Public Enemy, backed by the Roots, will play Nation Of Millions in it's entirety!


The Philly homeboys The Roots will be holding their now-annual ROOTS PICNIC on June 6 at Festival Pier in Philadelphia.

The band will play two sets at the festival, opening and closing the festival. And as Billboard reports, along with Antibalas, they will also back Public Enemy-- another one of the greatest live rap groups ever-- as they do their masterpiece It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back in its entirety. - ( Pitchfork )

-FUPPETS- loves some Public Enemy and some Roots and it would be an insane show to catch, to hear the entirety of IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK performed with the Roots kicking out the jams. There is no way to know how they will recreate the cacophony and insane skronk squalor, sirens and all, of the P.E. masterpiece. -FUPPETS- hopes someone records this thing!

PUBLIC ENEMY - Night Of The Living Baseheads

THE ROOTS - 100% Dundee
