Album information [ edit ]
Despite the Public Enemy branding on the album, many tracks were written and produced by Paris; the album itself was deemed a "special project" by Chuck D in order to differentiate it from other Public Enemy works.
The album was released on Paris's own Guerrilla Funk label.
The title of the album is a reference to the 1915
white supremacist film as well as one of the group's prior albums, The Birth of a Nation . It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
The album features appearances and guest spots by Dead Prez, Immortal Technique, Conscious Daughters, MC Ren, Sista Souljah, and Kam.
