Configa has been deep in the trenches for several years and has finally emerged with an album the world needs to hear. Having refined his production process, Configaration Vol 1 can rightly be called a Magnum Opus (he wont mind me saying!) due to the quality of the music and selection of features who do not disappoint, from the endorsement of Public Enemy's Chuck D, to the Godfather of rap, Spoonie Gee, to Juice Crew legend Craig G, a banger with Reks, a welcome introduction to a dope emcee called Vietnam and even a feature from the late great Sean P!
Public Enemy – Most Of My Heroes Don’t Appear On No Stamp / The Evil Empire Of Everything 2xCD [SPIT
Would you believe that Public Enemy have been releasing music for 25 years now? I guess so, but that is quite an impressive time, especially as they still maintain that hardcore edge. Public Enemy released what co-founder Chuck D calls "two albums book-ending Summer 2012" earlier in the year. Together Most Of My Heroes Don't Appear On No Stamp and The Evil Empire Of Everything represent the artistic and technological crossroads that Public Enemy yet again find themselves at. Digital distribution, a virtual recording studio and a lot on the band's collective mind made dual albums not only a bold move, but a necessary one since their last album five years ago.
Public Enemy first came to fame in the mid to late 80’s with hits such as ‘Don’t Believe The Hype’, ‘911 (is a joke)’, and ‘Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos’ gaining a major worldwide fan base because of their politically charged lyrics and outspoken views on institutionalised racism in America.
20 years ago Public Enemy emerged as a force to be reckoned with. Chuck D especially became a powerful and influential figure worldwide, speaking out on political and socials matters that caused the C.I.A. to constantly track the entire group. Griff left, reappeared, and stirred up hatred due to racist remarks, which also resulted in 3 attempts on his life. Flava Flav started a reality TV career. And Terminator X walked out for good.
There is a new Public Enemy album set to invade our shores in December! Aptly titled, 'New Whirl Odor', Public Enemy are back with the beats and the agenda that matters. Chuck D, Professor Griff and Flavor Flav are united again with a common cause.
