New Public Enemy Album Out Next Week
Iconic New York hip hop group Public Enemy are set to release a new album next Tuesday, July 4. It’s called Nothing Is Quick In The Desert, and it was supposed to be a surprise—until the Spanish site Binaural published the news over the weekend, prompting HipHopDX to text Chuck D for confirmation. (“yes,” Chuck said.)
Nothing Is Quick In The Desert is expected to be a free download. No tracklist or other details are available yet, but according to Binaural, one song called “Rest In Beats” is dedicated to recently deceased colleagues.
Public Enemy’s previous album was 2015’s Man Plans God Laughs. Meanwhile, Prophets of Rage — the Rage Against The Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup featuring Chuck D — will release their debut self-titled album on September 15.
