Dead Prez

Dead Prez is a pair of largely-underground alternative rappers, Sticman[?] and M-1[?]. They have become known largely for a hard-hitting style and politically-aware lyrics, focusing on racism, governmental hypocrisy and corporate control over media, especially in hip hop. Their debut album was Let's Get Free (2000, see 2000 in music), which had a minor hit with "It's Bigger than Hip Hop" the year before. The album was critically well-received, and included intense political diatribes, as well as "Animal in Man", a retelling of George Orwell's Animal Farm.
