The Coup
The Coup is a political hip hop group based in Oakland, California. It formed as a three-member group in 1992 with rappers (Raymond) Boots Riley and E-Roc along with DJ Pam the Funkstress. E-Roc left on amicable terms after the group's second album, but appears on the track "Breathing Apparatus" on The Coup's third album, Steal This Album. The group is now a duo. The Coup, part of the sub-genre of political hip hop, is politically radical and Marxist in their music, and align themselves with other radical hip-hop groups like dead prez.

    Album Review: Oh Captain, My Captain

    Oh Captain My Captain - Recklessly She Split The Sea. Releases November 10th, 2008Annie Marie, the second track, first song on Oh Captain My Captain's, "Recklessly She Split The Sea", interrupts a cheesy intro, that couldn't be any worse if they had called it "Opening Credits"; oh wait, they did.. Annie Marie is a sad pathetic song about a wimp.. It describes a girl that cheats on a boy and of course he's devastated.

    To ROSE: What you wish is not what we should do. I spoke my mind as I could not have done it if I was living in Germany during the Third Reich. Peace to all.

    show-bot! *I am* the shoutbox (fthe) police and i wish everyone in the world would stop making comparisons to Nazis. 'Fascist' sure but Nazi comparisons are tangential and oft inappropriate + out of line. Much so that it lessens the horror of the real actions of the Nazis. ¤ That aside, 'Rose' is a spam bot so i left the commentary as we aren't strong armed fascists and fuck spam-bots. ¤ Everybody remember though: this is a SAFE SPACE!
