''RBG: Revolutionary but Gangsta'' is a hip-hop album released by Dead Prez in 2004.

RBG represents the traditional African colors of the UNIA, red, black, and green, which are featured on the album cover.

On ''RBG: Revolutionary but Gangsta'', Dead Prez talks about ending poverty and depression, and of "pimping the system" as a means to this end and to the cause of liberation. On "Hell Yeah," Dead Prez declare "Fuck welfare / we say reparations".

Inside the album liner notes, RBG is variously described as standing for; "revolutionary but gangsta", "real big guns", "real black girls", "ready to bust gats", "reaching bigger goals", "read 'bout Garvey", "rappers be gassed", "red black green", "rider's basic guide", and "rollin big ganja".

The song "Radio Freq" first appeared on ''Turn Off the Radio: The Mixtape Vol. 1'' as "Turn Off the Radio" and is considered an homage to Ice Cube's song "Turn Off The Radio".

In 2003, the song, "Hell Yeah" was featured on the ''2 Fast 2 Furious'' soundtrack.
