All in Old School Hip Hop
“Chuck D” let me know he's nice, with “Public Enemy” there wasn't a pretense to keep up with fashion the noise sensationalized my senses and worldview, “Public Enemy” was and still are the Black Superheroes that afforded me the cape to wear , not father figures, but big uncles who guided me through my trouble you.
