Influential rap outfit Public Enemy will be releasing two albums during the course of 2012. The first album, Most of My Heroes Don’t Appear On No Stamp, will be released during the summer, while The Evil Empire of Everything will be released in September. For those who are keen on their Public Enemy, the former is a lyric from the Public Enemy track “Fight the Power.”
“They are two concise statements that are connected in the same breath,” Public Enemy’s Chuck D told Billboard.
Public Enemy hasn’t been totally underground since releasing their album How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul in 2007. They have been working with the Operation: Skid Row organization, which hosted a street festival benefiting the Los Angeles Community Action Network, or L.A. CAN, which is designed to help the city’s homeless population.
I am personally looking forward to hearing new music from Public Enemy. Their politically and culturally charged music has been a force in hip-hop, and it appears that they aim to continue making a statement through their music. When RapMusic.com finds out more concrete release dates for these albums, you guys will be the first to know.
