Public Enemy No.1

It is safe to say that no other music group has moved me in the way that Public Enemy has. Frontman Chuck D, and Flava Flav have been bringing serious energy to thier music for over twenty years. My first album, purchased years ago, Apocalypse 91: The Enemy Strikes Black, is a powerhouse of rhymes, beats and political charge.

Very rarely will I take a post out of photography to express my own interest, yet I feel that the message is valuable.

Public Enemy is a tour de force. An expression of political magnitude, and one of the first and most influential voices in Rap music as we know it today…

Filling my own airspace for the past week has been the beats of Publics Enemy’s “New Whirl Odor”, easily one of the hardest hitting albums of the groups career. A powerhouse of beats and rhymes, this album brings back the very essence and energy that defined Public Enemy in the late 80’s, early 90’s.

Relevancy is the topic here, and for any one with a pinch et for hard hitting music, I suggest you take a second look at the musical influence of Public Enemy.
