Dead Prez – Propaganda

Dead Prez – Propaganda

‘You can’t fool all the people all of the time
But if you fool the right ones, then the rest will fall behind
Tell me who’s got control of your mind, your world view?
Is it the news or the movie you’re taking your girl to?
Know what I’m saying cause uncle sam got a plan
If you examine what they telling us then you will understand
What they planting in the seeds of the next generation
Feeding our children miseducation’

Stic.man and M-1 taught me much more about society and history then many hours in class during high school. I’m sure plenty of you can relate. Consider this one, speaking on mass media and it’s influences and tricks. ‘The views that you see in the news is propaganda’, speaking truth. Educating, conscious lyrics on a DP collaboration with Lord Jamar production. For their debut, and still my favorite album Let’s Get Free from 2000. The vocals are sampled from Black Panther Party’s co-founder Huey Newton’s ‘let me now turn, to our program for the future’ speech.
