Win Tickets to Dead Prez!

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Wed, Jul 8, 2009 at 7:10 PM


The last time Dead Prez brought their fuck-a-cop-hiphop to the Pacific Northwest, this happened. While I can't promise their Portland show—this Friday at the Roseland Theater—will feature an overturned police cruiser, or Evergreen students that try to "grab guns from deputy holsters" (!), you know that this will be a memorable evening.

The Brooklyn duo of M1 and have battled "the man," plus countless inept record labels, in order to release an impressive catalog of militant hiphop that is committed to self-discipline, community building, staying positive, and kicking ass like a goddamn warrior (when called for). When they are on—which they definitely are on their new DJ Green Lantern mixtape, Pulse Of The People—few modern musical acts, hiphop or otherwise, are as important as Dead Prez. Don't miss this.

To win this pair of tickets just comment below on why you think you deserve to attend this show. The best response by tomorrow (Thursday) at 6pm wins their way into the show. Good luck, RBG gangster.
