Public Enemy Back in Studio

December 4 [16:00 EDT] -- Rapper Chuck D. told MTV back in May that a Public Enemy record was "on the horizon" and now it is finally a reality. A spokesperson at Def Jam says that original members, Chuck D., Flavor Flav, and the original line-up, including the controversial Professor Griff, are in the studio recording their first album in three years.

Public Enemy's 1988 album, "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back," firmly established them as leaders in the rap world. "The Source" recently voted that LP as "The Best Hip Hop Album of All Time."

Public Enemy disbanded in 1994 due to internal problems, including Flavor Flav's numerous drug-related arrests. The new album, "Resurrection," is due in March, and is going to be used as the soundtrack for Spike Lee's upcoming film, "He's Got Game," starring Denzel Washington.
