An extended edition of the 1998 Coup album Steal This Album, Steal This Double Album is not quite like anything else from the landscape of late-'90s hip-hop. These 17 songs show group leader Boots Riley pushing his beats toward the sound of a live band—all the better to emphasize his vision of a political movement powered by human strength. His lyrics remain focused on a critique of the American capitalist system, but his concepts have become cleverer and more audacious. “Me and Jesus the Pimp in a ’79 Granada Last Night” takes down capitalism, Christianity, and misogyny under the guise of a blaxploitation narrative.
