(((BOOM))) HIPHOPGODS Tour and Public Enemy SMASH the USA !
December 8th, 2012

Across the USA The HIPHOPGODS TourFest features a CLASSIC list of guest groups, MCs and DJs including X-Clan, Monie Love, Schoolly D, Leaders of the New School, Wise Intelligent, Son of Bazerk & No Self Control, Awesome Dre, Davy DMX andDJ Johnny Juice.

Chuck D makes it clear that this isn’t about any one band or one tour but rather to re-establish hip hop as music of the people and let fans see it done “old school, which is not a derogatory term.” It’s also part of the HipHopGods.com, a community for old-school hip hop fans.

The site, compared to “classic rock radio” by DMC of Run-DMC, is just another way Chuck D said his band and his format is staying ahead of the curve. Public Enemy’s two new albums “None of My Still Don’t Appear on No Stamp,” and “The Evil Empire of Everything,” were first released online with little fanfare this summer. Chuck D said he knew the right people would find the music. “We were the first ones to get into the digital. Everyone is communicating that way now,” he said. “We were just waiting for everyone else to catch up.”

Now they’ll pave the way to a hip-hop revue that many doubters thought couldn’t be done. Not only did the show in Washington, D.C. show the style of the show was solid but fan reaction took hip hop right back to the street. “If you look around, there really hasn’t been a hip hop tour. That is a misnomer,” said Chuck D talking about one-off shows and corporate-heavy tours. “That’s really heavy and unrealistic. It takes away from what is best about performance art. The music and DJ, the graffiti, that is the teamwork that makes it as entertaining as Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones. The Hip Hop Gods tour will bring the light. We are making a statement – we control this.”
