Am i the only one getting tired of IT and feel like they have outgrown him?.. When you really get down to it, he just don't deserve any real praise. For his activism? Sure, but judging purely from a musical stand point, he truly sucks, althought Revolutionary Vol. 2 still holds up as his only worthwhile album. His attitude and psychotic demeanor just rubs me the wrong way now. One of my first favorite MC's (Yes i still call them that), but i'm just not that angry anymore. We had a good run Technique.
Nigga aint released a true album since Revolutionary Vol. 2 8 yrs ago, what the fuck man? Tech is one of my faves but c'mon son stop fucking around in South America building orphanages and release a fucking album dude. I'm saying this almost 2 YEARS since I left my last comment.
It really is great when an artist like this puts everything he has into his music. It really makes a difference if the quality and the fans can tell. http://cannellabeautyschools.com/cbs_financialaid.html
Last.fm statistics don't qualify a band to be underground or mainstream seeing how only like 2% of music fans on this earth actually use this site. Most people who use this site have more than your average taste in music, which would be the reason why underground artists have a little more listeners on here.
Immortal Technique is the best hip hop there is. Anyone who dislikes him simply doesn't "get" it. Some people say they don't like some of the things he says, but it's not like you have to take all his lyrics seriously, just enjoy them for what they are. But I do tend to agree with his politics, so maybe it's just me.
