Boom! We’re back with another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat from your people-powered station, CKUT in Montreal!

This week on the show, we are very happy to bring you an interview with M-1 of the legendary hip hop group Dead Prez. This is essentially Take 2 of our conversation, because as some of you may know, we were supposed to interview M-1 in Montreal back in January, when he was scheduled to perform for the Fro Foundation’s Black History Month series. But then, the racist colonial border guards refused his entry into Canada. And that was that. Although, M-1 still addressed the crowd in Montreal via skype, and we aired that address on Podcast #001 of The Rebel Beat.

Anyways, so we finally got a chance to catch up with M-1 on the phone from his home a little while back, and we bring you his reflections on his experience at the KKKanadian border, building revolutionary culture at a time of heightened police terrorism against Black communities in the U$A, and even his critiques of media coverage of the Charlie Hebdo attack.

Plus we hear some new music this episode from Lee Reed, East End Radicals, The Brat Attack, and more!

Until next week, stay rebel!
