Public Enemy to headline “Hip Hop Gods” tour with X-Clan, Monie Love, Schoolly D + more (dates)
Public Enemy ATP NY 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
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.
