The rap group Public Enemy consisting of Chuck D and Flava Flav both have diplomas from Adelphi University in Long Island, New York. With a degree in graphic design. Chuck D (real name is Carlton Douglas Ridenhour) met fellow DJ Hank Shocklee at the student radio station WBAU. After Chuck spitt a few bars on Shocklee’s “Public Enemy No. 1,” the hip-hop unit was born and eventually signed by producer Rick Rubin of the upstart label at the time, Def Jam. The two mixed a collection of tracks together called the Super Spectrum Mix Show. Hosting his own show and putting his mixtapes on-air, Chuck D began hanging out with William Drayton, better known as Flava Flav, who became his comical counterpoint. Although both made their minimum wages as truck drivers while attending school, it was their musical connection on-campus that gave Public Enemy its start.
