Immortal Technique is recognized as an MC whose music is informational and at times, extreme. The Harlem lyricist emerged during the rise of independent Hip-Hop in the early 2000s, and his politically-charged brand of Hip-Hop quickly struck a chord with fans worldwide. Further, he is widely acknowledged for his activism and charitable work in a number of second and third world countries.
AllHipHop‘s Chuck Creekmur recently conducted a nearly hour-long video interview with the Viper Records revolutionary, covering a wide variety of topics. A good portion of the chat offers a history lesson, as Tech shares information on why Eisenhower Republicans are quite different than today’s Conservatives, his beliefs that he’s been under surveillance, and why Brooklyn’s Poison Pen was a pioneer for pay-per-view Battle Rap culture.
