Chuck D of rap instigators Public Enemy has promised two new albums in 2012.
Chuck told Billboard that the legendary political hip-hop act will release an album titled Most Of My Heroes Still Don’t Appear On No Stamp (referencing a line from ‘Fight The Power’ from 1990’s classic Fear Of A Black Planet’s) in June and then The Evil Empire Of Everything in September.
He confirmed that Bomb Squad member Gary G-Wiz will be working on the first album. Chuck described the albums as “two concise statements that are connected in the same breath.”
He first spoke about Most Of My Heroes… in mid-2011, saying “We have never been in the music business to make friends. We’ve never been the type to kiss ass. We’ve always strived not to repeat ourselves album to album.”
The two albums will be the first Public Enemy releases since 2007’s widely-ignored but critically well-received How Do You Sell Soul To Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul?
