Recent socio-political unrests have served as reminders to us that when it boils down, justice takes the highest priority. Hip-hop veterans Public Enemy — who have been burgeoning since the mid-80s — have always been passionate about that, as from their music you can see that they have experienced the pitfalls of the unjust system they were confined to. As part of the ongoing, yearlong celebration of Def Jam’s 30th anniversary, the group re-releases a multi-disc edition boxed set of their classic records: It takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back and Fear of a Black Planet — arguably two of the most politically-outspoken major releases in music history. Millions, featuring tracks like “Bring The Noise” & “Party For Your Right To Fight” will include a disc of additional material and a Fight The Power Live DVD. Fear will also come with supplementary material such as remixes, instrumentals and medleys. Additional to the CDs, packages also include booklets featuring essays by The Roots drummer Questlove and Wax Poetics editor-in-chief Andre Torres. This is the ultimate must-have set for both collectors and listeners who wish to exercise their musical and political minds.
