In 1991, Boots Riley founded the political hip hop group, The Coup, and with other Hip-Hop artists created the Mau Mau Rhythm Collective which put on “Hip-Hop Edutainment Concerts”. Boots has appeared on Fox News’s Hannity and Colmes, PBS’s Democracy Now!, and ABC’s Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.
