Public Enemy ATP NY 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Public Enemy

Chuck D proudly presents the first annual HipHopGods Tour... The 12 date tour will feature Public Enemy, X-Clan, Monie Love, Schoolly D, Leaders Of The New School, Wise Intelligent from Poor Righteous Teachers, Son Of Bazerk & No Self Control, Awesome Dre, Davy DMX and DJ Johnny Juice holding it down as the official tour DJ.

The initial tour will be filmed for future documentary, and subsequent tours will follow in 2013. The 3 hour concert, hosted by Chuck D, will move like a 1960s James Brown revue or Dick Clark Star Caravan making the concert a true once in a lifetime event.

It's like 1991 all over again, and political hip hop pioneers Public Enemy  have snagged some of the all-stars from the era for the tour from coast-to-coast. Look for the precision strikes tin late November and early December, with NYC getting the look at Irving Plaza on November 29. Tickets are on sale now.

^ You forgot the commas in that sentence. Dumbass. If you're going to step into the Billyburger Eatin' Fools Playground, you need to learn how to use proper grammar. Go back to listening to your Decemberists recordings and KEXP, while I contemplate how much better KCMU was before Paul Allen spent all his fucking Microsoft money to make it suck.

Amazing that Wise Intelligent and X-Clan will be there, but definitely not sold on Flav's ability to keep the shit-show to an absolute minimum.

Everybody has that one item in the wardrobe that brings up good memories from the past.

the term "gods" bothers me a bit, since PE is the only group that had any sort of success in this lineup. also, they weren't hip hop, they were political rap. a tour with this title should have tribe/de la soul/boogiemonsters etc...

I can't wait to relive the old skool daze, where you used to have to sit through a Monie Love song and try not to look too bored before getting back to the good hip hop.

The Hip Hop Gods Tour was a blast! So much good music comradarie and love. Shout out to All my brothers and sisters from the Tour! For those who missed it catch the upcoming documentary! Anyone who really loves hip hop won't be disappointed. By the way Hip Hop encompasses all politcial,social party conscience and gangter rap etc.. Public Enemy are Icons and only big brother Chuck D could've pulled this off.... Much love and respect PEace 1/2pint from Son of Bazerk/No Self Control
