Of course it's still bigger than hiphop. Even if those who coined this now omnipresent call-to-arms haven't actually made a whole lotta, you know, hiphop in recent years. Dead Prez forever altered the political hiphop landscape with Let's Get Free, but that was 11 years ago (your president at the time: Bill Clinton) and their sporadic output since (2004's disappointing Revolutionary But Gangsta, and a handful of hit-or-miss mixtapes and solo releases) hasn't exactly set the world aflame for stic.man and M1. That's not to say that the sharply penned militant anthems of Dead Prez still can't raise a crowd of balled fists to the heavens—they surely can—but it might be nice to hear some fresh marching orders from these two distinguished emcees.
