4.0 out of 5 stars Chuck D goes solo, hits a homer 2 May 2002
By RET - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Public Enemy, seminal hip hop group and instrumental in breaking the art form into the mainstream, came to an end with a very typical, but sad story. The group split, its many talented members pursued solo projects, and none of them ever went anywhere. Chuck D should have been the exception to this, and this album is the proof.
"Autobiography of Mistachuck" is first rate hip hop. Chuck still has his voice and he still has his poetry, but he brings it to a much funkier and more soulful musical style than was ever used by Public Enemy. It's a strong solo release, and it should have attracted more commerical success than it did. Check tracks 1, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 12. 1, 5 and 10 are great!
The hip hop scene is notoriously fickle. Figures of great talent rise and fall faster than in any other genre of music, disappearing of the radar screen to all but those who appreciate the old school. Gangster rap was still in full effect in the mid 90s, when this album was released. I think Chuck D acknowledges this plain fact of doing business in Track 1, with a sample from "Clockers." However, don't confuse the real thing with the LA gansta wannabes ... Chuck D's "Autobiography of Mistachuck" is the bomb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rhyme animal strikes again... 15 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Schmooove -- that's all I can say. This definitely isn't the same old PE vibe that we're used to, but it still makes a hell of a statement. The deep-soul tracks show that Chuck D is growing up without stepping down. Some of the production is a little too slow, but this album overall is a dope change of pace from one of hip-hop's overlords.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ene-D Strikes Back... 24 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're a PE fan, this is a must. Yes, a must. D slows things down considerably in this solo debut, but the beats are unmistakably PE, and as always, the lyrics are clear, harsh and make you clinch your fist every once in a while... as only Mistachuck can do.
5.0 out of 5 stars Presenting Mistachuck D Changing The People Around Him! 2 Aug 2014
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's very telling that the demise of Public Enemy in the mid 90's coincided with my complete dismissal of hip-hop. They were among those within the genre who laid the groundwork for my interest in the highly conscious and politicized end of the genre. So they split off to do solo projects in much the same manner as Arrested Development,another hip-hop group of a similar bent that I enjoyed. Of course this isn't about me is it? Its about Chuck D,the most powerful voice in Public Enemy and therefore its patriarchal figure. But this was 1996. Tupac was gone,The Fugees were ascendant and Biggie Smalls would soon be gone. In short hip-hop was at a critical juncture in its evolution. And since Chuck D is someone who I'd musically describe as a total funk artist in hip-hop dressing? He was more than qualified by the time of his solo debut to comment on this situation,

The title song starts out the album in with DJ's and MC's jiving about Chuck's new solo project,debating its pros and cons while,even in the song itself Chuck gives them some rhymes to really debate about: his manifesto on this whole project. The song takes on a very clear cut James Brown influenced funk sound led strongly by rhythm guitar riffs,always at the foundation of PE Bomb Squad but presents itself here without any moderating elements. "No" takes that sound and clearly states what Chuck dislikes about hip-hop. "Generation Wrekked" is flat out brilliant-an out and out re-imagining of The Payback where he declares that the apathetic youth of the time consider that "if I can't change the people around me/I change the people around me". "Free Big Willie" and "Horizonal Heroin" have more of a soul-jazz flavor about them while "Talk Show Created The Fool" takes on the media's psychic numbing of its viewers with the accompaniment of Curtis Mayfield vocal samples.

"Underdog" and "But You **** The ****** In You?" are both very Isaac Hayes Movement style cinematic soul/funk-with Black Moses himself making a guest appearance on the later where,in his fine preacher man style,he tells the listener to continue bettering yourself even when your told all odds are against you. "Endonesia" focuses on the irony of the glorification of thuggish attitudes,especially a midst the black community. "The Pride" is a sweet cinematic groove again,this time with Chuck giving a literal autobiography of his early life-year by year and showcasing how Huey Newton,Woodstock,Kent State,Motown and the slaying of MLK were all parts of the connective thread of his life and message. "Paid" again offers a better solution for the thuggish members of the black community of the time to put their abilities to better use than violence and,if you skip a few minutes into it,you hear Chuck D give a distorted,Sir Nose/P-Funk style diatribe about the exploitation and mistreatment of black people in the current era.

There seems to be a general feeling across the eight others who apparently reviewed this album that this album wasn't as well received as it should be. In fact,what I first heard about it inR & B: The Essential Album Guide with CD (Audio) (Musichound Essential Album Guides) is so sarcastically mean spirited that it doesn't even merit mention in this review. Fact is? This album is very very different from a musically busy,often edgy soundscape you'd tend to find on a Public Enemy album. Also Chuck's call and response raps and emotional level with Flavor Flav is obviously stripped out. So you hear Chuck D's strong sociopolitical messages uncensored and uncut. What he also does here is give the album a very strong instrumental and lyrical narrative-illustrating the social problems he views around him and their possible solutions with music that begins very direct and spare to dynamic and more heavily arranged. It shows a future for conscious hip-hop that goes somewhat past PE's innovative sound,towards hip-hop's roots in late 60's/early 70's funk thematically. And for a solo debut? Chuck D couldn't have done very much better than that.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funky Blues Hip Hop, Great Lyrics 2 Nov 2003
By tsitrA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD use to be one of my favorites at the time i wrote the first review. Still like it and Chuck D knows what is going on, wish he would could here more from him. It is not typical Public Enemy it is more blues and rock mix with hip hop beat and fun and some insightful lyrics. Chuck seems able to see the big picture and people need to wake up and take a good look around to whats really going down.

Check out Adrenaline Underground hip hop on live365.com, an editors pick, on the air since 2001.
