Biography

Until Public Enemy, hip-hop was wrapped up in gold chains, fast women and being top dog in rap throwdowns. But with the group's rise, hip-hop gained a social and political consciousness. Emphasizing pride and condemning prejudice, Public Enemy became the most influential and controversial rap group of its time, hailed by history and by all who have since followed.

Editorial Reviews

Public Enemy has again followed suit in bringing its music, words, imagery and meaning to the world. The highly influential Long Island New Yorkers have been together 20 years and delivered a barrage of classic albums awash with politically-charged lyrics. The group, which still features founding members Chuck D, Flavor Flav, and Professor Griff, has scores of imitators but is regarded by many as the definitive rap group. Beats and Places brings to the foreground some lesser-known Public Enemy tracks along with a DVD of music videos and documentaries. Standard Jewel Case with DVD. After an impressive resurgence in the early 2000s, the group that brought protest to hip-hop keeps things moving with another strong album, Beats And Places. The state of 21st century America is an endless source of outrage for Chuck D--as he puts it on 'Hell No, We Ain't All right,' (a single recorded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina), 'We got more issues to talk about.' From hip-hop's hyper-capitalist mentality, ('Air Conditioning') to mass media mind-control, ('Vidiot') to social injustice and corporate greed run amuck , Public Enemy's lead vocalist has plenty on his plate. And the presidential vocal samples ('Don't mess with George Dubya') on 'Grand Theft Oil' may be the most frighteningly gangsta words heard in some time. '

Since we have finally gotten over the fact that PE doesn't always have to have the Nation or Fear sound of the late 80's and early 90s, that leaves us to appreciate the sound that they do have today. Beats and Places is one of the most refreshing albums I've heard this year. The production, lyrics, sound quality is all top notch. It is not a complete thesis statement like their past albums but it does challenge the listener to reflect on many of the issues of the day. For example Grand Theft Oil points a finger directly at the bush administration's unjust war in Iraq, the song Electric Slave is a pure classic and Air Conditioning is a true example of real hip hop. Overall I love this album and I hope PE keeps putting out great music whether the masses buy it or not.

I said it before and I'll say it again, this is what REAL Hiphop music sounds like. As a Part-time music producer, Chuck D and the rest of the PE camp never fails to stimulate my mind and creative juices. I have always loved this group. Lyrically, Musically and overall talent just leaves all these new FAKE Hiphop rappers and groups way, way behind. P.E.'s producers should give some of these rookie producers classes on beat making. Just the imagination and thought process that goes into P.E. rythym tracks blows me away! The engineering and final mastering is awesome! Chuck D oversees and makes sure he has top quality production and is involved in every part of the projects from "Yo,Bum Rush The Show" all the way to this new album. From the intro to the last track is an explosion of Beats, Wisdom and Power!!! Keep em' comin' and I'll keep buyin' em'!!

Public Enemy Supporter For LIFE!!!

Not one of their greatest, but not bad either. Believe me, Hip-Hop has taken a turn for the worse and these guys still hold their head well above water

If you liked Revolverlution then I think you will enjoy this. It is another set of unreleased tracks--a must if you want everything by Public Enemy. Listen to the samples above, and if you like those, then you will enjoy the whole CD.
