The Light Podcast: The Debut and IMPACT of Public Enemy

Part 1 of a LONG overdue discussion on the commercialization of Hip Hop and the effect it’s having on the culture. How can the studios market and distribute what they don’t understand? Why are we letting them get away with it?

Detrone pays homage to one of the greatest emcee’s of all time and memorializes a jazz/bebop legend who’s influence is still felt strong today.

Public Enemy‘s debut album “Yo! Bum Rush the Show” released in 1987 and was a force to be reckoned with. Chuck D and Flavor Flav kicked the door in and exposed societal ills affecting our communities for what they were. PE taught us to open our eyes and think a little harder then we ever had before, while Terminator X made sure we felt the urgency of the message contained in this classic LP.

Scott, John L, and Detrone review each track and discuss how important this album was to Hip Hop, but also how Chuck and Flav made us politically conscious – whether we knew it or not.
