Public Enemy x Cormega x Large Pro - "Catch The Thrown"

Just finished a front-to-back listen of my digital copy of Public Enemy's latest full-length, "Most Of My Heroes Still Don't Appear On No Stamp". I admit to have been sleeping on PE's last few albums, but this is actually very good, so do yourself a favor and cop it @ iTunes. Made up of only eleven songs, it's a tight album with little room for filler and Chuck D sounding as charged as he's done anytime in the last 10 years. I might drop a full review for this in time, but for now I will only say that it is highly recommended.

I was a little dissapointed that a legendary crew like P.E. decided to release their LP exclusively as a digital project, so I was pleased to learn that Chuck D has announced via Twitter that it will be available on both CD and vinyl on October 1st. Since the promotion overall has been seriously lacking, I don't think it will be no harm to throw you another freebie from the joint, especially as "Catch the Thrown" is already up on YouTube. The track is one of my early favorites, and besides impeccable performances from Mistachuck, it also features Cormega who's style and lyrics here brilliantly taps into the Public Enemy zone. I think it's safe to say that Large Professor is the producer of this cut, as he's a credited performer but does not add any vocals to the song.
