Zane Lowe's Radio 1 'Masterpiece' series this Tuesday features Public Enemy - and a chat with Bono on the landmark release of 'It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back'.


'It's not just one of the finest RAP records ever but one of the finest records ever PERIOD. It was released way back in 1988 but it's politically charged lyrics and innovative use of sampling paved the way for a musical shift in both rap AND rock. We want to remind you just how incredibly powerful and explosive this album is.'
