Dead Prez - Stimulus Plan

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Dead Prez
Producer:
Green Lantern
Album:
Pulse Of The People (Turn Off The Radio Vol. 3)

Though Dead Prez haven’t released a new studio album since ‘04’s Revolutionary But Gangsta (and have yet to appear on our front page as a duo), this new cut should reassure fans that Stic.Man and M-1 still have their fingers planted firmly on the Pulse of the People, and, with the blend of forward-looking idealism and populist furor that’s characterized ‘09 thus far, the time couldn’t be more ripe for their return to the spotlight.  Opening with a few timely news clips, Stimulus Plan raises plenty of provocative questions—is the love of money the root of all evil, or the lack of it?  Does slavery live on in the continued exploitation of the working class?  Complete with an innovative Green Lantern instrumental, which samples both Pink Floyd and old-school rap group Divine Sounds, this record should have listeners (especially those with leftist tendencies) waiting with bated breath for the forthcoming Pulse Of The People (Turn Off The Radio Vol. 3) .
