Dead Prez

Discovered by Brand Nubian—one of the first East Coast acts to bring conscientious hip-hop to the mainstream—the underground group Dead Prez, consisting of stic.man and M-1, blew up after Let’s Get Free dropped in 2000. Its top track, “It’s Bigger Than Hip-hop,” even served as Dave Chappelle’s intro track for Chappelle’s Show and several comedy recordings. Let’s Get Free and a slew of mixtapes took what Public Enemy started with their politically charged, angry hip-hop and ventured out to extremes—the lyrics delve into pan-Africanism, revolution, institutional racism and socialism. Local support by Burnell Washburn, Dopethought, Dumb Luck and DJ Juggy.
