DJ Moneyshot Deconstructs It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back


Those of you who listened to the Solid Steel Radio Show‘s treatments of 3 Feet High and Rising and Paul’s Boutique know what to expect. Those who haven’t need to get on that, and be ready to take in a seamless hour-long mix that is part behind-the-scenes audio-documentary, part sample archive, and all dope… or as they put it:

It’s another special show as our own DJ Moneyshot presents another classic album deconstructed for the Solid Steel 25th Anniversary. Public Enemy’s ‘It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back’ is also 25 years old and to honour both occasions DJ Moneyshot shows us once again why he’s the mixtape king with the career-best offering, Solid Steel and the Hour of Chaos. Over 60 blistering minutes he takes in all the beats, breaks, samples and spoken word nuggets that made this seminal Bomb Squad production such an explosive release. Amongst the vast stack of tracks in the mix, expect words of wisdom from Louis Farrakhan, exclusive interviews with Hank Shocklee, and all the soul, rock ‘n’ roll and early rap tracks that went into making up P.E’s (if not hip-hop’s) finest album.
