Public Enemy to reissue legendary albums

Once again back is the incredible Public Enemy. Rolling Stone tells us that Def Jam records and PE are planning to reissue It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back and Fear of a Black Planet with a ton of additional tracks and media.

As part of pioneering rap label Def Jam's 30th anniversary celebrations, the label has planned reissues of Public Enemy's 1988 breakthrough album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back and their 1990 follow-up LP, Fear of a Black Planet, as multidisc deluxe reissues. Each reissue contains the album as it originally came out alongside a disc's worth of bonus tracks, comprising hard-to-find tracks and B-sides, as well as liner notes by the Roots' Questlove and Wax Poetics editor-in-chief Andre Torres.

I've always wanted to hire the S1W to work for Boing Boing.
