Physical fitness expert and one-half of dead prez Stic released his third solo album Workout II on Friday (February 28).
It’s the follow-up to his 2011 album that burgeoned his own lifestyle music subgenre called “Fit Hop” which focuses on his passion for healthy living and exercise.
“It’s all about putting in the work. Fit hop is for active listening,” Stic said about the second installment of his Fit Hop catalog. “You don’t just sit around and listen to an album like Workout II. Pop your earbuds in and use it as fuel to run, lift or in whatever way you choose to exercise your greatness.”

Had a blast putting this little ole album of mine together. There are so many people I will be thanking… so stay tuned…but first and foremost thank you to my family and friends and everyone who worked on and supported the process. Thank you for being there with me all the way! Stic Workout II OUT NOW ? @theindigenouslens
Mixed by Grammy award-winning engineer Brian Stanley, the 14-track album is a literal safe bet for an intense endorphin rush because it’s void of profanity and the N-word in its lyrics and uptempo beats.
The Lululemon Men’s Branding Campaign ambassador and long-distance running coach has guest features on his latest project including Styles P, Nahko Bear, Stic’s oldest son Twezo, and his RBG Fit Club recording artist Coach Nym. Additional features include Iron Lion, Dawit Sellassie, Eli Lakes and guitarist Martin Luther McCoy.
Plus, this year marks the 20th anniversary of dead prez’s debut album Let’s Get Free, which features their classic single “Hip Hop.”
