With hard-hitting beats, politically aware rhymes, deft lyricism and strong song concepts, Dead Prez emerged in 2000 as one of rap’s most politically strident outfits. Consisting of Stic.man and M-1, Dead Prez’s music provided a voice for the voiceless, a sobering look at the global power structure that was crippling billions of people internationally and millions of Americans domestically.  Individually and collectively, Stic and M-1 have been involved in political and community activism, pushing for progressive education for all people, teaching the merits of fitness and eating healthily and illustrating changes needed in American society and throughout the world.  The duo’s first two studio albums, 2000s Lets Get Free and 2004s RBG: Revolutionary But Gangsta, were accompanied by four acclaimed Turn Off The Radio Mixtapes and solo albums.  In 2012, Dead Prez released their latest album, Information Age.
