Chuck D Lends His Voice To Something That Sounds Like Bomb Squad Glory (Audio)
One of the attributes that’s made Public Enemy great is that the beats and sonic vibe always seemed to bulldoze the moment for Chuck D’s verbal essay. A big part of that is The Bomb Squad, the production collective of the Brothers Shocklee (which also included Chuck) to obliterate samples and make a Head’s brand of symphonic cacophony.
Not a P.E. or a Bomb Squad track, Chuck’s Spoken Word contributions to Crummie Beats’ “KickYoMuthaFucknAss” are definitely in that tradition. The slamming beat and Chuck’s grim message conjure feelings that We (the culture) aren’t to be pushed over, no matter what happens.
