EDITORS’ NOTES

While modern rap as a whole may have lost touch its roots as protest music, there are still a handful of artists who go out of their way to educate and instigate the masses, railing against social injustices and teaching the next generation about the wicked ways of the government. M-1 and stic.man pull no punches on their first album as they cry revolution on nearly every track, sounding off against police, politicians, public schools, processed foods, and the like. They are unapologetically pro-Black, which, like X-Clan or Paris before them, has prompted some to cry "racist," though ironically their fanbase is significantly pale. On their own, some of the lyrics could be considered a bit heavy-handed, but together with the top-flight, extremely varied production (from Lord Jamar, Hedrush, and DP themselves), it comes off just right. Be sure to check the adrenaline-boosting anthem "Hip-Hop," the Afro-hippie natural love jam "Mind Sex," and the furiously ethnocentric, electro-laced "I'm A African."

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

No excuse not to have this album!

So much substance and ownership for what they got to say. True poets and speaking in what they believe in. I dont agree with everything but at least they have the sack not to care about offending anybody. The beats are bangin and you will be hooked on this whole album. Someone stole my cd and I was just happy to cop it on itunes. Dont sleep on this album the best album by deadprez to date. Whoever produced this album was doing it major! Peace
