      This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History | - RAPstation.com:

      1991...........one of the last great years before the counterinsurgency in hip hop took over with Dr. Dre's Chronic and we started embracing black death and disrespect.

      October 3rd- Public Enemy released their platinum-selling 4th album “Apocalypse ‘91” – The Enemy Strikes Black on Def Jam Records , on this day in 1991.

      Classics tracks like “Shut ‘Em Down” , “Nighttrain” and a remake of “Bring The Noise” with heavy metal bad Anthrax , prompted hip-hop heads to call this set the “birth of hardcore rap”.

      Album cuts like “Lost At Birth” , “Rebirth” and “Move” would bring underground hip-hop to a whole other level.

      The album produced the hit single “Can’t Truss It”. Pete Rock’s remixes to singles like “Nighttrain” and “Shut ‘Em Down” also ushered in the era of “the hip-hop remix”, which would see rap singles flipped entirely from their original versions which is common place in the industry until this day.

      “Apocalypse ‘91” also saw Gary “G” Wiz Rinaldo come to the forefront of The Bomb Squad production sound in regards to P.E. records , bringing in a heavy drum influence as well as meshing it with melodic horn lines while all the while keeping P.E.’s explosive sound.

      baddest remix ever
      [nomedia]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ7gE7seeOA&feature=related[/nomedia]

      Now all those above were just the videos for the most part, this album had one of the craziest intro songs ever with Lost at Birth (that we used for the show we had with Chuck D)

      In Rebirth, Chuck D showcases what it means to be man with ,"and they ask me where I get it, I got it from my pops when a man's in the house and all the bullshit stops!"

      I Don't Want to be Called Yo Nigga is pretty self explanatory in how it was before it's time

      How to Kill a Radio Consultant detailed how black radio programmers sell out and how many of the stations aren't even owned by the people they "cater" their music towards

      Move discussed how those who aint about it taking up space and need to get out the way

      1 Million Bottlebags explores the reality how alcohol and liquor destroys the black community.

      More News at 11 and Letter to the New York Post is PE addressing they critics who are rarely other rappers but media conglomerates that would seek to destroy their image.

      All in all one of the greatest hip hop albums that is still much more relevant than all the bs consumer promoting, disrespectful misogynistic, sex for profit, crack dealing, love your oppressor's lifestyle, step n fetch, hip hop dalmations Gangstalicious, Thugnificent, Tubesteak coonery buffoonery, genocide on wax wack shit that other "hip hop" outlets would tell you is "hot" or "classic". In the words of PE................don't believe the hype!
