In my opinion, this is not just one of the deepest songs in hip hop, but music in general. For it’s depressing story and lyrics. Although this song is based on a fake story (I saw an interview where Immortal Technique discussed it, some of is true, but not the ending as he took it to the extreme to get a better point across) I don’t think this song can just relate to drugs, awful things like sexual abuse and so on, but the greed of humankind and the danger it causes. It is one of the many things humans struggle with and we need to change that attitude.
Another few songs in a genre I rarely cry too or can’t even relate to, brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard the song.
Immortal Technique is in my top five of favorite undergound hip hop artists for his aggressive, conscience, talented lyrics and his work outside of music. He is really inspiring I think.
If any of my followers are interested or even enjoy some hip hop, especially conscience hip hop. If you appreciate free music. Imo this is one of Immortal Technique’s best albums in his discography he released it for free to his fans. I was taken back as it is a very well done album, production and lyrically. The time it was released I thought it was the artist’s best album at the time. I was taken back he was given it to his fans for free and didn’t ask for a dime. But Immortal Technique is more about revolution etc than music. It is one of the reasons I highly respect the dude. Here are a couple songs from the album, I will share the link to the whole album on youtube and in case you want to download it a safe downlable link to get it. (Again, he put it out for free these are not links from fans or people who hacked his album links etc. Lol)
The first song on the album and one of my favs. Get’s me pumped and wants to revolutionize 😛
Another powerful song on the album, however if you listen to the album this song may confuse you of Immortal Techniques view. I was confused the first time I hear the song, it took a few times around to figure it out. Tech raps from the 1% perspective in this song, not his own. Those who control us, control the world’s wealth etc.
My personal favorite collaboration on the album
I’m like the birth of baby Mohammed, the movement I started
Can spar with the hardest, the martyr regarded as Spartacus-hearted
It doesn’t matter whose missiles can shoot the farthest
When you’re a target in an Afghan Tutoberg Forest
Close quarters combat over corrupted elections
Bilderberg is like cancer, it grows an infection
Nepotism is the gold and the conductor’s connection
And ignorance is the prison that the people are kept in
The military ain’t there for the people’s protection
They’re just there to protect an investment
That’s why people get arrested, electrocuted, molested
Connected streets are infested with those tired of protestin’
Traumatized children grow to guerilla garrisons
9/11 generations pale in comparison
And you will learn a lesson repeated through history
That no matter what you think, occupation is not victory
Youtube Link to the full album:
If you want the album through the safest link as it is through his stuff. (You have to create an account however, but it’s free. You just choose rather you want Mp3 or cd, and add it to your cart. It is free and you will not be charged for the account or the album)
I am sure you can google other links and get it through somewhere else, I just suggest being careful if that is how you go about downloading music.
I am off to binge listen to Immortal Technique and then do some chores. I am working on another post that will hopefully be posted sooner than later. I will give you a little hint of what it will be about: Stimming
Hope everyone is having a great week! Bye for now. 🙂
