Music Video Distributors and SlamJAMZ are pleased to announce the home viewing release of Public Enemy â¤' It Takes a Nation: The First London Invasion 1987 for worldwide distribution on DVD/CD.
This DVD follows Public Enemy on their very first embarkment upon the Euro-UK shores during the Def Jam tour of 1987. Thatcher was Prime Minister, Nelson Mandela was still in a South African prison, Reagan was US president, the Wall was still up and a King holiday was far away. PE stepped into this world with plenty to say, vintage interviews, and the incendiary performance.
By pioneering a variation of hardcore Rap that was musically and politically revolutionary, Public Enemy rewrote all of the rules of Hip Hop. What began as the most influential and controversial Rap group of the late '80s, has come to be known as the most definitive Rap group of all time.
