It is hard to believe that this was an album that nearly never made it to the shelves. Having finished their second album "RBG", Dead Prez were dropped from their label Columbia. It seemed the album would never get the release it deserved.
RBG begins with the melancholic opening track "Don't Forget Where You Came From" (similar style to Wolves (opening track of Let's Get Free)) beautifully constructed then straight into the hard hitting "Warrior", pumping bass line together with the excellent backing vocals (Eryka Badu). The album continues on a journey prophesying their message whilst also attacking the system around them. "Turn off the Radio" (also in their 1st mixtape) is a direct assault on the chart culture and brainwashing radio stations "Platinum don't mean it gotta be hot, I aint got to love it, even if they play it allot". "Unbroken" is another masterful, emotionally charged song, with genius lyrics about the difficulty trying to survive in America, growing up in the ghetto. "The struggle must continue on, because that's what made me a man"
Perhaps the best track on the album – for me - however is "For the Hood" - amazing beat, a simple song but yet so effective and powerful pointing at the Police Force as the real enemy. This album is inspiring in every way, the best hip hop album of the year. This is real hip hop.

After first listening to Dead prez with there 'Lets Get Free' LP and being amazed with its mix of bitter sweet songs, RBG is a big disappointment. Having read about this album almost not being released, I can see why, because its content feels weak and diluted. It has 14 tracks but 3 of those tracks are Hell Yeah (2 remixes), and 6 of the remaining 12 are only 2 minutes long. The biggest difference in terms of content is there change from being activists previously, to being militants now. This change should have been expected as the exact same thing happened to Tupac, they start trying to live the myth which they previously ridiculed. A couple of good tracks remain such as Walk like a Warrior or W-4. Overall I would recommend you buy 'Lets Get Free' as it is a true classic, but if you are a hardcore fan then you'll buy RBG anyway

When I first saw the title of Dead Prez's follow up album I have to admit I felt a pang of fear. 'Gangsta' in the title? Surely they've not put together an album of dreary gangsta rap in order to ensure the record sells enough copies to keep the fat cats at Columbia records basking in their double whipped cream have they?!!...
...Thankfully, my fears were put to rest the minute the CD started playing. The album opens with Don't forget where you came from, a nice track, however things really kick into gear though with 'walk like a warrior', with it's lushious (it's the only word to describe it) backing vocals - it's almost haunting and M1, Stic and Krayzie bone all deliver magnificent verses. The album continues to build on this strength and M1 & Stic's deliveries are so precise, so well constructed, so well executed and so perfectly pitched that you just can't help buying what they're selling. A snippet of a verse from "Turn off the radio" says it all actually - "what's on the radio? propaganda, mind control, and turning it on is like putting on a blindfold"... I mean, with lyrics like that, what more do I need to say?!
So in conclusion, this is REAL hip hop music - the way it should be made and I can't recommend the album enough. Although admittedly it's not as good as their debut (Let's Get Free), it is better than 95% of everything else out there - forget your 50 cent's, J-Kwons, Jay-Z's, Fabulous and Ja-Rule, this is (as Common would say) "real hip hop music, from the soul y'all"... So go on, BUY it, DON'T DOWNLOAD it, pay these REAL artists their dues.

The one merit of this work is that it somehow manages to be both a musical failure and morally reprehensible. Its sound is deficient, but its message is disgraceful. I wonder, does their greed continue suppress their guilt?

On their second official studio album, it is immediately clear that 'dead prez' have regressed from impersonating revolutionaries to pretending to be gangsters. (Sorry, gangstas.) Essentially they've abandoned a cause for a coin. This is a monograph on how to sell your soul, and then unsuccessfully hide your shame.

They have retained the pretence of railing against the illusory System; The White Establishment, to them the source of all suffering and disparity in the world. This being the very structure they've rearranged their appearance in order to be absorbed by. "Pimp the System" they repeatedly cry as they prostitute themselves in pursuit of its acceptance. They speak too of freedom, and I wonder if they have heard the word before, in the country which worships it, seeing as they display their shackles as badges of honour.

'Let's get free' was a great album. Yes, the belief system was just as laughable and the racism as repellent, but it was not without power and poignancy. They were young, and if not authentically gifted, at least angry (all of which is secondary in their minds to being black): it was a welcome antidote to the insipience of misogyny and braggadocio which strangled an alleged culture. Sure, it was based on a false premise, but it was alive and errantly enraged.

This pales (worst of things!) in comparison.
