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.
Who shot biggie smalls?! If we dont get dem they gon' get us all!
Not really into this genre of music but I LOVE these guys, it's bigger than a HIP- HOP- HIP - HOP! (; brutal stuff!
Influential but underated
Let's Get Free is Dead Prez's finest album. The production is superb and the messages that M1 and Sticman communicate are deep and meaningful. I actually find myself learning about some of what they are rapping about which no album has ever made me do. I only wish there other albums were as good as this one.
why haven't more people heard this?
One of the finest. Some serious serious tracks on this album.
Some of the subject matter is harsh and I hope to think the world has moved on since. But some days it's what you need to hear.
