J. Kim sent this over and it’s only right that with all the foolishness that goes on, we balance the equation. Public Enemy doing a meet and greet then live performance in the streets of D.C., literally because they were performing in the bed of a truck.

On November 18th, Virgin Mobile brought Public Enemy to D.C. for a good cause to celebrate the three year anniversary of National Homeless Awareness Month designated by Congress through the efforts of the RE*Generation, Virgin Mobile’s charity arm. Proceeds from the event went to benefiting homeless youth, helping them keep warm, and giving back to the Sasha Bruce House, where a young person who needs a place to stay – for any reason – can find a home here.

Virgin Mobile sponsored an early Thanksgiving dinner at the Sasha Bruce House with Public Enemy, with a tour of the shelter and participated in a Q&A session with the kids and press.

Once they finished, they proceeded to George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium in true Public Enemy style, on the back of a flat bed truck, livening up the mood by giving a small performance on the streets of D.C. before taking the stage for one unforgettable night.

After all these years, they’re still the original rap rebels without a pause.
