Immortal Technique is a favorite among politically active hip-hoppers, and its been a couple years since we’ve seen an official album from Tech. And Miami’s been fiendin’ for some new music from him since that insanely dope and insanely successful show that Revolution Hip Hop threw last year at Studio A.
Well, the wait is over as Immortal Technique’s new album The 3rd World is slated for a June 24th release. The album features production by Green Lantern, Southpaw, Buckwild and Scram Jones. while featuring guest spots are filled by Chino XL, Crooked I, RasKass, Psycho Realm and Diabolic.
As a fan of hip-hop, I am definitely curious to hear what Tech has to say nowadays because as you can already imagine, this has to be one of the most interesting political climates that any generation has seen and I’m sure Tech has a couple things to get off his chest. Plus, on a music level, everything that has been released from everybody else in the music game lately has been “safe”. We can definitely expect Tech to give us the opposite of that. Here’s a quick synopsis (slash mini press release) of what to expect. Words are courtesy of our partners over at Public Wizard, who actually represent Tech…
“Immortal Technique has been touring the world after his previous release Revolutionary Vol. 2, including the Rock the Bells Tour for the past 3 years. This has kept him quite busy with the anticipation of his next release growing steadily by the day. Finally Immortal Technique and DJ Green Lantern (DJ for Jay Z & Sirius Satellite) complete their vision of colliding their worlds into one full-length album. The mix of street Hip Hop with the vivid landscapes of global struggle shows that world politics and music politics are almost one in the same. While still a full-length album, DJ Green Lantern blends and mixes it from start to finish, with about a 1/3 of the production to his name. Expect to hear Immortal Technique’s striking lyrics on an even more street influenced production that occasionally fortifies him to show his bi-lingual versatility on the mic.” – Public Wizard, Inc
Yeah. Get that.
