Dead Prez: Barack Obama No Better than George W Bush

Dead Prez rapper M1 says Barack Obama and George Bush are ‘two sides of one coin’ and believes the current president’s policies alienate large sections of the US population.

The controversial hip-hop star visited Egypt a day before the country’s revolution began and believes the US could face similar uprisings in the near future.

He said: ‘Obama, representing capitalism, being just a continuation of George Bush is an understatement. ‘The way we are being governed now treats a good sector of our people less than human.

‘And the enemy, during this particular time that we are in, is the lack of information and political education.’
