"The Guillotine" by The Coup from the new album 'Sorry To Bother You,' out 10/16!

Produced and Directed by Beau Patrick Coulon

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 revolutionarily-charged lyrics rank The Coup as a renowned political hip hop band aligned to radical music groups such as The Clash, Dead Prez and Rage Against the Machine.

The Coup's music is driven by assertive and danceable bass-driven backbeats overlaid by critical, hopeful, and witty lyrics, often with a bent towards the literary. The Coup's songs critique, observe, and lampoon capitalism, American politics, patriarchal exploitation, police brutality, marijuana addiction, romance, working at fast food places, and disparities among race and class.

Sorry to Bother You is the sixth album by political hip hop group The Coup, which was released on October 30, 2012, on ANTI-. It's the group's first album where no samples are being used and all tracks are made by live instrumentation. It debuted at #194 on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling about 2000 copies in the first week. At Metacritic it received an average score of 80, which indicates "generally favorable acclaim", based on 15 reviews.[9] PopMatters named it the year's fifth best hip hop album in its year-end list and commented that it "just might stump The Powers That Be, to the point that even the “one-percent” will want to dance to it". Four tracks off the album have been released as official videos including first single The Magic Clap, Land Of 7 Billion Dances, The Guillotine and Your Parents' Cocaine
