I adore these guys called the Bomb Squad, the production team of PE. Their sound, this intelligent mix of loops and samples made me love them at once. And dance many nights. As a german I didn't understand all the lyrics and picked what I liked. The early 12"s have B-sides and Bonus-Tracks that are great. As fresh as ever. Sooooophisticated.

Maybe PE have some new material to start on! It would be a great start to 2021!!! And let's face it! There are a lot more MCs who are conscious these days... And will be together with PE... Public Enemy to me back then was amazing! Today they are still amazing! So brave... In a brand new world! PEACE from The UK and PEACE to ALL HUMBLE HUMAN BEINGS ...ONE LOVE xxx

The best hip hop group ever? Chuck D's political and violent rhymes make him the best sounding rapper ever, that just about beat Rakim! Flavour Flav brings a comedic value that complaments Chuck's voice beautifully without losing the message they are trying to get across! The Bomb Squad cut every sample you could ever imagine! If you are reading this please listen to anything by Public Enemy before you listen to anything else hip hop driven and you will realise you are listening to something that revolutionised the sound of rap! Understand that this group had it all, from party jams to political messages! Respect PE! Enjoy the fact that you have discovered the sound of true rap music.

The Cutting-Edge band Public Enemy broke several parameters on the Hip Hop culture bringing the a melting pot of engaged RAP lyrics, a heavy Funk base, with the elements of the so-called Free-Jazz and even of the Musique Concrète (whose essence lies on the fragments of the natural sounds). Fierce, dense, sometimes sarcastic or even relying on a more serious point of view, Public Enemy, composed by the producers Professor Griff and Terminator X and the MCs Chuck D and Flavor Flav set trends with their two albums "It Take A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back" (1988) and "Fear Of A Black Planet" (1990), literally conquering the dancefloors all over the World with several massive hits - which made them one of the most sampled crews of all time.
