The band's new LP features a host of helpers...
Public Enemy will release a new album in August, according to the band’s leader CHUCK D.
The LP, ‘Revolverlution’, will be released online by Chuck’s Slamjamz label (www.slamjamz.com>) and offline through a new partnership with Koch, the independent that has recently released new material by KRS-1 and the Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA.
The first single from the album will be ‘Gotta Give The Peeps What They Need’. The track finds Public Enemy working once again with DJ Johnny “Juice” Rosado, who performed most of the scratching on their first two albums, ‘Yo! Bum Rush The Show’ and ‘It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back’. Rosado last appeared with the outfit on
the ‘He Got Game’ soundtrack album in 1998. ‘…Peeps…’ will also feature a verse from controversial Oakland rapper Paris on its remix.
Rosado and Chuck D have also collaborated recently on a reworking of the Muddy Waters track ‘Mannish Boy’, for a US TV documentary to be screened in 2003. The pair recorded the late bluesman’s song with a band comprising the musicians who backed Waters on the original, augmented with human beatbox Rahzel, Roots drummer Ahmir ‘?uestlove’ Thompson, and vocals by rapper
Common and singer Kyle Jason, a member with Chuck of Public Enemy side-project Hyenas In The Desert.
