This is going to be BEYOND EPIC! It’s basically a music nerd’s wet dream. (Too much?) But there are no words that anyone can muster to really and truly talk about the full impact of Public Enemy on Hip Hop music and culture. They’re probably the most important Hip Hop act of all time, and even THAT’S an understatement to be honest.
