In recent years, Public Enemy's live show has consisted of lead emcee Chuck D, hype man extraordinaire Flava Flav, DJ Lord, and sometimes a full live band under music director Khari Wynn. Last year, Public Enemy became the fourth rap group to ever be inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. They are best known for releasing one of the most influential rap songs of all time, "Fight The Power," which was immortalized by a dancing Rosie Perez in the opening credits of the 1989 film Do The Right Thing.
