Spitfire political rapper Immortal Technique has released a new free mixtape, and this is one you're going to want to tune in for.
The Martyr drops today, and a more aggravated and inspired approach is heard on his new material, from the verbal assault of "Toast to the Dead" to the all-star crusher of "Civil War." The latter track hit the web yesterday, and features Immortal trading bars with Public Enemy's Chuck D, Rhymesayers' living legend Brother Ali and Killer Mike.
It's the quite the lineup – Ali's flow in the final verse arguably takes the cake as the song comes to a close. Stream "Civil War" below.
Immortal's Martyr mixtape will undoubtedly by featured on his upcoming tour, where the rapper hits the road through December. The no-holds-barred songwriter, ferocious freestylist and incendiary social activist/commentator pulls no punches, and as you heard above on "Civil War," The Martyr is no exception.
