"Public Enemy deliver their signature style with an angst and tenacity typical of men half their age, combined with the wisdom of 25 years in the rap game."
"What makes Most of My Heroes so good isn't just PE's usual revolution-keen lyrics -- it's also the album's evolution-keen production... These O.G.s seize the moment by spiking their usual formula with newer, weirder, and welcome musical elements."
"This is the sound of true believers who give not a damn about fashion, they remain true to the sounds and sensibilities they laid out back in the late '80s... The music remains vital and vibrant... As long as Public Enemy's heroes remain consigned to the margins, they'll still make music as dynamic as this."

Public Enemy's newest destroys the competition.
25 years is a long journey in any artist's career, especially a recording group even more incredible in the genre of rap and hip hop. Public Enemy releases the first of two highly anticipated albums in 2012 with "Most Of My Heroes STILL Don't Appear On NO Stamp," an explosive musical lyrical statement to the Planet Earth. 11 tracks laden with the sonic and word fury this group has been known for. Complete with interludes saluting the rebels of freedom,directly spoken over beats to tie it all together. CHUCK D, FLAVOR FLAV, DJ LORD, PROFESSOR GRIFF the baNNed and S1WS all contribute in a big, necessary way. RUN TILL IT'S DARK, GET UP STAND UP, CATCH THE THROWN and the single and video I SHALL NOT BE MOVED speak volumes by their titles alone. It's a new sound with the CLASSIC Bomb Squad like assembly approach with contributors like ZTRIP, LARGE PROFESSOR, BUMPY KNUCKLES, with BROTHER ALI, CORMEGA, and Hall Of Famer DMC and others. The first NEW studio album since 2007, Public Enemy planned 2012 to be a unique recording output of sight and sound after the result of listening and watching these past 5 years. A must millennium anthem for the music masses galore.

Public Enemy's second album of 2012 leaves no stone unturned. Full on, no compromising music for the head, body and soul.
The second blast installment from 'the Rolling Stones of the rap game,' Public Enemy. "The Evil Empire Of Everything" leaves no stones unturned. The fraternal, not identical, twin album of "Most Of My Heroes Still Don't Appear On No Stamp," the albums are said to talk to each other while the listener rivets in. Again the team spreads collaboration into a soldier's reach into radical musical troops, contributors ZIGGY MARLEY, HENRY ROLLINS, DAVY DMX, and introducing lesser known names to the Planet Earth through their similar music and message vision. Songs like DON'T GIVE UP THE FIGHT, BEYOND TRAYVON, ICEBREAKER speak loud and say plenty in these times today. And the song ...EVERYTHING speaks volumes on the world we live in right here and right now. This is a great fitting match, a more eclectic avant garde album, to the Part 1 "Most Of My Heroes Still Don't Appear On No Stamp" release.
