Single review: DEAD PREZ – 'DEAD MAN'S SHOES'‏ [For MTV UK]

Here a recent single review I wrote for MTV Wrap Up for Dead Prez' new single 'Dead Man's Shoes', along with the audio at the bottom.

Dead Prez look like they've still got the fire in their belly to cook up this new afro-centric, reggae-inspired joint, which leaked recently...

Educating the more discerning and knowledge-hungry fans of hip-hop, M-1 and Stic Man have released a number of great mixtapes and albums, predominantly based around Black Panther socialism, which is combined with a healthy supply of boom bap, 'true-school' hip-hop…
But like many of the greats, Dead Prez are yet to out-do their classic debut album, 'Let's Get Free'. 'Dead Man's Shoes', as much of an edutaining and 'roots' hip-hop record this is, unfortunately seems to echo Nas and Damian Marley's collaborative project, 'Distant Relatives'.

This is definitely worth the listen, though. Let's hope that some of the more influential heads in the scene re-introduce these two back into hip-hop's main stage.
