Immortal Technique

The politically charged rapper Immortal Technique is prepping the release of his highly anticipated album The 3rd World this June.

The follow up to 2003's Revolutionary Vol. 2, The 3rd World, marks the rapper's third studio album and first album in five years.

While on his hiatus, Immortal Technique released several freestyles and singles via the net, including "Bin Laden" featuring Mos Def and Eminem, "Watch Out," (over Rick Ross' "Hustlin'") and a music video for Akir's "Treason."

"This album is a collective effort by myself and DJ Green Lantern to merge that New York East Coast hardcore hip-hop sound with the global struggle that exists around the world," Tech told SOHH. "The conditions that affect the hood in America are just a small piece of a much larger group of issues that is consuming every country on the face of the Earth right now. This project, was made to blend the streets here with the streets from The 3rd World."

In related news, Immortal Technique has made recent news regarding the controversial Sean Bell verdict. With 100,000 views to his MySpace page in the last week, the rapper has created a blog entry for police brutality victims called "Police State Chronicles: Excerpts From the Streets." The stories from the blog will be gathered and sent to congress in efforts to put an end to police crimes. Since posted, the blog has logged over 400 personal stories.

The 3rd World hits stores on June 24th.
