Public Enemy played a highly anticipated set at Jay Z's Made in America Festival on Saturday, bringing their brand of oldschool hip hop and political commentary to Philadelphia. Chuck D began the set by instructing "real hip hop heads" to "put a fist in the air," and that pretty much set the tone for the rest of the performance, which featured references to Trayvon Martin (Chuck D: "He got killed in cold blood"), Mumia Abu Jamal and even a special guest from the Philadelphia school system. Chuck D vowed to donate $10,000 to public schools in the area.
