Twenty Five Years And Still Public Enemy #1

April 18, 2013


It’s a big week for Public Enemy; They released an 8-vinyl box set on Monday April 15, tonight they are getting inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, and they’ll tour the US in spring & summer.

Twenty five years have passed since Yo! Bum Rush The Show was released, which is an album that is very dear to me.

I bought it when it was released in 1987  in a Mt. Pleasant, Michigan record store, and I still have it. Having never heard nor heard OF the band before, I selected the album based on their obvious love of the Oldsmobile 98; not the Benz or the Beemer, nor the Cadillac, but the lowly “98”. Damn if their ode to that underdog on You’re Gonna Get Yours isn’t one hell of a hip hop jam to this day.
