In Future Music Pioneers: Public Enemy we look at one of the bands that define conscious hip hop and their founder Chuck D who embraced the online record label and digital music economy years before many did.
Rebel Without a Pause was the first 12″ single I ever bought and it never left my record box as I traveled and DJed. I had the chance to meet Chuck D in 2001 in London, UK. He pushed aside the MTV crew to chat with me and sign his autobiography. The book outlined a modern manifesto for music. RESPECT!
