DEAD PREZ TO PLAY CAPITOL

dead prez

Hip-hop duo dead prez will perform at Perth’s own Capitol on December 12 as part of their national Australian tour, which includes a performance at Victoria’s Meredith Music Festival.

dead prez’s signature combination of artistry and activism has earned them legendary status. Inspired by the Black Panther and Uhuru movements, dead prez match hard-hitting activism with even harder-hitting beats, focusing on social injustices, the prison system and indigenous rights. 

With their breakout debut record, 2000’s Let’s Get Free, dead prez (aka Brooklyn rappers Stic.Man and M-1) led the charge in a renaissance of politically-conscious rap.

The album featured production from a young Kanye West, who famously said, “It wasn’t until I hung out with dead prez that I understood how to make raps with a message sound cool…”. 

Music tastemaker Pitchfork called Let’s Get Free “an iconoclastic rap record built around the politics of liberation”, awarding it an 8.2/10 – a high watermark on their infamously challenging album review scale.

dead prez’s track Hip Hop also featured as the walk-on music for African American comedian Dave Chappelle’s cult program, Chappelle’s Show. 

Over the years, dead prez have built a fan base around their flamboyant live performances; known to ignite dollar bills and toss apples into the audience (a nod to their emphasis on living a healthy lifestyle). 

Don’t miss what will be an electrifying live performance and rallying call-to-action from two of hip-hop’s most outspoken figures. 

Tickets on sale now via Oztix.
