The original members were Chuck D original name Carlton Ridenhour; b. August 1, , Queens, New York , U. August 1, , Long Island. Public Enemy resulted and brought radical Black political ideology to pop music in an unprecedented fashion on albums with titles that read like party invitations for leftists and warning stickers for the right wing: Yo!
How Public Enemy Made ‘It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back’
Release Date: Tracklist. Yes this album is a must have. I still prefer 'Yo! Bum Rush The Show' to this album, but nevertheless this is one of the greatest albums. Nice review, you went into detail.
Bum Rush the Show was an invigorating record, but it looks like child's play compared to its monumental sequel, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back , a record that rewrote the rules of what hip-hop could do. That's not to say the album is without precedent, since what's particularly ingenious about the album is how it reconfigures things that came before into a startling, fresh, modern sound. Public Enemy used the template Run-D. This coincided with a breakthrough in Chuck D 's writing, both in his themes and lyrics. It's not that Chuck D was smarter or more ambitious than his contemporaries -- certainly, KRS-One tackled many similar sociopolitical tracts, while Rakim had a greater flow -- but he marshaled considerable revolutionary force, clear vision, and a boundless vocabulary to create galvanizing, logical arguments that were undeniable in their strength.
