Public Enemy want your money

Hip-hop legends Public Enemy have started a venture to get fans to pay for the making of their as-yet untitled album, and are looking to get their supporters to stump up $250,000 collectively.

Earlier this month the group signed a deal with Sellaband, which is an internet engine that promotes fan funding of bands, and have so far raised $50,000. For contributions (which start at $25 and rise by that amount incrementally), you will receive a copy of the album and a limited edition T-shirt, while those who stump up more money will have access to the studio while the group records and even executive producer credits in the album sleeve.

Under the terms of the contract, Public Enemy will keep complete ownership of the entire record, which is pretty nice.
