Public Enemy to reissue two albums along with rare bonus tracks

Def Jam will be reissuing new editions of two Public Enemy albums, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back and Fear of a Black Planet in celebration of its 30th anniversary. Both albums will have a second disc that contains bonus music. There are also essays written by Questlove from the Roots, and Andre Torres from Wax Poetic on the second disc.

The new edition of It Takes a Nation has the original “No Noise” version of “Bring the Noise,” instrumental versions of “Rebel Without A Pause” and “Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos.” The reissue will also feature the soundtrack version of “Fight the Power” from Spike Lee’s film, Do the Right Thing. Also, it is going to be bundled with a DVD of the 1989 VHS release of Fight the Power…Live!.

The reissue of Fear of a Black Planet has the original LP along with bonus tracks, including the 10-minute-long “Enemy Assault Vehicle Mixx (Medley)”, three remixes of “Can’t Do Nuttin’ For Ya Man!” There are also instrumental takes of “911 Is a Joke”, “Power to the People”, and “Revolutionary Generation.”
