The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy


An outgrowth, both musically and ideologically, from the San Francisco-based avant-garde commercial jazz collective the Beatnigs, the Throw away Heroes of Hiphoprisy shaped in 1990. Made up of previous Beatnigs Michael Franti and Rono Tse, the duo quickly set up themselves among rap’s most important proponents of multiculturalism and liberalism; pointedly attacking hip-hop tenets like homophobia, misogyny, and racism, Franti’s narratives attended to issues which range from “Tv: The Medication of the country” to “Socio-Genetic Knowledge” (about his youth elevated by white parents) with clearness and depth. Starting slots for everybody from Public Foe and Arrested Advancement to Nirvana and U2 attested towards the nerve strike with the Heroes’ 1992 debut, Hypocrisy Is the foremost Luxury, even though some members from the rap community dismissed the duo as an effort to quell white America’s apprehensions on the violent world-view depicted within the grooves of gangsta rap information. Consequently, the Throw-away Heroes of Hiphoprisy hardly ever seduced the African-American viewers their music positively wanted, and after becoming a member of beat tale William S. Burroughs on his 1993 launch Extra Ass Annie along with other Stories, the duo disbanded; while Tse later on caused the Bay Region rap device Mystik Journeymen, Franti shaped Spearhead, a far more roots-oriented concern.
