I love all genres of music and one of my favorite rap groups is PE. I would even say moreso that they are spoken word

MOST WANTED : Public Regulators Strikes Again

gimbal

PE holds it straight and f'ing heavy. This is some monstrous stuff. Chuck D hits it harder than anything you'll see on MTV Flava Flav strafes it like regular, and he gets the front mic on some of this The Mix Master, Terminator X, or who's the DJ on this -- must've been steel in that table -- bringing in mad X Force Not your Mamma's Hoodoo Get it. Clear the room. This one will hit you hard at ground zero.

Six Degrees of Public Enemy’s It Takes A Nation of Millions…

By Christopher R. Weingarten, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Down from Day One: Death Row Records

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

At first I couldn't tell what I was watching. It was late afternoon and I was lying on my parents 'bed, flipping channels and passively mapping out the night's homework. Every network seemed to be showing the same thing: a helicopter's-eye-view of people dashing down city blocks and lobbing projectiles; buildings on fire; smoke everywhere. It wasn't until they went to a reporter surveying the scene from a few miles away, blue-skied flatlands interrupted by… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Opening with a sonic collage straight out of Fear of a Black Planet, There’s a Poison Goin’ On… comes out of the gates sounding like classic Public Enemy, which is exactly what Public Enemy intended, since their slight sonic change-up on He Got Game didn’t result in a hit. In a way, PE’s feud with Def Jam over downloadable MP3 music was a good thing, since it brought them media attention, which is rare for a veteran hip-hop band. Such increased exposure also brought a minor controversy over “Swindlers Lust,” which some perceived as anti-Semitic, but this outrage was isolated because Public Enemy was now at the margins of hip-hop. They were no longer considered cutting-edge, and younger kids never picked up their records, so the only place for this controversy to reside was among the rock critics and aging fans who remembered when It Takes a Nation of Millions changed the world ten years prior. Chuck D must have known that they would be the only ones paying attention to the album, since it consciously copies PE’s past and never really breaks from that blueprint. In some respects, that’s a disappointment, since He Got Game showed that PE could subtly incorporate modern hip-hop and do it better than some modern acts. But There’s a Poison Goin’ On is nevertheless a strong album, even if it is doggedly classicist. It’s also dogmatic, with Chuck preaching to the converted about the evils of the record industry and conformity in hip-hop, which does become a little trying by the end of the record. But he delivers lyrically and PE delivers musically, in a manner that’s entirely familiar to fans of Public Enemy, offering a solid continuation of Apocalypse 91. Ultimately, it’s their most satisfying record in several years — which is a subtle difference that only the converted will notice. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
