He performed some songs from his first mixtape, 1999, such as "Funky Ho", "Survival Tactics" and ''Waves". In addition, he performed songs from Summer Knights, such as "Unorthodox'' and "95 Til' Infinity", which is a reference to 90's Golden Era group Souls Of Mischief and their album 93 Til' Infinity.

They had the perfect approach from the start; everybody wants to be apart of a revolution and rebellion. From their very first single - Rebel Without A Pause - the image of Public Enemy suddenly shifted into a rebellious, black rap group. They were the same group they were on their debut, but now they were louder.
