Product Description

Amazon.com

How did serious efforts to combat racism go outta' style in Hip-Hop Land? Who knows. But the battle ain't over. Dead Prez would rather defend free speech and poor communities than waste their Warholian 15 minutes obsessing over booze, blunts, and hos. Dead Prez's lacerating lyrical stance is unapologetically socialist and pro-black, recalling X-Clan and Paris. This album is a recorded challenge to hardrocks to renew their sense of activism---Insane Clown Posse diehards need not apply. Neo-Black Panthers stic.man and M-1 attack a full spectrum of politically charged issues. Check the antiflossing manifesto "Hip Hop" ("Would you rather have a Lexus or justice?") which works well over brooding bass lines and bounce beats. On "Police State" the duo offer their take on police brutality while the Pan-Africanist "African" serves as a fitting ode to the Motherland. Interestingly, their revolutionary tactics are not just political, but rather serve as a rallying point for the mind, body, and soul. For the pro-vegetarianism of "Be Healthy" the duo somehow coax the usually juvenile Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) to wax about the evils of eating processed foods. Revolutionary indeed. And searing critiques of the powerful and corrupt continue on "They Schools," where the education system takes a lyrical beatdown over some synthesized string arrangements. Let's Get Free is geared toward those who would rather rage against the machine than be eaten by it. --Dalton Higgins

5.0 out of 5 stars That's what we need March 19, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
America and hiphop are not that far along that Public Enemy and voices of the african-american struggle no longer have a place. Dead Prez uses this album to push political messages that are being shunned in mainstream society and in hiphop itself. As the lyrics show, heads are"...sick of the same ol' thang, it's bigger than bling-bling." I'm sure people that do not identify with the black experience in america might find this album a little unsettling, too bad. Hip hop *is* universal and a form of entertainment, but it also is a powerful political medium that can serve a greater purpose. I believe Dead Prez has succeeded providing a great hiphop album comprised of banging beats, great flow, and a useful and pertinent message.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHOA! people have missed the POINT! April 17, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I have the album and it is great. Excellent production, lyrics with depth (at LONG LAST) and mainstream/underground appeal. Dead Prez has plenty to say...and hold similar views of people before them: Black Panther Party, Karl Marx, Mao Tse-Tung, W.E.B. DuBois, Lenin etc. BUY THIS ALBUM...forget ALL the negative reviews and use YOUR HEAD for a change!
Funny how blinded people are to the way America is REALLY run. No where within this album does Dead Prez blame WHITE people for the oppression of blacks, they are blaming the SYSTEM. The oppressive system of CAPITALISM. Funny how this is proven within the back album cover. American capitalism is AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN controlled by white people, explaining Dead Prez's use of the word "cracker" throughout the album, and the misguided impression that Dead Prez is blatantly racist to all whites.
White imperialism is a by product of the oppressive capitalistic system and CAPITALISM is the DIRECT relation to the enslavement of Africans and the constant oppression throughout the world of ALL African people.
In America, African descendants are placed at the bottom of the system and are SUPER-exploited while working whites are exploited. The white capitalists are the only one who TRULY benefit from the American system. Like DuBois, they look at their oppressive condition within an Afro-centric view, which is the Black nationalism that is prominent throughout the album.
In no way does Dead Prez restrict themselves to Afro-centric thought though...this is proven when they state how they read teachings of Mao Tse-Tung and study about other worker's revolutions.
Dead Prez is about REVOLUTION not "bitching" or "pointing the finger".

5.0 out of 5 stars " Dead Prez is a Living Press" October 2, 2000
By Josef
Format:Audio CD
Amidst the flashy dashy, bling bling materialist, candy coated I wanna be a thug hip hop today, Dead Prez's call to action couldn't of come sooner. The hard hitting, crowd moving, millitary formation-like single "hip-hop" is a subtle lyrical tirade of mainstreamm hip-hop culture. Laced with a fiery political message, bangin base line, and revolutionary theme the single by itself is almost enough to kill opponents softly. I initially intended to order "Lets get Free" from Amazon but I couldn't wait. I went to my local record store only to find that the cover had been censored for its depiction of an armed African village. I couldn't wait to get deeper into the bulk of the album to see if it measured up to the first single and to my surprise there are even better tracks. Tracks like "Police state","Behind Enemy Lines", and "Assassination" are feeled with enough political content that at the right time, they could spark a revolution. "Freedom", another revoltuionary track is in my opinion a very vissionary track which outlines Dead Prez's main objective. And as a bonus, the hidden track "Propaganda", which takes a drastic turn away from minority oriented issues to a broader perspective, makes a convincing argument for government conspiracies from U.F.O.'s to Ron Brown and shows that Dead Prez is very capable of reaching a larger audience. Dead Prez invigorates many issues that have long been perceived as dead. They give them life. And just like a deceased loved one has risen from the grave, you start to believe again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss the true point March 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Creativity, coherence, talent, emotions. This album has it all. One of the best put together albums of any music genre I have heard in a long time. Many are offended by the message that Dead Prez puts out, in their condemnation of white supremacy, but they strike their message not out of hatred for a race of people, but out a hatred for injustice. They pick up where Tupac left off in speaking for the young and disenfranchised youth of color in this country through their lyrics. In a hip-hop world filled with absolute nonsense, filled with blatant ignorance and mindlessness, Dead Prez counter punches with an album full of explicit revolutionary blows that leave even the most open minded listener shocked. I hear critisisms that say that Dead Prez are contradicting themselves by signing to a white-owned label, Loud Records. What this and other critisisms fails to understand is that Dead Prez are using hip-hop as propaganda to spread their message. Sure, Loud records may be getting money, but Dead Prez dosen't seek money. Their payment is in spreading their views. They use Loud Records the same way Loud Records uses Dead Prez, and they use Loud to spread their revolutionary message across the globe. Its a powerful thing to see(as I have already seen)kids of all races and ages blasting Dead Prez's music in their stereos instead of Master P and Cash Money. Very good strategy, one that has nothing to do with music, and can be applied to many areas of fighting injustice. Power to the people.
