New PE

I've known this shit from We Need Remedial English for around a month now (I need to check WNRE more often), but I didn't feel like bloggin this shit till now.

Anyways, the new Public Enemy album drops on my birthday, August 9th.

A review of Muse-Sick-N-Hour-Mess-Age stated that even when PE is at their worst, there is a certain excitment (no homo) to listening to them, especially Chuck D's voice.

So at the very least, it will be worth a listen. The details are still scarce:

The album features dead prez, MC Ren of N.W.A fame, Kam, Immortal Technique and more. The album is also entirely produced by hip-hop revolutionary Paris.

Okay, so it will basically feature alot of the political rappers who followed PE (Immortal Tech - good, Dead Prez - good) while giving jobs to some older west coast rappers (Ren, Kam <-also influenced by PE) and for whichever reason, all this shit is produced by Paris (no homo).

Paris? Why? What happened to Gary G. Whiz? Griff? DJ Johnny Juice? I wont even mention the Bomb Squad nor their weed carriers at this point.

Paris, from what Ive heard from him, has an overreliance on the P-Funk sample. He's not bad per se, he's just not outstanding. And produce the whole album? I don't know. Maybe it can work. We'll see.

Also - I heard some new Mix Master Mike shit. Fuckin good. Nhjic.

Raw Public now has 87 90 99 friends. Be a part of history or become it.

As much as I like Public Enemy, this will probably suck. Paris was never a very good producer.

The new Immortal Technique could be great though.

i think DJ Johnny Juice worked pretty well (no homo?) for them.

Johnny Juice did all the scratching on Nation of Millions.

without the bomb squad PE's shit just doesnt sound the same.

and oh yeah, i heard Paris got a job at like, an accounting firm or something. i read some interview where he was like "yeah, im bringing down the system from the inside" or some lame ass cop out shit like that.

guess its cool hes working, but that fools beats are usually weak. im much less excited about this PE album now.

His site actually has a lot of good investment advice on it.

No John Stockton.
