After dates in Germany, Denmark and across the US, stic.man and M-1, together known as Dead Prez, will play at XOYO in London and also at The Social Club in Southampton. The duo formed in 1996 and has released a number of hip-hop hits, with many carrying across their political ideas.
Having been known for setting fire to money and throwing apples into audiences to get their messages across, they are one of todays most out there hip-hop artists. Although they haven’t released any music in a while, their back catalogue has seen chart hits and underground anthems, with their single It’s Bigger Than Hip Hop being their most famous, which was released in the year 2000.
Stic of Dead Prez has recently launched his new record label that has aptly been said to be bigger than hip hop… The imprint, called RBG Fit Records is dedicated to healthy living, which the duo are calling fit-hop. Offering a unique positive energy to the world of music, these shows will be the first in the UK since the launch of the label in January, meaning there will be a strong chance of hearing the label’s new material before anyone else.
