Clear the way, yo.

One of the best albums of 2017 was the self-titled debut from Prophets of Rage, and the rock/hip-hop supergroup has steadily amassed a formidable reputation as a live act over the course of the last year and a half. Additional audio proof arrives via the band’s Voodoo Music festival appearance back in October, an HDTV webcase, which the archivists at Big O zine have kindly posted for free download along with printable artwork.
It’s a heavy-ass show, as befits the musicians who hail from the estimable ranks of Public Enemy, Cypress Hill, and Rage Against the Machine. Songs from all three groups’ back catalog are featured prominently in the setlist – a midset hip-hop medley of PE and Cypress material is one of the concert’s high points – which you can view, below.
