Dead Prez

I attended a Dead Prez show at the Echoplex last week in Los Angeles, California and I was so moved to see that Dead Prez still carries the banner of nonstop Hip Hop consciousness as they continue to progress in ways that marvel me. When Stic Man announced to the crowd that Dead Prez has started their own label RBG Fit Records and that the musical content would be street but family friendly, I was a little irritated that it took them this long to bring RBG Fit label forth. Where was this kind of Dead Prez music when my kids were too young for some of the non-child-friendly tracks on their previous albums? I would have loved to play unedited DP tracks for my toddlers many moons ago… the younger the better. However, what a joy for new parents who are Dead Prez fans. They will be able to bump new Dead Prez tracks for babies in car seats and still in wombs.

RBG Fit Records will also feature music that promotes fitness, long distance running, health, meditation, vegan living and authentic lyricism! WTF!? Where has this label been all my life?!?!?!? I want everything RBG Fitness right NOW! I was thoroughly impressed when Stic Man announced that he recently became a certified long distance running trainer. He has also authored a nutritional book titled Eat Plants Lift Iron. M1 blessed the crowd with a few tracks from his upcoming reggae project.

 

 

 

 

Dead Prez

I moved to the music not caring who around me got bumped over and over again. No worries, everyone around me did a great job of bumping me over and over again as well, especially when It’s Bigger Than Hip Hop grasped everyone into a trance! Hearing brothers on stage promoting vegan living, community, fitness, meditation, sobriety and revolution was almost more than I could stand all in one session! I was both elated and embarrassed when they performed ‘Intelligence is Sexy’ acapella style. Elated because the song praised female mental and intellectual power and embarrassed because I had never heard the song before. However, I started making up for my ignorance in regards to the existence of this song on the way home! I played this song on repeat and purchased it the next day. The song is what I need on my playlist. The song is what black and brown women need to reinforce to us and the world that we are beautiful in ways that don’t require us to put our bodies and raw sexuality on display to be seen, heard and valued. I love the song so much that I am compelled to provide the lyrics for you to enjoy below.

 

Intelligence is Sexy

Listen While You Read
I don’t want nobody who can’t get up on my level
Who can’t overstand my rebel soul
This is that guerrilla flow
This is that incredible
It ain’t who, it’s what you know
Intelligence from head to toe
Third eye open, ready to grow
Look inside her beautiful mind
Fly design, watch her shine
Fine wine, better with time
Do the math, what’s the science?
Analog girl in a digital world
Drop jewels, diamonds and pearls
Body language, numbers and verbs
Vocab, revenge of the nerds

Got no time for dumbin’ out
Her brilliance keeps coming out
My batteries ain’t running out
I’m street smart, her ass is round
So sweetheart, you better ask ’round
This is brain food and a closed mouth
Stay hungry, that’s ugly
But let me tell you one thing

[Hook] Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy
Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy
Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy
Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy

I love her healthy lifestyle and her sexy ways
A girl like that, comrade, I swear we can have mind sex for days
Frantz Fanon, Khalil Gibran she says, “it turns me on”
A lot of these beautiful girls be freaks, but weak in the mind, hers is strong
Good head on her shoulders, she got class, she got culture
Still, she down to earth, she down to ride, La Vida Loca
She act local, but she think global, multicultural girl
And only an A-alike way of life soldier can hope to approach the girl
Keep it real or you’re talking corny, tell the truth is what get her horny
I think she wants me, school me, jewel me, thieve me, wisdom, drop it on me
No time for no bullshi-, all she got is that realness
Good books to read, tea to sip, good vibes and friendship
Wise words, pretty lips, smarty pants and them curvy hips
Back side like, “bong bong”, self-aware like Don Juan
She ain’t ashamed of her nerd side, her body and her mind fine
And I can’t be no wise guy, but her head game is Einstein

[Hook] Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy
Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy
Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy
Intelligence is sexy
Sexy, sexy

She so wise, thick in the thighs, politicized, beautiful eyes
Ambitious and so delicious, motivated and oh, baby
Analytical, raise the temperature, critical thinker, hot for teacher
Fire burnin’, higher learnin’
Pimp the wisdom, wheels turnin’
G spot is not between the legs
The G spot is between the ears
You got the edge when you know the ledge, you can touch her soul with the right ideas
I can send a text, I can get you wet
With my intellect, and ain’t hit it yet
On the internet, so into it
You went across the globe, we still intimate

[Hook]

[Bridge] Drop it on me, turn me on
Turn me on, baby
Dr-, dro-, drop it on meh
Drop it on me, turn me on
Turn me on, baby
When you drop it on me

I don’t want nobody who can’t get up on my level
Who can’t overstand my rebel soul
This is that gorilla flow (x2)

[Bridge]
