Stic from Dead Prez
It’s still Bigger than Hip Hop! Legendary rap outfit Dead Prez are famous for social movements and being a voice of the people, some of their many inspiring songs include ‘Be Healthy’ a song that alluded to cutting out meat and dairy from the diet. Stic from Dead Prez talks us through his journey, favourite artists and how his diet was received all those years ago.
So with that inspiration and my leg back in motion I was inspired to write be Healthy to share my gratitude for the lifestyle change. I thought I could convey it in a way that be relatable to the hood
What inspired you to get into music/rapping?
My older brother Troy introduced me to my first rap vinyl. He was the coolest to me and whatever he was into I wanted to emulate him and his style. He told me that we would form a group, he would be the djay and I the rapper-I took that and ran with it and have been practicing the craft of emceeing since like 5th grade.
