Public Enemy ‎– It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back


So begins Public Enemy's sophomore album, It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back. And yes, you need the warning. Their debut album, Yo! Bum Rush The Show, dropped like a bomb, and its follow-up was no slouch either. Most consider it one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever. It certainly says something that, in the notoriously 'here-and-now' world of hip-hop, an album from around 15 years ago can still command so much respect - not just from hip-hop fans, but from practically everyone.

Arguments about what the greatest hip-hop album (or even greatest Public Enemy album) is are ultimately useless. All you need to know is that it's great. Not many rap albums are indespensible. This is.
