Editorial Reviews

Revolutionary Volume 1 and Revolutionary Volume 2 both immediately electrified the underground hip hop constituency, demanding intensive scrutiny and serving as the backbone for Tech's rapidly burgeoning commercial profile. Consumer interest in these titles persist (as evidenced by sustained sales), with demand for these reissues to expectantly increase with the release of Tech's third album, The Middle Passage, on Babygrande Records this coming fall. 2005.

"Nobody's better than me, they just have better marketing schemes." ~ Immortal Technique

(4 1/2 STARS) Immortal Technique's "Revolutionary Vol. 2" and "Vol. 1" for that matter are an example of real underground hip hop, the kind of underground hip hop that only has a few short reviews on Amazon.com. The type of underground hip hop that you won't hardly ever find at your local CD store. The type of underground hip hop that is so underground, underground fans don't know who he is. With that said, this isn't a particularly good or bad thing. It shows two things. First, it shows that any emcee as radical as Immortal Technique, underground or mainstream, will be shunned by media and institutions everywhere. Second, it is simply a shame that anyone with as much talent as Technique is so slept on. Recently, "Revolutionary 2" has gained a bit more notoriety, and certainly more attention then his debut, but ultimately Technique is a very talented rapper who is so opinionated, he has whittled his own fan base down to a select group of people - and good for him. Any artist willing to stay true to themselves and not compromise their message is an artist worth listening to. Don't get me wrong, there are things I don't like about this album, without a doubt, but ironically, but I can't complain really. You get exactly what you pay for with this album, because this is, without a doubt, a one-way ticket into the mind of a revolutionary, and when I say revolutionary, I don't mean a politically active emcee the likes of Mos Def. I mean an outspoken, coup-d'etat, overthrow the government type of revolutionary, and to many people, such a person is irrational or even frightening, but regardless of first impressions, do not allow yourself to pass over this emcee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Political rage from a troubled, yet gifted songwriter September 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Immortal Technique had a very rough up-bringing. He was born in a military hospital in South America. He was brought to the U.S. while a civil war was breaking out in his native Peru. From there he resided in Harlem, where he developed a new set of problems. He was bombarded with the hip-hop scene, and started rhyming at an early age. He cut school frequently and was arrested time after time for his unruly behavior. Somehow, he was able to graduate and was excepted to a state university. He ran into more problems in school, participating in even more violent altercations. He was facing several charges of aggravated assault, and inevitably would be sent to prison. He started to write down his ideas and experiences of his troubled life. He came to embrace and understand his Latino and African roots, and the tangled web of racism involved. He eventually went to prison on a 1-2 year stretch. During that time he documented his lyrics, creating songs.

Paroled in 1999, he went back to NYC an discovered a new love and talent for battling. Immortal Technique quickly became known in the underground. His disrespectful brutal lyrics became his trademark, winning countless battles at contests, clubs and even on the streets. After recording several songs that he had written in prison and some new material, they unleashed "Revolutionary Vol. 1. Their hardcore brand of street politics became even bigger in a life after 9/11. His sophomore release "Revolutionary Vol. 2" was released on Viper Records, where he is the Executive Vice President.

After learning about his background, and being a fan of politically fueled lyrics, I immediately loved this CD. His captivating lyrics make you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow October 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely stunned, frankly there has never been an album that has changed the way i thought, and heard everything else as much as this. No rap album has come close to what this has done in the last few years. Immortal technique spits what he wants with absolute precision targeting everything from major label rappers, the media, religon, corporate america, life in the ghetto, etc.

His flow is abosolutely on point not missing a single beat and his rhymes go from vivid storytellnig to making fun of whatever he wants. The standout tracks are by far "Freedom of speech" which makes fun of major label rappers and them being controlled by their labels. "You never know" which paints a vivid picture of one of the saddest love songs you will ever hear over a beat and "Harlem Streets" whos title is pretty self explanatory as he tells everyone what MTV rappers wont tell you about real life in the ghetto.

In short, this is by far the album to get if your looking for political rap. It is the most moving, infuriating, amusing, well done verbal attack by any single rapper i have yet to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Socially/Politically Conscious Album in Years November 18, 2004
By Securis
Format:Audio CD
This album's been in the top 3 on my Amazon recommendations list for almost a year. Now that I've finally picked it up, I can understand why. As someone who's greatly concerned with the state of the globe at this bizarre period in time, it's reassuring to know that there are other socially conscious people working to get the truth out to their peers: Immortal Technique is definitely a lyrical force to be wreckoned with. I listened to the CD non-stop twice through, and can honestly say that you won't be disappointed if you're a hip-hop head who knows that there are some things severely wrong with our country and the world in general.

The beats are interesting, but the best part of the album is the lyrical flow and the meaning embedded in each and every verse. Not one to casually mention some $#!+ he hasn't researched, it's evident that Immortal Technique is the most thought-provoking lyricist to enter the scene in the past 10 years. Jay-Z may have a stranglehold on the Bling Scene in rap music, but Immortal Technique is the reigning underground king in my opinion. If you're looking for a fresh perspective on all that's wrong with the world today (with some dope beats to match), cop this CD. However, if you're content to have mindless corporate crap forced down your throat, go check out the latest cash money or puff daddy release.
