Hip Hop legends X-Clan and Public Enemy have announced they will unite for a month long tour together. The tour launches on Dec 5th in San Diego, CA and hits key major markets across the U.S. before wrapping up in Fargo, ND on Dec 22nd

“Everybody that I know in the cultural worlds of music dreams about a tour with Public Enemy and the X-Clan. No longer a dream, the reality manifests in December 2006,” says X-Clan frontman Brother J. “Public Enemy has been holding it down for the longest and they were the first major conscious group to do it big for the people. Chuck D is my inspiration for remaining independent with my music and I will salute that wisdom by spitting the fire on this tour. Let the word be born: Revolution, Evolution, the Solution. Peace!”

The tour announcement comes on the heels of X-Clan’s appearances on BET’s 106 & Park, Def Poetry Jam, the Legends of Hip Hop Concert and sold out tours with Grammy-winning reggae star Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and Jurassic 5. The intense buzz surrounding X-Clan’s first studio album in over a decade, Return From Mecca, has also garnered attention from national publications like MTV, Spin, Source, Skratch, Murder Dog, The Washington Post and Sirius Satellite Radio.

The highly influential New Yorkers Public Enemy have been together 24 years and delivered a barrage of classic albums awash with politically-charged lyrics. It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back and Fear of a Black Planet featured their finest moments - including "Don''t Believe The Hype," "Bring the Noise" and "Fight the Power." The group, which still features founding members Chuck D, Flavor Flav and Professor Griff, has scores of imitators but is regarded by many as the definitive rap group.

Making its debut in 1990 with, To The East Blackwards, and with there 1992 sophomore effort, Xodus, (both of which are considered classics and peaked at #11 on the Hip Hop charts) X-Clan was at the forefront of hip hop’s cultural movement.  With hits like “Funkin'' Lesson,” “Heed The Word of the Brother” and “Raise The Flag,” X-Clan secured hip hop as their vehicle to deliver and advance the science and math of upliftment, popularizing the ideas of Malcolm X, Sonny Carson, Huey Newton and Clarence 13X, while keeping dance floors packed. 

The world of hip hop has been buzzing since X-Clan, led by Brother J the Clan’s founder and original lead MC, announced their return after nearly a decade-long hiatus. The highly influential group will release their comeback album, Return From Mecca, on January 30, 2006 through underground tastemakers Suburban Noize Records. The highly anticipated album finds the group reforming their groundbreaking tradition of ancestral wisdom, culture and a signature lyrical style that appeals to all generations of hip hop.  Joining X-Clan on their celebrated return are a bevy of high-profile collaborators; among them Damian Marley, Jurassic 5’s Chali 2NA, KRS-One, Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, RBX, Abstract Rude, YZ, DJ Quik, DJ Khalil, Jake One and Bean One.
