It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back - Public Enemy
Public Enemy always made it a mission to cause social awareness with their music. On their sophomore LP It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, they simultaneously created a great hip-hop album and a full-on movement for the genre. Everyone from Chuck D to Rick Rubin probably has some great insight on how they came together to bring this classic project to life. We’re even sure Flavor Flav can add some knowledge on the impact they ended up having on music. While the album itself can be considered a history lesson in cultural empowerment, a follow-up documentary would help fight the power all over again.
