this is something i have been noticing as of lately it seems that while dead prez has been known for the politicial rap and pushing it envelope it appears that immortal technique has been up the baton.

what i dont understand is how I.T. seems to get more recognize then Dead Prez

Dead prez have never managed to live up to their classic debut. Everything they've dropped since has been extremely mediocre.

A. IMMORTAL TECH HANDLES HIS BUSINESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

one of the most underrated niggas out there, in terms of managing his own career. this nigga has toured the world many times over, off the strength of 2 studio albums... IT laid the blueprint down, on how to independently CAKE through... TOURING, MERCH, and ALBUMS, in a diluted landscape...

B. IMMORTAL TECH stays in front of the people, and let the momentum he built, carry him to higher levels...

dead prez dropped a CLASSIC debut, and sat on their hands, only to come back YEARS later, with INFERIOR product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

im a bigger fan of IT the BUSINESSMAN than IT the rapper, but i love revolutionary vol 2, and always love to hear son spit a verse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

C. IT NEVER wanted the MAJOR LABEL treatment... DEAD PREZ DID... you cant make DEAD PREZ music, on a major label, and expect a BIG RETURN... which is why they are still working on ways, to facilitate their message, through indy mixtapes... they are still trying to get traction, while IT lane is there, and NOT MOVING... nigga hasnt dropped an album in years, and he still getting booked here to there!!!!!!!!!!!

love both acts... but niggas could learn ALLLLOOOT about the game, if they watched how IT gets down, behind the scenes... THATS AN INDEPENDENT BOSS making REAL money in a fucked up time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

id love to see IT write a book, on how to navigate the BIZ!!!!!!!!!!

off comment.... LOL @ the BONUS TRACK titles, on RBG... that shit probably made so many frat boys, MAAAAD, when they slid that shit into the PC... BAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I much preferred Immortal Technique's 2nd album to his first.

Fatal Guillotine
02-18-2011, 02:38 PM
i remember tech saying his writing process was different on the second album because at the time of his first album he didnt know how to count bars or structure his songs becuase his didnt have any music to really write to

he say something to towards the effective that he would try to remember what played over the speakers and try to write to it

i think it would be a great idea if some dj (think muggs or rdj2) composed a mixtape with just political rappers doing there thing hell even bring back Paris and P.E.

Pacsta - I am comming at you as a friend... A friend who wouldn't cosign a damn thing you've said.


You sound like an idiot, a backpacking fudge packer, please stop embarassing yourself. Immortal Technique is probably the most over rated underground rapper of all time for these reasons.

1. His flow is hot garbage
2. He has lyrical abilities but gets boring after 3 songs
3. He almost never raps over a beat thats above mediocre quality
4. He is a one trick pony

Yes I admit he is a good business man and would never sell out, yes I admit he can freestyle and no I don't give a fuck because I don't listen to music based on business skills or feel that his freestyling is enough to give him a pass.

I mean really Pacsta I could have agreed to disagree and not even commented on your shit until you started trying to claim IT > prodigy. IT has never done anything that could remotely fuck with Mobb Deep its beyond a matter of opinion, you can look at the history of these artists and factually break down the content of their careers. LOL at calling prodigy a club rapper. Far from true and comes off sounding more like hate since an IT dickrider of your caliber is unlikely to even get into a club. Your posts remind me of mine when I was maybe 14. I'm guessing that would be your age range since you reek of bad taste and desperately trying to be that cool outsider who struggles with women due to lack of style and obvious self esteem issues.

I would bump lil b over IT any day - don't bother comming back at me with some oh KBOS likes pop rap KBOS likes pop rap type bullshit cuz im not hearing it. Unlike some of you self righteous morons who are ashamed to admit what you really are (faggy no swag having backpackers) I peep all corners of the hip-hop genre.

LOL at calling onyx and mobb deep generic and LOL harder at thinking ITs personal life should mean shit when it comes to judging his music.

Too many of you faggots get caught up in rappers personal lives and use it as reasons to like or dislike rappers - seriously arent you nigs a little smarter than that?? Most of your favorite rappers are not what their image presents them to be just in case anyone is unaware. Its entertainment, enjoy and be entertained.

it's an art form first and foremost, then entertainment. and some MCs (KRs, Tech) use it to spew their beliefs and concerns. others (mobb deep, onyx) use it to just spew "street shit" that uncle toms and white boys can bump in their cars. simple as that

Topics are all subjective not everyone wants to listen to political raps, just like not every one wants to listen to street shit.

As for his contributions that means dick and doesn't really have anythig to do with his music, Lil Wayne was out there in Hurrican Katrina helping people but people don't put him on a pedestal as an artist because of that do they?

I would argue that it is both an art form AND entertainment first and foremost. Regardless there are no walls around art, use it to express whatever the fuck is in your brain. Just because a nigga doesn't kick knowledge every ryhme shouldn't make his raps less valuable. Thats some simple shit. Rap as both art and entertainment is better off without these walls and guidelines you are trying to put up. Political shit, ignorant ghetto shit, demented shit, relaxing shit, hard shit, party shit, educational shit, fucking space aliens rape love hate sex drugs fucking anything can be artistically expressed in rap and by calling someone an uncle tom for having a different taste in hip-hop you make yourself look like a simple ass nigga. Ironic considering you are siding with the emcees who kick knowledge.


Hip-hop would be a lot better if niggaz had the mind capacity to listen to all corners of the genre rather then dickriding their favorite corner and hating on everything else. Everybody has their preferences in hip-hop but the constant hating of differing opinions brings the whole genre down.

you want generic rap? go listen to mobb deep or onyx.
:lmao::lmao::lmao:

Tech was in afghan building orphanages. what are other rappers doing? dancing with the stars? judges on american idol? you fucking ignorant uncle toms
Technique is that dude. He makes great music (for most parts), and I truly respect his work, but why would that matter when it comes to IT the MC? His art is no better or worse whether he's a dick(and I've been told he kinda is by people who've met him, but they might've caught him at a bad time or whatever.. who gives a shit?) or a fucking angel. It encourages you to buy his albums, knowing something good'll probably come out of it, but it doesn't change anything. And it certainly doesn't make him better than Mobb Deep or Onyx.
