Yay.

I appreciate Immortal Technique because I think he represents a great deal of what hip-hop was founded on, and that is a means of expression for the disenfranchised; kind of like Chuck D said it's the "black CNN".  They need more hip-hop artists like Immortal Technique, but most of them remain independant because most the major hip-hop labels are not owned (or their parent companies are not owned) by black people, but often they are owned by wealthy Jews such as Clive Davis, Lyor Cohen, Jimmy Iovine, the list goes on forever.  This is nothing against Jews in general, but if hip-hop started partly as a mechanism for oppressed groups to express themselves and inspire self-esteem and community activism; you don't want somebody else on top of you defining who you are.  For example, since Robert Johnson sold out BET to Viacom (also owned by Jews) they got rid of Tavis Smiley and their news program BET Tonight and they added Uncut, basically they've turned it into a soft black porn network.

Anyway, I don't always agree with Immortal Technique's point of view, because at times (although not often) he also speaks against Muslims.  Still, he has a right to express himself, and hip-hop is one of the greatest vehicles for self-expression ever created.   

:raisetheroof: i agree with you

That's a nay for me.

I love political rap... but Immortal Technique simply won't do it for me. His style and voice are so boring.

Completely...fucking...irrelevent.

And BTW, when hip-hop started it was all about having fun, not politics.  That's a typical backpacker myth.

i never said that...and if you read a few posts up i did say tech is one of my favorite rappers...so gimme a break

what i was saying is that whoever said "yea technique is bringing it back to the roots of hip hop" or whatever was said was innacurate

Immortal Technique IS HIP-HOP. Just like KRS One before him, we got the new Melle Mel, the new Chuck D, the new KRS One, the new Paris, the new 2Pac, the new Nas, right here, right now. It's fitting, because his Latino, and Latinos are now the biggest minority, the new civil rights is immigration rights, and Technique is an immigrant. Immortal Technique is the future of Hip-Hop, and fuck off if you disagree. My man is out there with Hip-Hop LEGENDS, like Chuck D, Nas and Paris, challenging the president, calling him out, and even if Bush doesn't listen, there are Hip-Hop artist out there that were making music back when artist were too afraid to put their sales on the line. Immortal Technique is the future of Hip-Hop, get use to it.

LMFAO!

Techniques tha shit but your cynicism is stating the obvious. Like any artist its unhealthy and moronic to folllow them religiously like they're the fucken second coming or sumthing.


I just want people to confirm that he's dope due to the content and issues he prys into with murderous lyricism.


YAY muthafokaz.
