Posing at NYU's "Nation of Millions" Event
The image displays (from left to right) S1W James Bomb, Glen E Friedman, Hank Shocklee, Chuck D, and S1W Pop Diezel, capturing the moment to frame one of hip-hop’s most historic events which had been held at NYU. On February 25th 2005, Shocklee Entertainment, along with several other platforms, presented “The Making of Public Enemy’s ‘It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back,” which is arguably the rap group’s best-known and most controversial album.
The album featured phenomenal hits such as “Bring The Noise” and “Don’t Believe the Hype,” which presented simply two among PE’s arsenal of tracks that would ultimately branch into a brand-new, more political era of rap music that many others still pursue today.
