He Got Game (1998)

Public Enemy, He Got Game

TIME AND AGAIN Public Enemy clocks in with its best album in years

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Public Enemy; Genre: Soundtracks

Reuniting Public Enemy’s original members and production posse, Chuck D & Co. bring the noise on their best album in years. PE demonstrate they can still drop a hooky single (the title track) and take on Big Issues (like corrupt shoe companies) with panache. Most importantly, their beats still—as Flavor Flav’s track is titled—''Shake Your Booty,'' proving rap’s notorious polemicists are back in the game.
