Public Enemy - The Original Public Enemy Number One ( WBAU promo)
Discovered in the basement of Chuck D moms carefully filed away is a gem found within a taped broadcast of Doctor Dres' radio show. The original Public Enemy number one was played on this show during a radio beef between Doctor Dre and WBLS Mr Magic, and intermit-tin with the released single from the previous February 1987. The story was that Scott LaRock and his MC Blastmaster KRS ONE
had let loose a verbal barrage on Dres radio show, in rebuttal to the Bronx-Queensbridge rap battles taking place at that time. Magic then disses the Public Enemy number one record by saying the 'beat is dope but the rap was kinda weak', setting off a World Rapwar 3 of the NY airwaves at that time DJs Red Alert and Chuck Chill Out down the dial at 98.7 KISS -FM included. No pun intended a magical time, Dre plays the original and cuts the instrumental as well which was tearing up the Latin Quarter the premier hip hop club that era. Peep the names within the song are different like Sugar Ray Leonard, and Serious C of the Choice 5 MCs also known recording wise as Serious Lee Fine from Uniondale Strong Island.
