PUBLIC ENEMY – WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE GRID GOES DOWN

Public Enemy releases a brand new album in 2020. Definitely not the biggest Public Enemy fan here which I’m sure sounds crazy to most. I just never really got into their albums too much. This one was pretty much the same. One thing for sure is that they stay consistent. I do like their political stance on things and the messages they convey. I’m with them and I respect them, it’s just that I don’t care for the music too much. This album was pretty average to me. The songs that have more of a rock influence like “Yesterday Man” I didn’t really care for too much. I did like some of the more rap influenced songs with hard beats like “Toxic.” That joint was definitely a banger. And who can’t enjoy a 2020 version of “Fight The Power.” That’s always appreciated. Public Enemy fans will like this one, but to the casual rap fan, they might not be too impressed. It’s all about where you are on the timeline of rap history.

PUBLIC ENEMY – NOTHING IS QUICK IN THE DESERT

Public Enemy dropped off a surprise freeĀ album for fans. To start off, I know this will sound like sacrilege, but I am not really a fan of Public Enemy. I just never really got into their music too much. This album definitely didn’t change my mind on that. I thought that there was too much of a rock influence on here. It was way too heavy on guitars for my liking. The beats were definitely not the best. This wasn’t really something that I could see myself bumping in the ride. The lyrics were okay. Chuck D is definitely one of the most respected MC’s in rap history so I definitely give him the respect that is due. I just couldn’t really get down with this particular release. In my humble opinion, I’d pass on this record and if you are a Public Enemy fan, just go and pick up the old records.
