“To those who think having ‘things’ is having it all, you may have nothing
For those who think they have ‘nothing,’ look around
you may have everything.”
These are the key lines in “Everything,” the second single off The Evil Empire of Everything, the second album released by Public Enemy in late 2012 (following Most of my Heroes Still Don’t Appear on no Stamp). The song is a tribute to ’60s soul and features vocals by Sheila Brody and sax by Gerald Albright.
The album’s cover was designed in his computer by 31-year-old Goleta, California artist Dwayne Farrar, who has muscular dystrophy and has spent the last 20 years on a wheelchair and has limited movement.
Other guests in The Evil Empire of Everything include Tom Morello, Henry Rollins, and Ziggy Marley.
