Dead Prez- Hip Hop

I remember I was banging this album on my way to the Bronx from Columbus, OH. We where 9 deep in two cars and all we played the entire way there was Big L and Dead Prez. Stic Man and M1 come with politically conscious lyrics that force you to play your position in the struggle. Dead Prez lyrics seem to heavily focus on revolution, institutional racism, critical pedagogy, police, capitalism, education, prison systems, religion, activism against governmental repression, and corporate control over the media. We need more like em.
