Public Enemy are set to re-issue their Def Jam output as part of a new deluxe vinyl box set.
Public Enemy's status as hip hop greats is not in dispute. Unusually, though, the band remain a vital force - where other Golden Age elders have fallen, Chuck D's flow and impact remain inspiring.
Current Clash Magazine cover stars, Public Enemy are set to toast their 25th anniversary this year. Yep - debut album 'Yo! Bum Rush The Show' was released all the way back in 1987...
Preparing a deluxe vinyl box set, the group will bring together their entire Def Jam output. Out on April 15th, the collection features 'Yo! Bum Rush The Show' (1987), 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back' (1988), 'Fear Of A Black Planet' (1990), 'Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black' (1991), 'Muse Sick-N-Hour Mess Age' (1994) and 'He Got Game' (1998).
Here's 'Fight The Power'.
