Public Enemy Vs 50 Cent

(antiMusic) Public Enemy will go down as one of the true pioneers of rap but right now they feel they aren't getting the props they deserve and they don't like what has become of the genre when they look at today's big rap stars. In an interview with E4 Chuck D and Professor Griff discussed their legacy and the current state of rap. "We don't appreciate being written out of history," says Chuck. "We keep hearing about the Who, about Cream. I understand they made a contribution, but sh*t." When asked by the host Rick Edwards about today's mainstream rap, especially 50 Cent, Chuck gave a weary sigh and attacked Fiddy's popularity by saying, "There has to be a way of judging on quality of music, not quantity." Griff had even stronger words about 50 Cent and what the genre he helped pioneer has evolved into. "Rap has become a sad reality," says Griff. "50 Cent comes out with a movie that's a step-by-step instruction in how to be a thug. And sells it to children?"
