Immortal Technique makes rap music the only way he knows how: brutal, honest, intelligent, and always eye-opening. If any musician is being targeted for assassination by the CIA, it his him. Political at times, but always the humanitarian, his new free album is no different. The first day it was out over 200,000 people downloaded it, and crashed his label’s website. Born in Peru, raised in Harlem, revered worldwide, Technique is respected in the rap community not just for his skills, but for his honesty and realness. Recently working with a humanitarian group he donated his own money and helped raise over $60,000 to build an orphanage in Afghanistan, which he recently went and visited.
Now he is the topic of a documentary chronicling his touring, his humanitarian work and his outlook on music and social issues. Check the trailer http://youtu.be/LiSE-H-p3oQ
