This is the re-issue of Boots Riley and Pam The Funkstress' critically acclaimed 2001 release. It's the Oakland, CA duo's crowning achievement, the ultimate representation of Boot's ability to be blatantly political in an uncompromising fashion while intertwining healthy doses of humor and humanity. They take well thought out radical politics and infuse them with the energy of artfully inspired hip-hop. Soulful funky beats and cleverly crafted rhymes make the politics easily accessible to a wider audience. "...The Coup knows the secret to effective politicization: before you can change people's minds, you have to engage them"--Pitchfork Media.
