Hip Hop Classics
When 'It Takes a Nation of Millions' announced it's arrival with it's unforgettable air raid siren intro in 1988, it transformed Rap's landscape forever. Apart from making the bus ride to school tolerable, if somewhat more rebellious, it cemented the credibility of Rap from a passing fad to having a serious voice with a serious political message. The message of the ghetto transmitted into the safety of my plush, all mod cons, expatriate home in Saudi Arabia. I was determined to correct the wrongs and start a revolution (still not televised) from the side of my pool-side bed. Unsurprisingly, my Black Panther movement failed to materialise but it certainly made me aware of the indignity and racism still being suffered in 'Black America'.

They were often referred to as the Clash of Rap for their millitant style, accolade indeed. Chuck D called PE 'The Black CNN' and when you heard Chuck's booming baritone, you couldn't help but listen. Fierce!
