The Coup is an American hip hop band from Oakland, California. Their music is an amalgamation of influences, including funk, punk, hip hop, and soul. Frontman Boots Riley's ged lyrics rank The Coup as a renowned political hip hop band aligned to radical music groups such as Crass, Dead Prez and Rage Against the Machine.

The Coup ‎– Party Music. Label: 75 Ark ‎– 75050. Format: CD, Album, Promo. This album is even more relevant today than it was 16 years ago when it debuted, in my sophomore year of high school.

The original cover art for Party Music, planned long before the events of September 11th, and originally intended to go to press on that fateful day, featured an image of the Twin Towers exploding, with the two rappers posturing in front of them- one holding conductor's batons, the other holding a detonator. The image, says the duo, was intended as a metaphor for the effect music can have on a corrupt system. Still, no doubt, the Coup will go down in history as a strange footnote to a tragic day, the unfortunate timing of the album cover remembered long after the music. And that's too bad, because Boots Riley and Pam the Funkstress deserve to be remembered for their music. You see, the Coup knows the secret to effective politicization: before you can change people's minds, you have to engage them.

Summary: Perhaps best known for being the album that depicted the World Trade Center towers in flames on its cover (before the events of September 11 necessitated a last-minute change of artwork), 'Party Music' is the fourth full-length for the ultra-political rappers. Record Label: 75 Ark. Genre(s): Rap.

Party Music is the fourth studio album by The Coup. The album was originally released by 75 Ark Records and has since been re-released by Epitaph Records after the group's signing in 2004. The album, which was originally scheduled to be released in early September 2001, is best known for its original cover art, which depicted Boots Riley and Pam the Funkstress appearing to detonate the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

With their community politics and anti-authoritarian attitude, The Coup can seem as anachronistic as Boots' signature Afro. But they only seem out of step because hip-hop has gotten out of touch with reality. In a climate where the music's apolitical stupor makes it incapable of dealing with national crisis, The Coup's Party Music is a stark and welcome exception. - Spin - Ranked Album of the Year, 2001 One of the best non-nihilist rap albums you'll hear all year.

In September of 2001, The Coup planned a symbolic attack against the World Trade Center. And the timing of could not have been more disturbingly in sync with the real-world event. What you see below was the planned cover art for The Coup’s Party Music album, designed in June 2001. The album cover depicts group member Boots Riley destroying the twin towers of the World Trade Center using a Covert-Labs digital chromatic tuner as a detonator while DJ Pam the Funktress waves two sticks held between her thumbs and forefingers, as if she is conducting the proceedings with two batons

EXCELLENT ALBUM! This album is even more relevant today than it was 16 years ago when it debuted, in my sophomore year of high school. Every man, woman, and child in America should listen to this album on full blast on repeat until we begin to seriously organize ourselves politically, militantly, and en-mass in order to halt the trump administration and reverse the current wholesale stampeding of our fundamental civil and human rights and the rapidly worsening trends of brutal oppression and exploitation. Perhaps Boots Riley and Dead Prez said it best on track 5: "It's time to get up RIGHT NOW, and turn this system UPSIDE DOWN." No doubt, there's no time like the present.

Agreed!! It's long been one of my favourite hip-hop albums of all time, for all the reasons you listed, not to mention just plain amazing songs front to back, and a sound that I feel is so unique to hip-hop! Truly speaks as much to the times now as it did then.
