REWIND: Public Enemy - 'Prophets Of Rage'

Remember the days when hip hop wasn't typically characterised by materialism, male power and arrogance? An era when the genre's lyrical focus was defined by revolution, equality, intelligence and confrontation? Here is Public Enemy's explosive 'Prophets Of Rage', lifted from the classic 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back', the group's second album, releases in 1988 via the legendary Def Jam Recordings. In 2003, the album was ranked number 48 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, the highest ranking of all the hip hop albums on the list.
