Album Review

Signed to a label (Loud) notorious for its astute thug philosophers (Wu-Tang, Mobb Deep, and Big Pun), Dead Prez's empowering debut, Lets Get Free, seems like a misplaced oddity. Yet the disputatious duo of SticMan and M1 would be an oddity on any label, as they shoulder the burden of revitalizing a genre (problack) which has been seemingly erased from the collective consciousness. Taking social activism to new heights, Dead Prez are the most revolutionary hip-hop group to emerge since Public Enemy lost their audience and N.W.A disbanded. SticMan and M1 chronicle a broad range of politically pressing issues which pertain to the black community — from the inadequacies of inner-city public schooling ("They Schools") to socially repressive bureaucracies ("Police State"). But Dead Prez are more then just agenda and rhetoric; the group's topical diversity is equally inspiring, seamlessly shifting from the mind-pillaging "Psychology" into the conversational foreplay of "Mind Sex." Yet it is "Animal in Man" that best illustrates just how innovative this group can be.

Top 10 all time

This album is one of the top 10 hip hop albums of all time. Lyrically, production wise, not to mention the message in the music. Put this alongside, illmatic, the infamous, the chronic, only built 4 Cuban LINX, and any other classics. If you don't love this record, you don't get it, buy a Soundgarden record and give up on hip hop. DP FOREVER.
