Throwback Album of the Day – It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back – Public Enemy

Public Enemy. When you talk about groups that sparked controversy, there’s NWA, and then 3000 miles away, you have Public Enemy. One of the main messages in Hip Hop that was conveyed through hardcore rap, was to bring social awareness to the issues that people were struggling with. Public Enemy did this loud and proud, and this album is one of the prime examples of how they delivered that. Chuck D & FLAVOR FLAAAAV were the ultimate hype duo of the 80s, and the type of hip hop we’re missing in this current generation. As my mother loves to say “You young kids don’t know nothin’.” You may be right mom, but what I do know right now, is that this is a great album and should be enjoyed by all, so enjoy.
