Since his debut album ‘Revolutionary Part 1′, Harlem-based rapper Felipe Coronel or better known as IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE has always been well-known to be a powerful political-conscience MC that is not afraid to speak out his left-wing idealism against government corruption and corporate greed through his music.
And It’s been three years since Immortal Technique released his latest anticipated album ‘The 3rd World’ in 2008 due to all his attention being more passionately concentrated towards engaging humanitarian activism across the globe. But it does not mean Technique has forgotten his fans and their thirst to be intellectually inspired by his lyrics. Recently, Immortal Technique released a free 16-track mixtape of never-before-heard materials produced DJ Green Lantern and Southpaw. (download here at official Viper Records or Mediafire )
Not only is it free, but the mixtape features an impressive cast of distinguished MCs such asBrother Ali, Dead Prez, Killer Mike, Chuck D, and many more. Immortal Technique has remained politically aggressive and incredibly vicious with his socially conscious lyrics. The bar is raised on the dramatically paced track “Civil War” with Killer Mike, Chuck D, and Brother Ali. With the ongoing series of Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, Immortal Technique has picked a no better time to release the track “Rich Man’s World (1%)”. But my personal favorite from this mixtape is none other than “Eyes in the Sky” featuring Mojo of Dujeous that sampled the same-titled original by The Alan Parson Project with an awing introduction
