No way. I don't see how this is a discussion. It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back is considered the greatest rap album ever made. Fear Of A Black Planet and Countdown To Armageddon are as good. NWA have Straight Outta Compton. Public Enemy didn't come thru as a moment in time. They're one of the great groups period.
How is PE's impact still relevant right now?
And if it is, is it bigger than NWA's?
Not that I'm hating on PE, but NWA changed the world. Gangsta/thug/mafioso/drug whatever you wanna call it comes from NWA. One can make a good argument over who had the better albums, but it's no argument as to who has/d the bigger impact….not close.
If both could get in at the same time, that'll be great. But if only one gets the nod, it should be NWA this year, followed by PE.
