterated Jews and blamed them for most of the world’s problems. He wrote a book in 2009, titled Analytixz, and went back on his stance regarding Jews.

“To say the Jews are responsible for the majority of wickedness that went on around the globe, I would have to know about the majority of wickedness that went on around the globe, which is impossible…I’m not the best knower—God is. Then, not only knowing that, I would have to know who is at the crux of all of the problems in the world and then blame Jewish people, which is not correct.”
