Chuck D brought the noise during an Anthrax and Hatebreed show at the Coney Island Amphitheater this weekend. On Friday (August 26), the metal superstars performed in Brooklyn, and the legendary Public Enemy frontman made a surprise appearance. Public Enemy and Anthrax famously collaborated on the 1991 remix of P.E.'s 1987 classic "Bring The Noise."
“It’s why @publicenemyftp @anthrax was unmatched so you rapper listeners take note. It’s speed thrashing (& moving). I was done by mid 3rd verse. Played it off. I’m no longer 31-impossible to ramp up 0-200 bpm off sidestage on the hardest fasted band on Earth.”
P.E. and Anthrax's collaboration was hailed at the time for furthering the bridge between Hip-Hop and rock/metal music. And Chuck D would continue in that vein; he formed the supergroup Prophets of Rage alongside B-Real of Cypress Hill and Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine.
