(AllHipHop News) While Cypress Hill’s B-Real, Public Enemy’s Chuck D, and three Rage Against The Machine members called it quits as the Prophets of Rage supergroup, another Hip Hop legend wants to go on the road with the reunited RATM. RZA spoke to TMZ about the iconic rock band.
“It’s a great thing for Rage to reunite. Tom and Zach getting back together [for] Coachella. It’s going to be exciting,” said RZA. “If the stars line up right, I would love to see [them] – when they finish that Coachella run – to hook up with Wu-Tang and finish that tour we never finished.”

According to multiple reports, Rage Against The Machine announced a series of concert dates for 2020 including a headlining set at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California. Vocalist Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, drummer Brad Wilk, and bassist Tim Commerford have not played together since 2011.
Rage is known for making music with left-leaning, anti-imperialism themes. The Donald Trump era in America is partially defined by extreme political partisanship and cultural divisions, and the Grammy-winning progressives will return on the eve of the next presidential election.
“I think right now, the way the times are, we need Rage Against The Machine. It’s perfect timing for them, perfect energy for them, and we think that the climate is right for Rage. Just like the timing is right for Wu-Tang. Let’s rock the world,” added RZA.
