Political hip-hop group The Coup are just about to release the follow-up to their successful 2006 album ‘Pick A Better Weapon’. We’re pleased to exclusively stream the album here for a week. The Californian group have been making funky, punk-inspired hip-hop since the 90s, fronted by Boots Riley. Das Racist and Killer Mike among others feature on this album and – true to form – it sounds quite different to their previous records. Is the first track a 21st century version of Bowie’s ‘Dance, Magic, Dance’? I hope so.
