Let‘s face it: overtly political music is usually wack, and don‘t even talk to me about Cornel West. But now, Head-Roc is here to inherit the political rap mantle from Public Enemy, an appropriate position for this D.C. native. With an eye towards flow and hot, swinging beats, Head-Roc tackles issues as diverse as the legacy of slavery, modern day Black empowerment and imperialism from Christopher Columbus to George Bush without preaching or putting heads to bed. Noam Chomsky himself would dig Roc‘s whispered Ying-Yangian foray into the sticky politics of the Middle East on "Free Palestine"-somebody email him an mp3!
