1. SEE, HEAR: The Coup - "Fat Cats, Bigga Fish" (1994).


    Boots Riley and them been on some #OccupyWallStreet ish, son. The spirit of Oakland's deep history of political action by way of the Black Panther party and other community activism found itself resonating in the music of local natives The Coup in the early '90s. Boots, E-Roc and DJ Pam's strong, positive messages were a breath of fresh air amidst the pimpin' and murderin' on wax of the time and that vibe they brought was clearly seen in the video for the single, "Fat Cats, Bigga Fish." Shot in gritty B&W in a cinema verite style, this was one clip that was fully loaded—with freshness. Come wit' it!

      'Me and Jesus the Pimp In a 79' Grenada Last Night' ; beautifully tragic story. Masterful storytelling (Boots M.O.) Smartdumbcats don't/can't listen to The Coup; because hardcore truth will force weak mothafuckas to react...and 99% of 1 dimensional emcees can't handle that!
