Tricky riffs on the flava of his fave PE album

''Public Enemy don't sound like anything you've ever heard before. I mean, most artists nowadays, they all sound like someone else. No one's got their own sound, you know what I mean? [Public Enemy] just totally got their own vibe. It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, that's my favorite album out of all of them. It's just, like, their lyrics album. That's the stuff I'm into: stuff I've never heard before, new sounds.''
