The Illustrated Origin of Public Enemy





On this Memorial Day, Long Island Rap Blog continues to honor hip-hop's first militant rap group, Public Enemy. Here, we get a few different perspectives on the PE collective's origins, as illustrated by the brilliant Ed Piskor. The pages above come from his Hip Hop Family Tree graphic novels, which are collected in print form by Fantagraphics and online through Boing Boing. Salute!

    1. Hi Harley,

      If by "the artist or you guys" you mean Public Enemy, I have no direct connection with them. If you're looking for more information on Long Island Rap Records, email longislandrapblog@gmail.com.
