public enemy

Public Enemy released Yo! Bum Rush the Show 25 years ago and show no signs of slowing down. In fact, 2012 has been a busy year for the hip hop legends, releasing two albums this year: Most of My Heroes Still Don't Appear on No Stamp in July and The Evil Empire of Everything this month. The cover art to the latter, which you can pick up at Amazon, is above and you can stream "Riotstarted" from it below which features Henry Rollins and Tom Morello.

Meanwhile, yesterday was the launch of the Hip Hop Gods tour that Public Enemy headline but also features X-Clan, Monie Love, Schoolly D, Leaders Of The New School and more. That tour hits NYC tonight at Irving Plaza. Tickets are still available but we have a few pairs to give away (in addition to what we're giving away on Facebook). Details on how to enter, song streams and a list of all tour dates, below...

I can't really think of any hero of mine that's been on a stamp, either. Bugs Bunny, maybe?

Tom Morello's neutered impression of early Run-DMC songs?

Griff looks like Leonard Nimoy on that album cover.

12:00pm is just plain stupid, but 12:12pm is an abject loser. you suffer from a terminal case of ignorance.

how does it feel to be an empty shell of a person?

hollow inside, you are hollow inside.

I liked my Blacks a lot better when they were angry and militant. From 2000 and on Blacks became timid and non threatening. Good to see PE still at it.

^ Agreed. I liked it better when they went out of their way to make us uncomfortable. It had spirit.
