Guerrilla Funk has reached an agreement to manufacture and distribute an exclusive, Paris-produced Public Enemy album entitled Rebirth Of A Nation. As many of you know, Public Enemy rewrote the rules of hip-hop, becoming the most influential and controversial hip-hop group last century and, for many, the definitive rap group of all time. Selling millions of records along the way, Public Enemy pioneered a variation of hardcore hip-hop that was musically and politically revolutionary.
Public Enemy has had many major successes, but it was their 2002 release Revolverlution which found the long overdue pairing of the group with fellow revolutionary hip-hop artist Paris on the remix of their lead single. That effort set the tone for the collaboration between Public Enemy, Paris and Dead Prez on Paris’ current album project, Sonic Jihad.
Now Public Enemy is set to once again blow up the spot. Available exclusively through Guerrilla Funk Recordings, Rebirth Of A Nation is an exercise in controlled chaos, as Paris pulls out all of the stops to present his finest work yet for what is arguably the most important hip-hop group ever.
Plus Mc Ren Update from Guerrilla Funk:
Guerrilla Funk has also reached an agreement to manufacture and distribute an exclusive, Paris-produced MC Ren album for release in early 2005. For the uninitiated, MC Ren was part of the foundation of the legendary hip-hop group N.W.A.
He was a strong presence on the group's landmark debut Straight Outta Compton, and also wrote several tracks for Eazy-E's solo debut, Eazy-Duz-It. Following 1991's Niggaz4Life, N.W.A. disbanded acrimoniously, and Ren stuck with Ruthless Records, kicking off his solo career with the six-song EP Kizz My Black Azz in 1992. It sold well, making the Top Ten on the R&B chart and nearly doing the same on the pop side. Ren subsequently converted to the Nation of Islam and released his first full-length album, Shock of the Hour, in 1993. It hit number one on the R&B charts. In 1996 Ren returned with The Villain in Black, which found him working a G-funk blueprint with help from Above the Law. It, too, made the R&B Top Ten, and sold well without much airplay support. Ren further updated his sound on 1998's Ruthless for Life, which again made the R&B Top 20.
