[HIP-HOP] It’s been over 10 years since East Coast hip-hop group Dead Prez released its debut single, the appropriately titled “Hip-Hop,” and it’s still a classic. You can’t go to a rap show in Portland without hearing a DJ drop its rumbling bassline in their opening set or an MC freestyling over it. It’s helped M1 and Stic.man stay relevant, as their work has been hit-and-miss since. Their newest album, The Information Age, is a far cry from the political back talk and captivating boom-bap production of their beloved debut, Let’s Get Free. They’ve gone down a more spiritual route, which sounds good in theory, but has actually had a dumbing-down effect on their music. The fiery emotion and intelligent wordplay has been replaced by wind chimes and corny optimism. Let’s hope their live shows haven’t suffered the same fate.
