Immortal Technique in Afghanistan [grabbed from his Myspace]

Immortal Technique is the epitome of “talking about it and being about it”.  He has got to be one of the most REALEST in the game, hands down.  He raps about what he knows, he raps about how it is, and he raps about what it could be– never a day goes by that this cat isn’t doing something to make change, whether it’s inspiring some kid in Idaho when he presses play on his Ipod [Revolutionary V1, Revolutionary V2 or Third World] or going halfway around the WORLD to Afghanistan to build an orphanage, school and medical facility, The Amin Institute.  [In conjunction with San Fran based OMEID International].  We can’t even express how much respect goes out to Immortal Technique.

Seriously, to all you real heads out there–how many times have you gone to a ‘Save Darfur’ event or even a community organization, where you spent your money feeling like you were doing something good–only for that moment with nothing to show from it?  Rest assure all of the supporters who made it out to Technique’s numerous shows can reap the benefits of their support knowing that their contributions weren’t in vain.

He’s kicking off another tour STARTING TODAY in NYC, if you live around anyone of these dates, come out show your support to an INDIE Artist who actually practices what he preaches–
