Yesterday, the legendary and pioneering Chuck D. celebrated his 63rd birthday. His role in popularizing hip-hop across the world is towering — and as an avid music listener, Public Enemy‘s work has played a major part of my life: The first cassette tape that I bought with my own money was Public Enemy’s The Apocalypse 91 . . . The Enemy Strikes Black.
Happy birthday, brother! May there be many, many, many, many more!
