Public Enemy

Public Enemy is an American hip hop group formed by Chuck D and Flavor Flav on Long Island, New York, in 1985. The group came to attention for their political messages including subjects such as American racism and media. P.E. revolutionized hip-hop, expanding the music's sonic vocabulary while raising the stakes for its social impact.

Chuck D, the group's leader and conceptualist, claimed at their peak that "rap music is the invisible TV station that Black America never had" and he ensured that Public Enemy addressed the concerns of Black America, picking up a thread left hanging by the radical soul and funk of the late 1960s and early '70s
