Show #86 - Black Steel In The Hour #HipHop50: Revisiting It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back #1988Series

YEAAAAHHHHHHH BOYEEEEEEEEE! Public Enemy’s sophomore record It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back was a line in the sand for where rap music was heading in 1988. An album that defined an era for Def Jam and thrust conscious rap into the mainstream, Millions is the gold standard for golden era hip hop. For the start of Black History Month 2023, we’re revisiting the impact of this landmark album.

About the #1988Series:

1988 was a banner year for Black music. Hip Hop solidified itself as a chart contenter, New Jack Swing was taking over, and classic albums hit the stores. This year-long series will honor important moments in one of the most important years in Black music history.
