Rapper Paris and Public Enemy Collaborate
With albums from It takes a Million to Hold Us Back and Fear of a Black Planet, Public Enemy rewrote the rules of hip-hop, becoming the definitive rap group of all time. But it was their 2002 release Revolverlution which found the long overdue pairing of the group with fellow revolutionary hip-hop artist Paris on the remix of their lead single. That effort set the tone for the collaboration between Public Enemy, Paris and Dead Prez on Paris’ current album project, Sonic Jihad.
Selling millions of records along the way, Public Enemy pioneered a variation of hardcore hip-hop that was musically and politically revolutionary. Rebirth Of A Nation is an exercise in controlled chaos and Paris pulls out all of the stops to present his finest work yet for what is arguably the most important hip-hop group ever. The album will be in stores summer 2005.
