In this April 28, 1998 file photo, Chuck D from the rap group Public Enemy, speaks to Columbia University students in New York. Jermaine Hall, editor-in-chief of Vibe, the hip-hop magazine and website, says "In the ‘80s, whether it was KRS-One, Public Enemy, or the Native Tongues, that entire movement, it was very in tune with black history… They knew everything about Malcolm, about Martin, about Rosa Parks. Now, the new rappers just aren’t as in tune." (AP Photo/Stacy Zaferes)
