Chuck D. of Public Enemy

View this post on Instagram

PUBLIC ENEMY - CHUCK D. - Jail Cell in Hell's Kitchen 1988. This photo was taken a week or two before, the 2nd album cover, IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK. I'm proud to have been a part of that album. . Besides being a dope photo I am posting this one today because Chuck, DMC and myself, after a discussion about the work, will be signing copies of my new book “TOGETHER FOREVER” this coming Monday at Barnes & Nobel on Union Square in New York City. Why will Chuck be there you ask? Because he is a huge Run-DMC & Beastie Boys Fan and supporter, and he wrote the final essay in the book! . . The event is free to anyone who buys a copy of the book, you can get advance tickets by going to To assure your place a seat and a book! . . (Now to continue a little with the story of this photo) We had to do a re-shoot because Flavor actually didn’t make it to the photo session since he was actually incarcerated for some minor offense. So we made a few photos like this one and rescheduled. At that LP cover session, Flavor was very uncomfortable during the shoot as one might imagine, some one who had actually been in a cell recently might feel. . IMHO “It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back” is the greatest hip hop album ever! . . this photograph was first published in my book FUCK YOU HEROES (out of print) and is also in my book MY RULES printed bigger and better than ever (and still in print). . ... #Inspiration #integrity #DefJam #PUBLICENEMY #BlackSteel #ChuckD #S1Ws #FlavorFlav #hipHop #GoldenEra #ExtraStrengthPosse #itTakesANationOfMillionsToHoldUsBack #Punk #art #composition #character #attitude #Historic #film @mrchuckd_pe @kingdmc
