Chuck D Offers Update On Public Enemy’s Two New Albums “Most Of My Heroes…” and “The Evil Empire of Everything”


(AllHipHop News) Public Enemy will mark the 25th anniversary of their 1987 debut album, Yo! Bum Rush the Show, with the release of the group’s 13th and 14th studio albums, respectively titled Most of My Heroes Still Don’t Appear on No Stamp and The Evil Empire of Everything.

Chuck D spoke on the group’s two new albums to Billboard: “They’re twins, fraternal twins – not identical, but they will talk to each other. The statement with these albums isn’t so much just within the content, but in the audacity of the release, just like, ‘What the hell? Two albums that bookend the summer? What the hell?!’

“But we know we’ve got a fan base that’s kind of acclimated and used to albums,” he continued, “because we were the first to come along and kind of bring a concept album to the hip-hop marketplace. So we oblige this year by doing not one, but two.

“Maybe in the past one would’ve been an A side and the other a B side, or it would’ve been a long CD, but halfway into making it we decided to have two different aspects, one that dealt with the whole movement of people and the other that deals with the situation of everything coming at you at once, like a blizzard.”

To date, features on the album are set to include Brother Ali, DMC, Bumpy Knuckles and Large Professor with more announcements to surely come closer to the first album’s time of release.

Public Enemy will perform this Sunday, May 27 at the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit, Michigan.

  • dominicancoke

    public enemy should cut the shit out like ya’ll legend’s but ya’ll old  don’t put no records out smh just do like them old rock groups do and tour relaxed and let your discography take care of you how ya’ll old asses gone rap its 2012 i mean L.L did it before ya’ll  and he quit

      Pimp! As long PE is saying something like they usually do I don’t really have a problem because just like all music you have a choice. If you don’t want to listen to them then don’t listen to them. Most of these new kats don’t talk about sh!t but we will endorse them but won’t endorse PE because they ar an old school group? Somthing is wrong with that…….I’m just sayin! 

      • dominicancoke

        nah i endorse pe 100% what i’m saying is sort of like if you put jordan and magic to play with kobe and lebron. rap skill’s changed too much since then homie they not the only rapper’s kicking knowledge listen to termonology or immortal tecnique or gredon square they kick knowledge with lyrical skill’s that are up to date.chuck d’s skills sorry to say it he does have a great voice but they are stuck on some 1989 shit they should keep on touring is not that era anymore

      • u pose a silly argument. Rap audiences doesnt have an expiration date, as well as rappers. Public enemy is bigger than your perception. in 2012 on their 80th tour, worldwide, and still doin over 2 1/2 hr shows. they still sell records too, eventhough you havnt bought one. And if you check “old” rock acts, they still make records too. What YOU should do is get too ‘old’ to be typing dumb shit.

      • thanks for mudering young dudif he knew anything old groups like U2 are the biggest touring act out they old and PE is hip hopversion of that … But young dude dont realize know and respect your history abeit hip hop or life  because everything you listen to or the way  your live your life is continued on by the lagacy’s of of the old heads here still doing it or not…..

      • dominicancoke

        how did he murdered me son? lol u2 and them tour because of their legacy which was way bigger than p.e no disrespect only people like rakim krs one and  ll cool j  cypress hill ice cube among others get that respect from me and had bigger careers than p.e and a larger fan base my argument is why this 50 somthing yr old men still trynna make new records they made classics just tour on that no one even cared  bout they new ish in the 90’s 

      • dominicancoke

        get the f*ck outta here son i bet you never bought they new shit or downloaded the new songs.people go to p.e concerts for two things to see flave and to hear them perform they classic ish same thing with u2 or kiss fans. nobody cares about their new material ..checkmate
