Video: BBU’s Biggest Gig

Andrew Barber

FACT: Public Enemy’s  Fear of a Black Planet was the fourth hip-hop tape I ever owned.  The first was DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s He’s The DJ I’m The Rapper.  What was in between was either The Cactus Album, Straight Outta Compton, or one of those rap compilations you could buy at K-Mart called Rap Hits, or something.  Or maybe The D.O.C. But, whatever, that’s not important….

Says RubyHornet

Without a Public Enemy there wouldn’t be a BBU. It’s as simple as that. Chicago’s rising trio credits Public Enemy as a direct influence, even naming their debut mixtape, Fear of A Clear Channel Planet, after PE’s seminal release, Fear of A Black Planet. In what should be a rite of passage for every band, and what is for those that are lucky, BBU was able to open up for Public Enemy on June 26th at The Congress Theater. We followed BBU on their big night, capturing the show and what it meant to the crew known as Bin Laden Blowin’ Up.
