There is no group more dedicated to providing knowledge and power to the people in their hip-hop career than Public Enemy. Today’s #DefJam30 mix is in honor of the strongest group to ever speak the truth to masses. All 30 minutes are slammed by DJ Mister Cee, the wax master of NYC’s Hot 97 FM and the original DJ for Big Daddy Kane. He’s also one of the main reasons you enjoy Notorious B.I.G’s rhymes, as he was the one that passed his demo on to the powers that got Big in the game.
The fact that Public Enemy can command their own singular mix is enough to praise the musical accomplishments and influence they’ve had on the culture. Not only uplifting and bringing light to political themes, Chuck D personified the strength of a hardcore rhymer that could flip his aggression into a rally cry for justice. He is the voice of Def Jam. Period. Flavor Flav cut the tension with wit, humor and unchained style. Plus he is just dope. Terminator X on the cuts, no one could see him on the tables. The production team The Bomb Squad are as much of PE as the group members. Public Enemy also hold the title of greatest remix in hip-hop with “Shut ‘Em Down” produced by Pete Rock. No debate.
Get into the mix as Mister Cee grabs select cuts from PE’s glorious Def Jam history.
