Performer Notes
  • Dead Prez: M-1, Stic.man.
  • Producers: Dead Prez, Lord Jamar, Hedrush.
  • Engineers include: Christos Tsantilios, Blair Wells, Nastee.
  • Principally recorded at The Cutting Room, New York, New York.
  • At the start of the 21st century, Dead Prez was one of the few outfits to rise above the crowded, mediocrity-prone fray of misogynistic, money-driven, and thug-centered hip-hop. The Brooklyn duo of M-1 and Stic.Man set new standards for living on their debut, LET'S GET FREE. On "Be Healthy," Dead Prez provides a guideline to good health through rhymes that promote eating right and exercising. They even explore the rap ballad with "Mind Sex," in which the two invite women to do more than just behave as submissive, self-serving objects of sexual gratification. This meaningful, culturally conscious album, which is marked by backdrops of startling, occasionally somber beats, provokes deep thought. Indeed, with LET'S GET FREE, Dead Prez put themselves in a hip-hop class of their own.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/11/00, p.132) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A statement of sedition wrapped in a synergistic blend of urgent noise, angry rhythm and rhymes that display black skill in the hour of chaos..."

Entertainment Weekly (3/17/00, p.71) - "...edgy, political...Hip-hop for the underground 'and' undergrads, backed by the latest high-tech beats....a welcome break..." - Rating: B

CMJ (1/08/01, p.10) - Included in CMJ's "Best of the Year" for 2000.

CMJ (3/6/00, p.3) - "...an intensely charged collection of songs that aims to shake up its audience and educate it to the varying degrees of injustice inflicted by the American institution....a confrontational masterpiece..."

Vibe (3/00, p.216) - "...harks back to the heyday of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions' enlightenment over wall-busting beats....an awesome debut....with rugged production laced with electric guitar, pig grunts, and a 2-man narrative technique..."

The Source (3/00, p.246) - 3.5 mics out of 5 - "...[they] have the mentality of N.W.A. and the cultural and historical awareness of Public Enemy....conveys an almost Gothic feel [with]...the combination of smooth tracks and cleverly laid vocals....[a] conscious, Afrocentric gem."

NME (Magazine) (3/4/00, p.36) - 7 out of 10 - "...an unfashionably political album that screams for change and a return to Afro-centric values in rap....a refreshing change to the current glut of buddy-boy, backslapping rap records. 'Vive la revolution' - fight the power."
