Prophets of Rage, the all-star rap metal, funk metal, and hip-hop supergroup is coming live to the Paradise Rock Club!
Prophets of Rage was formed in 2016 and is a supergroup consisting of Chuck D (from Public Enemy), Rage Against the Machine's bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk, and Cypress Hill's B Real. The band takes its name from the Public Enemy song Prophets of Rage (from their 1988 album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back). In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine Tom said, “We're an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing.” Chuck D (birth name Carlton Douglas Ridenhour) was born in New York in 1960 and is an MC, author, and producer. He was one of the pioneers of politically and socially conscious hip-hop music in the mid-1980s and has a powerful and resonant voice that’s often acclaimed as one of the most distinct and impressive in hip-hop. He’s been ranked #12 in Source magazine’s list of the Top 50 Hip-Hop Lyricists of All Time and in 2013 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
