Public Enemy’s former DJ Terminator X is planning a formal re-entry into the Hip-Hop game with longtime collaborator, Andreaus 13 and a variety of newcomers.
As a DJ for Public Enemy, Terminator X appeared the group’s most important releases, including Yo! Bum Rush The Show, It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back and Fear of A Black Planet.
In 1991, Terminator X dropped his first solo album, Valley of the Jeep Beats which contained the album’s hit single “Buck Whylin'” featuring Chuck D. and Sister Souljah and “The Blues”, which featured Andreaus 13 as a guest artist.
Terminator X left Public Enemy in 1991.
Now, Terminator X is coming out of retirement in the South and releasing Judgement Day, a tribute to the five elements of Hip-Hop, which include B-Boying, Graffiti, rapping, DJ’ing and Knowledge.
“Andreaus 13 and Terminator have watched the Music industry corporate executive’s destroy these sacred elements that Hip Hop and Rap were developed on,” a representative for Terminator X told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Just like they destroyed the world’s economy on wall street! Judgment Day is here to counter the chaos and mayhem that the current state of Hip Hop has caused to besiege our community.”
The album features production by Terminator X, Andreaus 13, Nicky Wattz, Scriptures’, Ramega, Jamal Malik and various sons of Public Enemy members.
Judgement Day is slated to land in stores in 2011.
