dead prez “No Way As The Way” [Video]

Dead prez captured fans with their monumental single “Hip-Hop” that landed on their debut album, Let’s Get Free. They continue to drop knowledge with their stance against politics and racisms, as well as preached healthy eating habits. Now, M1 and bring us the official visual for “No Way As The Way” off their current album, Information Age.

The video, directed by Danny Hastings, shows dead prez involved in various religious practices. For more details about the track, here’s what had to say:

“The song ‘No Way As The Way,’ that title comes from my martial arts practices. Jeet Kune Do is one of the arts that I’ve had the chance to practice. Jeet Kune Do was created by Bruce Lee. It’s an approach to martial arts that says that having no way as the way, is the way. To make it simple: not being locked into any particular way as the only way to get something done, in terms of your fighting.

That spills over into the philosophy of life in terms of having no set way, no rigid position that you’re trying to hold, but being adaptable and fluid and flowing. Long story short, that martial arts practice has inspired my thinking a lot. When we decided to write a song on Information Age about spirituality and religion, it was so fitting.”
