Editors’ Notes

It's hard to believe, but it's been 25 years since Public Enemy released its landmark debut album, Yo! Bum Rush the Show. The potent blend of Chuck D's commanding flow and revolutionary lyrics, Flava Flav's goofy hype-man antics, Terminator X's razor-sharp cuts, and The Bomb Squad's frenetically funked-out production (not to mention Professor Griff and S1Ws) made PE worldwide superstars and helped propel rap music out of the hood and into the suburbs. Three more certified classics followed, before Snoop, Dre, and G-Funk pushed Public Enemy out of the spotlight. But PE never quit, and has been steadily dropping new music ever since. Most of My Heroes... is PE's ninth full-length since Apocalypse 91, following up 2007's over-looked mouthful How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul?. Though now into their 50s, Chuck and Flav still sound on-point, and the production is strong. We also get impressive collabos with Brother Ali, Z-Trip, Bumpy Knuckles, Large Professor, and Cormega. Another quality offering from hip-hop's elder statesmen.

Customer Reviews

The greatest is back!!!

This is another solid album from the Greatest rap group of all time. The production is great and the rhymes show wisdom without being outdated. I think the "Rolling Stones of the rap game" have proved that you can still have a long career in HIP-HOP, even when you stay to your core beliefs.

What's interesting is the title. MOST OF MY HEROES STILL DON'T APPEAR ON NO STAMP implies that even with a black president, People like Stokely Carmichael, Louis Farrakhan, Assatta Shakur, Mary Mccloud Bethune,etc. still are not honored and appreciated in American society. With black unemployment now at 14% and with black on black violence still a problem, knowing the history of people who fought to open doors would be a source of pride and inspiration.
Black history didn't start with Dr. King and end with Barack Obama. The album does a good job of highlighting our forgotten heroes.

This album is a Banger from start to finish. Ironically, the weaker cuts happen to be the singles. I SHALL NOT BE MOVED and GET IT IN are not the best songs on the album. Besides that, you can listen to the cd straight through.

My personal favorite so far is HOOVERMUSIC. I find the song entertaining and poignant at the same time.
Overall, another solid cd from the GREATEST OF ALL TIME.

That beat is sick! I had to listen to the lyrics a few times to get everything Chuck was saying, WOW.

Thank You

Finally the world got too messed up for PE to stay silent... And they come back and drop a bomb on both "the establishment" and modern hip-hop at the same time. This is what real rap is: intelligent, political, and passionate. One day we will look back at this record as the soundtrack of 2012.

Public Enemy rewrote the rules of hip-hop, becoming the most influential and controversial rap group of the late '80s and, for many, the definitive rap group of all time. Building from Run-D.M.C.'s street-oriented beats and Boogie Down Productions' proto-gangsta rhyming, Public Enemy pioneered a variation of hardcore rap that was musically and politically revolutionary. With his powerful, authoritative baritone, lead rapper Chuck D rhymed about all kinds of social problems, particularly those plaguing...
