Public Enemy Panel in Chicago — Now With Chuck D!

We just received exciting news that Chuck D — mouthpiece for legendary hip-hop act Public Enemy, will be appearing at FMC and Pitchfork's "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" talk at the Cultural Center on Thursday, July 17.

The event was already gonna be awesome, with Hank and Keith Shocklee — one half of Public Enemy's production unit, the Bomb Squad — talking about how they fashioned their powerful world of sound. Now, PE's culturally astute and outspoken frontman Chuck D will join journalist, activist and PE Media Assassin Harry Allen and the Bomb Squad in a lively conversation led by media professor and documentary filmmaker Kembrew McLeod (Copyright Criminals: This Is a Sampling Sport).

The talk takes place at the Chicago Cultural Center's Claudia Cassidy Theatre, beginning at 3 PM. Admission to the event is free, but those interested in attending must reserve spots by emailing rsvp@pitchforkmedia.com.

Which I just want to say that I got a lot of respect to the game of hip hop and rap.
I respect the respected and shoot, they respect me so why not make everything work out.. I remember a wise man told me that he was hated by many, loved by few, but he most definitely was respected by all....
Most definitely an Ali production!
