Ask members of Generation Z what they know about the group, Public Enemy, and some may say “Fight The Power”, a few may even know that they contributed to developing the art of rap, and while those who aren’t up on their history might mention Flavor Flav and reality shows, real hip hop fans know that Pubic Enemy was formed to meet a need in the black community. Police killings and mass incarceration that we see in 2020, was even more frequent and brutal in the 1980’s and 1990’s, so Public Enemy decided to make music that would draw attention to the social concerns of the African American community.
With Public Enemy, radical political energy spread to the masses and transformed the minds of those who listened. At the same time, the music industry was being washed with more “ghetto-centric” rap, with artists whose lyrics were more focused on the destruction of the Black community. Even though Public Enemy was powerful enough to sell millions of records, and be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, major artists today don’t use the same lyrical content that speaks against the “powers that be” and try to uplift their Black communities, because those kinds of songs won’t get airplay.
There’s good news though, for those who seek knowledge, truth, and light. Public Enemy’s “Minister of Information” and co-founding member, Professor Griff, has signed with Xperienc On Demand to bring that same kind of information given in Public Enemy’s powerful lyrics to television.
