Dead Prez proved they were legitimate torchbearers of Public Enemy’s brand of political rap with 2000’s explosive pro-black manifesto Let’s Get Free. But with ludicrous lyrics like ”My J.O.B. is just like a plantation” (from the antiwork anthem ”W-4”), their latest ideological assault is a revolutionary belly flop. Ironic highlight: the Bambaataa-ish remix of ”Hell Yeah (Pimp the System),” on which Jay-Z flaunts unapologetic gangsta verve.
