iTunes Review

As a hip-hop group soldiering on after 25 years of service, Public Enemy still has a vitality worth enjoying. Coming mere months after the excellent Most of My Heroes Still Don't Appear on No Stamp, The Evil Empire of Everything shows PE as a lean, mean machine. Chuck D's definitive bark rages against injustice and keeps up the energy as he makes his points of view known and known again. "Riotstarted," with guitarist Tom Morello and punk icon Henry Rollins, drives with a hard, steely beat and a near-hoarse declaration of Chuck's fierce independence. "Beyond Trayvon" breaks down the Trayvon Martin era of racial profiling. "Don't Give Up the Fight" takes on a spiritual vibe with Ziggy Marley on board. "Everything," featuring jazz saxophonist Gerald Albright and soul singer Sheila Brody, nicks a beautiful Stax-Volt vibe. "Notice (Know This)" casts a suspicious eye on the egocentric hip-hop attitudes of those battling for the thrones of Jay-Z and Kanye West. Flavor Flav even mocks reality TV (oh, the irony!) on "Broke Diva," adding a touch of comic relief.

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...
