Dead Prez, hip-hop duo and social activists, will perform a free concert at 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21, in the University of Wyoming Union ballroom.
Individually known as M-1 and stic.man, Dead Prez continues on the path of other politically minded artists such as Public Enemy, 2pac and KRS-One.
Dead Prez has released two albums, two underground mix-tapes and two solo albums of street-level political hip-hop that is heavily aligned with challenging the status quo.
"Dead Prez uses music not to lie about having expensive cars or girlfriends with big bottoms, but to rail against the inequities in American society. They do so with an insight and honesty that is rare in any art form, let alone hip-hop," stated London's Daily Telegraph.
This concert, part of the UW Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Dialogue events, is sponsored by Friday Night Fever, Panhellenic Council and the Interfraternity Council. To see other events associated with MLK/DOD visit www.mlkdod.com .
