Public Enemy transcends the confines of rap and pop music, remaining one of the African Ameri-can community’s most important messengers, digital music’s greatest champions, and a rare rap group who need not rely on misogynistic and pro-violent lyrics. The group burst onto both the rap and pop music world in 1987 with their first single, “Public Enemy #1,” a startling combination of Chuck D’s commanding orations, Hank Shocklee’s layered cacophony of musical noise, and Flavor Flav’s show-stopping antics to keep the message entertaining. The song is not only known for in-troducing a whole new sound to the rap genre, but for giving the group their name.
