Info for What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down?
Public Enemy and Def Jam have reunited to officially release "Fight the Power (Remix 2020)," the explosive remix that opened the 2020 BET Awards in June featuring Nas, Rapsody, Black Thought, YG, Jahi and Questlove. "Fight the Power (2020 Remix)," is the first offering from the group's forthcoming new studio album What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down, set for release via Def Jam on September 25th.
The announcement of What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down? and their return to Def Jam -- a cultural institution that they helped build -- was heralded around the globe last week with the group’s iconic logo projected onto some of the world’s other most iconic cultural institutions including the Eiffel Tower and Moulin Rouge in Paris; Parliament, Marble Arch & Tate Modern Museum in London; and more -- watch HERE.
The album is led by the single “Fight the Power: Remix 2020,” re-conceptualized by Public Enemy with Nas, Rapsody, Black Thought, YG, Jahi and Questlove for the 2020 BET Awards in June, and officially released as a single along with the album announcement last week. It also includes Public Enemy’s recent single, “State of the Union (STFU),” produced by DJ Premier. The track holds nothing back as it calls out Donald Trump and his destructive reign.
Politically charged hip hop legends, Flavour Flav, Chuck D, Terminator X, Professor Griff and Gary G-wiz were cultivated in Long Island, New York, but are now a house hold name across the globe. A group whose musical style and incendiary delivery have earned them critical acclaim and millions of fans throughout their career, Public Enemy continue to blaze musical and technological trails with the release of albums like Beats And Places.
The group burst onto both the rap and pop music world in 1987 with their first single ‘Public Enemy #1’, a startling combination of Chuck D’s commanding orations, Hank Shocklee’s layered cacophony of musical noise, and Flava Flav’s show-stopping antics to keep the message entertaining. A month later, the group released their debut album Yo! Bum Rush the Show. Shortly after, they recorded Rebel Without A Pause, which would herald a new era of rap with layers upon layers of samples, sirens and general chaos. The world responded positively and Public Enemy became international stars overnight. The classic It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back was released in 1988, and was considered to be one of the most important records ever released, voted as #1 rap album of all time. Many more albums have followed including Muse-Sick-N-Hour-Mess-Age, Greatest Missea and more, with singles such as ‘More News at 11’, ‘Shut Em Down’ and ‘Letter to the New York Post’ all confirming their place at the top of the international rap pile.
When Chuck D founded Public Enemy in the late '80s he wanted to deliver socio-political messages that give voice to those who have long been ignored. He has always been unafraid to question institutional injustices and challenge both leaders and laymen alike to work for change.
His musical and lyrical intensity, eloquence and depth are matched by few, an explosive combination that feeds both mind and soul. His artistry draws unwavering critical acclaim and legions of worldwide fans who have flocked to concerts in over 105 countries, during 2,000+ concerts, on 107 tours. The New York Times named Public Enemy's music to their list of the "25 Most Significant Albums of the Last Century," and in 2005 The Library of Congress included Fear of a Black Planet in their National Recording Registry. Three albums are certified multi-platinum, three more are gold, with four gold singles and a platinum-selling home video. In 2013, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Public Enemy Radio carries on this powerful legacy, led by Chuck D, DJ Lord and Jahi. Bringing it back to the hip hop foundation of 2 turntables and a microphone.
