    Nowadays in Hip Hop we have the term a ‘conscious MC’ but over 20 years ago, a group known as Public Enemy revolutionised conscious Hip Hop forever.

    From their debut release, ‘Yo! Bum Rush The Show’ in 1987, they had cemented their place in music’s Hall of Fame.

    The pioneer and Hip Hop legend Chuck D spoke exclusively to The Hip Hop Chronicle before their final show in the UK.

He also reveals why Kanye West is the new Elton John and why KRS is most feared rapper.
