Det, John L, and Scott also finish the review of Public Enemy’s debut LP “Yo! Bum Rush The Show” and dig deeper into how Chuck D and Flav shifted the mindset of Hip Hop, filling the deep chasm between ignorance and knowledge-of-self with an unprecedented level of consciousness that was so desperately needed at the time.
