Chuck D. of Public Enemy

Photography by Rick McGinnis

Public Enemy were on their way to being the biggest rap group in the world. When they broke big at the end of the ’80s, they were considered revolutionary, not just for their black power politics but for their sound, which dispensed with the cyclical drum loops and increasingly smooth-sounding production of rap records in favor of clattering rhythm samples and dissonant walls of noise.
