One of the most powerful Hip-Hop albums of all time...It's been 10 years now since this album dropped and unfortunatly we have had no one come in and fill Dead Prez shoes.

This album was 18 cuts of POWERFUL, POWERFUL music.  This is what I was talking about in the Myth/Waka thread...Shucking/Jiving drivel is fine as long as you have $%%@ like this to balance that out.  We don't have that anymore.  These kids get straight fed Soulja Boy, Gucci, Waka and all that other BS, without hearing music that makes one think critically.  Unfortunatly, we as a society don't read anymore so having music like this that cannot only be straight audio crack but highlight societal ills is more inportant than ever


Either way,

Wolves
They Schools
I'ma African
Hip-Hop
Police State
Behind Enemy Lines
Assassination
Mind Sex
We Want Freedom
Be Healthy
Discipline
Psychology
Happiness
Animal in Man
You'll Find a Way
It's Bigger than Hip-Hop
Propaganda
The Pistol

They picked up the torch from Public Enemy and others before them in a time of heavy commercialism.  I would love to see another group pick up the torch from where DP left it.

easily Top 25 all time.

My favorite album of all time. I remember listening to it while zoning out in my bed. After those 4 mins of silence and Propaganda comes on...WOW!
'They Schools' really opened my eyes about a lot of !$!! in this world
I can't even put this album in words.

My brother's friend put me onto this, whole album really started to change my musical taste completely.  I remember first time I went to a DP show, I was picturing the Hip-Hop video shook as hell...Get there and it's a bunch of whities basically

that album was like the blue pill in matrix (this and illmatic for me)... after listening to it youll never look at hiphop the same way again... it raised the bar and eveything that you hear after this seems mediocre...

changed my playlist and started bumpin the album right now...
