I dont remember who or what tipped me, but I got two tracks of Immortal Technique, and they be good. Political, but also plain good. Harlem Streets and Peruvian Cocaine. Go get 'em.
There's a vid of Immortal Technique on YouTube of their The Fourth Branch
. You may like it or hate it, the vid sure would make Michael Moore jealous, its that unabashedly rhetorical - but either which way, you gotta give Immortal Technique props for being take-no-prisoners political and hard-hitting.
Do hide the window away then listen to it without seeing the vid a time too - has a different effect on me, gives me more mental space to appreciate the rhymes. Also has different vibe, more a melancholical anger.
Not as good as Peruvian Cocaine though, that was a masterpiece, a whole absorbing narrative rolled into rhyme.
