Public Enemy in Central Park

O.G. Political rappers, Public Enemy will perform Sunday, August 15, 2010 at 3:00PM on  Central Park/Mainstage. Admission Free. Also on the bill are Ghanaian hip-hop artist Blitz the Ambassador  and metal-oriented The 7th Octave .

Public Enemy, "the most influential and controversial rap group of the 80's performs on the 20th anniversary of their seminal album Fear of a Black Planet, with two rising and equally political new comers.

"Ghanaian hip-hop artist Blitz the Ambassador uses rousing horns and clever beats that make him impossible to take lightly. Alongside his band, The Embassy Ensemble, Blitz tests the limits of hip-hop with live instruments and heavily complex, cross-cultural musical exploration.

"In an age of disposable, cookie cutter acts, The 7th Octave offers up a different musical and lyrical perspective, combining metal riffs and blistering instrumentation with fiery, socially aware lyrics to provoke the minds of the new millennium generation."
