BRING THE NOISE, HITS, VIDS AND DOCS BOX: GREATEST SITES AND SOUNDS (CHAPTER 2 1999-2009)
Arguably, if RUN DMC are the BEATLES of Rap Music, PUBLIC ENEMY is surely Hip Hop's ROLLING STONES. CHUCK D, FLAVOR FLAV, PROFESSOR GRIFF and the S1WS are still doing their thing, making PE an 'event' wherever they go on the earth.
In these times where hip hop is a billion dollar business, yet at the crossroads, it has no other choice but to look back at its foundations in order to legitimize itself as true music rather than disposable pop.
One can look up or 'Google' all of the accolades of PUBLIC ENEMY as they drag the genre with them into the ROCK and ROLL HALL of FAME voting in 2012.
This new innovative HITS, VIDS, and DOCS BOX SET is a 'first' and has followed that 'PE' tradition in trendsetting, while never repeating itself. A stunning set of 3 CDs featuring PUBLIC ENEMY'S post DEF JAM catalog of 10 Albums and DVDs since 1999, this is a mass compilation of studio and LIVE recordings, remixes, videos, documentaries and concert footage. Replacing legendary PUBLIC ENEMY DJ TERMINATOR X, DJ LORD has been with the group since 1999 expanding it with world class stature in that department. The group's recordings have reached into its performing 3 piece unit, aptly named the baNNed, this past decade. In house producers GARY G-WIZ, DJ JOHNNY JUICE, PROFESSOR GRIFF, WHITFIELD PAYNE, SPACEMAN, and C-DOC (THE WARHAMMER) (also compiler of this set) have followed production suit in classic BOMB SQUAD tradition.
It was never intended for PUBLIC ENEMY to solely sell, and be marketed to, the 'youth market' although its material has been found to be beneficial and non-toxic to that demographic. PE has always been a 'CLASSIC' album artist muck like TOM PETTY, THE GRATEFUL DEAD, or MILES DAVIS. This is how PUBLIC ENEMY aims to be treated and thus marketed. The 31 year old rap genre now has a marketplace range from 10 to 50 years of age. PUBLIC ENEMY aims for people of all ages, over daring to pave new marketing and promotional territory.
