I think itís fair to say the production hasnít aged that well, as many albums from that time havenít, but you have to consider what impact it made at the time of release. The fact that in terms of sampling, it was revolutionary. The fact that the lyrics were explosive to anything else at the time. Chuck Ds commanding voice. It was just ill man. How can you front on any of the tracks? Rebel without A Pause? Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos etc?

5 fucking mics.

i think the production has aged very well. maybe not as well as critical beatdown, but close.

I haven't heard this album in a long time. I'm gonna have to hear it again because i forgot what most of the songs sounded like. I'm not really a Public Enemy fan even though i like Chuck D but most of their beats suck. I like their first album and Apocalypse 91 The Enemy Strikes Black album and that's it. I haven't heard Fear Of A Black Planet album but i'm gonna check it out. I gave up on them after their 1994 album that has the songs i like called Give It Up, So Whatcha Gon Do Now, I Stand Accused. That 1994 album is terrible. I forgot the album title. How is Chuck D's solo album?

IMO - this is PEs best album - and a must have for any one who love Hip Hop

I think Apocalypse 91 The Enemy Strikes Black album is their best. I like the skit on there that comes before How To Kill A Radio Consultant song. Chuck D is talking on the skit about blacks and he says one minute worth of shit. Yo this is it. I wanna talk about us and us. Disgusted at the uncle tom dropping bombs in the hood. Sellout niggas selling drugs. And how can you love living in the projects? LOL. Getting checks and giving it back to the government. Bust your ass to pay the rent. Now let's take a look at that word project. Another word for experiment. On one side of the street is a church. Across the road is a liquor store. Both of them keeping us poor. Keeping us down. My hood ain't considered a town. And the joint packed back to back with blacks hahahahahahahahahahaha. Full of brothers doing a bid who did something but did not think and a college full of black thinkers who ain't doing a damn thing collectively. And the negro. Where the fuck does he go? Cause right here is apartheid. He can run but he can't hide.

Chuck is iLL - he said that KRS One is most feared though - i told him he was buggin - now i understand

CharlesJones

He said that about KRS? I think Chuck D, Paris, KRS are the most feared in rap by whites because of their knowledge about politics and this racist world. There's another funny skit on PE's Apocalypse 91 The Enemy Strikes Black album that comes after Shut Em Down song. There's a racist white guy that's a KKK member on there talking about he's glad that blacks are killing each other, selling drugs and getting locked up so the KKK doesn't have to kill them anymore hahahahahahahahahaha.

LORD NOSE
12-26-2009, 12:07 PM
He said that about KRS?


Yeah



KRS ONE is the most feared rapper ever. Changes the atmosphere of the room he walks in. Nobody says that they're a rapper when he walks in it. Rappers instead talk about other things they do when hes around. Its easier rather convenient to deny him, say hes from another time etc. rather than deal with him. While JAY Z may be the greatest because hes the epitome of many talents up to this point, but his work is a reflection of the times that has given the masses far less than his power can give. This reflects a saying the NOI would say in their teachings, why do the deaf, dumb and blind love the devil? That answer to that is because he gives them nothing'. This in a nutshell
is an answer in itself. Blastmaster KRS ONE has walked the talk.

could quote me on that
Chuck D
on Public Enemy Tour 61 Czech Republic





Def, Dumb, and Blind people can only judge what hits them in the ass.

That's a trip that Chuck thinks KRS is the most feared rapper. If i was in a room with KRS, i wouldn't be afraid of him LOL. Rappers always talking about how tight their lyrics are and how nice they are on the mic but when KRS comes around them, they get scared and say nothing? LOL. I can't picture that. KRS is a very knowledgable guy and you can tell he reads a lot. What amazes me about him is that he used to be homeless and now he's a rap star. KRS should be a example to homeless people that you can turn your life around and be somebody. If KRS isn't homeless anymore, how is it that there's so many homeless people? KRS wanted to change his life when he was homeless and that makes him stand out from other homeless people who continue to do nothing and expect the government to take care of them.

10/10 definitely, a timeless, classic and blueprint album, The Bomb Squad's production was ahead of it's time and this is easily one of the greatest rap albums ever made and should be essential in any discerning rap fans collection.
