Art of Rap Tours and Documentary

New York, NY (June 6, 2016) — Chuck D’s launches a new Art of Rap radio station today in association with The Art of Rap festival, which Public Enemy will tour with this year.  The radio channel will stream tracks by artists from both the 2015 and 2016 tour as well as the critically acclaimed documentary, including festival co-founder Ice-T.   Founded in 1999 by Public Enemy frontman Chuck D, features over 30 hip hop music radio stations and specialty shows, news, exclusive interviews, a Top 50 chart and videos.  

Throughout the summer, Public Enemy will join Ice-T, Naughty By Nature, Mobb Deep and more as part of the Art of Rap Festival, a nationwide tour built around hip-hop artists spanning the history of the art form.  The first Art Of Rap Festival was held in August 2015 and follows in the footsteps of Ice T’s critically acclaimed documentary “The Art Of Rap.” This year’s Art of Rap Festival includes performances by Public Enemy, Ice-T, Naughty By Nature, Mobb Deep, Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio, Epmd, The Sugarhill Gang And Kurtis Blow (exact lineup varies by date).
