Public Enemy – Rebel Without A Pause

“Yes, the rhythm the rebel without a pause I‘m lowering my level”

 

takes-a-nation

Here we have rap at its finest, something that cannot be denied. What I am speaking of today is Public Enemy’s Rebel Without a Pause. Chuck D is a powerful MC, he drops hardcore political science over funky head rocking drums. The sample is so sick its similar to a tea kettle reaching its peak temperature about to explode then looped over again. Flav does his usual hype man duties but what I cannot ignore is the revolutionary scratching of Terminator X on the cut. X’s cutting on this record really does put the cherry on top and at the time made PE a force to be reckoned with. HHTT APPROVED

BDP – By All Means Necessary

One of the most powerful albums of all time in HIP-HOP would have to be BDP’s “By All Means Necessary” released in 1988. The cover alone is sick, I love the playoff of Brother Malcolm’s picture. When I heard “My Philosophy” I was shocked that a group so raw would have such a positive message. BDP was rugged looking as all hell but gave a proactive message to many ghetto youths, not a message of destruction but a message of rebuilding. Pick up this album if you love hip-hop, Scott La Rock live on.

 

I’m nice, here is a track off the LP “My Philosophy”
