Black August: Dead Prez, Maimouna Youssef, Martin Luther, Gods'illa, Farafina Kan

Hip-Hop/Rap
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Dead Prez broke through in 2000, thanks to the huge single "Hip-Hop" on their album "Let's Get Free." While the rap game has since devolved into an orgy of crass consumption since then, the duo has not abandoned its "revolutionary but gangsta" ethos. Their activism-focused output has stayed consistent. Catch up with Dead Prez at the Howard Theatre's Black August concert, also featuring soul man Martin Luther and the DMV's Gods'illa, Maimouna Youssef and Farafina Kan.
