About this Artist
Public Enemy have spent over 25 years delivering socio-political messages that give voice to those who have long been ignored, are unafraid to question institutional injustices and challenge both leaders and laymen alike to work for change. Their musical and lyrical intensity, eloquence and depth are matched by few, an explosive combination that that feeds both mind and soul. Their artistry draws unwavering critical acclaim and legions of worldwide fans who have flocked to concerts in over 83 countries, during 2000 concerts, on 84 tours. The New York Times named Public Enemy’s music to their list of the “25 Most Significant Albums of the Last Century” and in 2005 The Library of Congress included Fear of a Black Planet in their National Recording Registry. Three albums are certified multi-platinum, three more are gold, with four gold singles and a platinum-selling home video. As resonant now as ever, Public Enemy’s “Harder Than You Think” rose to #4 on the UK pop charts in 2012 and in 2013 the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
