(FinalCall.com) - While in St. Louis June 1, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was invited by Chuck D and Public Enemy to come to their concert performance as part of the  The ‘Kings of the Mic’ tour.

The tour includes PE, Ice Cube, De La Soul and LL Cool J. After the Minister enjoyed Public Enemy’s energized performance which rocked the crowd of over 16,000 at the Scottrade Center, the Minister spent time with members of the Hip-Hop and entertainment community who consider him a mentor and guiding force in their lives.

Make no mistake about it, it’s very clear that Hip-Hop doesn’t care about what the Minister’s detractors say. The Minister has love for the Hip-Hop community, and they love him! In a Hip-Hop moment for the ages during their performance, Chuck D gave a shout out to Minister Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, then went immediately into the classic “Don’t Believe The Hype!” The crowd exploded in cheers!
