    :D

    And why is this relevant here...?

    Run DMC paired up with Aerosmith
    and
    Public Enemy paired up with Anthrax

    (Plus, both are groundbreaking groups, regardless if you like that genre or not.)

    Public Enemy, cause they don’t rhyme to riddle.

    Ooh... this sh!t is hard. I think I’d probably enjoy listening to RUN DMC a bit more these days, and they were the first hip hop band I ever bought but.... PE was life changing. So important.

    I gotta go Public Enemy.

    Public Enemy Number 1.

    Weirdly, I've seen them live (maybe twice). They came to my home town, which is just crazy (our "city" is tiny).

    +1 unless it’s “Walk this Way” and then I think I just enjoyed the collaboration and the beat.

    Public Enemy and Rage Against the Machine (most of the members at least) have formed a new group, Prophets of Rage. I gotta go with Public Enemy.

    Ice-T....all the albums that led to "Body Count" are killer.

    Rhyme Pays
    Power (BEST intro and outro ever!!)
    The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech...Just Watch What You Say
    OG - Original Gangster

    CLASSICS!!!! From sounding like he recorded in a closet (probably did with those old school home studios rappers would use), to the KILLER production on "OG", there was always a "heaviness" that Public Enemy often had, but I just always dug Ice-T's lyrics more than what PE was doing. Plus, Flava Flav was a little too much of a buffoon for me.

    PE has some tracks that blow me away, but my stand-out favorite of theirs is "By the Time I Get to Arizona". Angry, Violent, awesome production by the Bomb Squad (I think that was their producer at that time - don't remember). Honestly, what really soiled PE for me was their work with Anthrax. I just thought "Bring the Noise" was a bit goofy and bo-bo.
