Politically charged rappers Dead Prez follow up 2003's "mix tape" GET FREE OR DIE TRYIN' with another powerful statement, RBG: REVOLUTIONARY BUT GANGSTA. Musical revolutionaries in the tradition of Gil Scott-Heron and Public Enemy, Stic and M1 are as concerned with educating as they are entertaining. This time around, the duo's main goal is to widen the appeal of their politically conscious vision by embracing a more mainstream sound. "Hell Yeah (Pimp the System)" recalls the frenzied tracks of Atlanta's Organized Noize, while "I Have a Dream, Too" captures the laid-back groove of Dr. Dre. But instead of merely dropping clever rhymes and tall tales, Stic and M1 use their time in the spotlight to discuss controversial, hard-hitting issues, such as police brutality (the aforementioned "I Have a Dream, Too"), employment ("W-4"), and racism ("Walk Like a Warrior"). In a climate that normally distracts listeners from the sobering realities of everyday life, this duo continues to provide a refreshing, albeit challenging, antidote.
