Just weeks before dropping his solo effort, "Confidential," on March 21, 2006, M-1's group dead prez (with partner sticman) can be seen in comedian Dave Chapelle's feature documentary, "Dave Chapelle's Block Party." Contrary to rumors, dead prez is in fact still together, and plan on releasing a new album in 2006. In "Dave Chapelle's Block Party," the group performs "Hip Hop" and "Turn Off the Radio," two of their most popular hits. Dead prez has generated a fervent underground following and respect within the hip hop community.
