you know,,,,, you'd almost think some of these artists maybe didn't like fearless leader. Of course I'm just speaking hypothetically, how could anyone not love fearless leader.


Not sure what the point of this FPP is not like it's rare to find these songs.

Am I the only person that thinks Immortal Technique is a really subpar rapper? I mean I appreciate his message and I don't mean to rag on the post or anything, but I feel like he gets a lot more credit than he deserves simply because he writes songs dealing vaguely with leftist ideology.

Oh yeah, because leftist shit is so hard to find in underground rap these days, p3on.

Thanks hadjiboy. From your via link, it looks like there are over 100 songs being offered for free.

Can somebody please tell me what this was about, since the OP didn't feel the need to bless us with descriptive link text?

They say the rebels in Iraq still fight for Saddam
But that's bullshit, I'll show you why it's totally wrong
Cuz if another country invaded the hood tonight
It'd be warfare through Harlem, and Washington Heights
I wouldn't be fightin' for Bush or White America's dream
I'd be fightin' for my people's survival and self-esteem
I wouldn't fight for racist churches from the south, my nigga
I'd be fightin' to keep the occupation out, my nigga


Immortal Technique may be a one trick pony, but what a fucking trick.

Well, I don't know about the mp3's but I was happy I watched 'India's small contribution' just for the lines:
"Saddam you scoundrel where are the weapons
These inspectors instead of eyes have buttons"

Someone's gotta pick up the slack for Rage Against the Machine. They were in their peak at the wrong time.

From the latest essay on Immortal Techniques' website:

...whenever I did any of the prison programs I do for young Black and Latino people and walked through all the neighborhoods in America I saw people of all so called races, and social walks of life who gained nothing but suffering from our foreign policy.

So naturally the question that always comes to mind when I read about protecting US interests is "Just whose interests in the US are we protecting?" It's most certainly not the interests of the people at the bottom of the de facto caste system. They are not on the board of directors at the Banks that give developing countries loans to pay off the interest from the loans they were previously given a few decades ago. And they aren't ones who have been selling you a $5 cup of coffee that costs a fraction of a penny to produce while starving out their workers and blocking their collective bargaining. People who argue that the middle class would enjoy discounts by way of cheaper products because of outsourcing jobs are useless. Their like an asshole who roots for a sports team with the logic that if they win the superbowl, or the world series they will personally inherit the economic boom enjoyed by the city itself. Local businesses have a good day but, sports stores sell Jersey's, the city pays for a new stadium sometimes. But after that the painfully obvious fact that there is little gain sinks in and someone's who just lost their 401K 's gotta clean up the ticker tape parade.

"I Slept Through It" from the Twinemen

"While my head was buried in the sand
A flag got jammed in a foreign land
Now it flies in towers in Baghdad
But I'm too scared to say 'that's not my flag'"


And I still think "Mosh" from Eminem is one of the best.

Thanks for the YouTube link schyler!

Afroblanco: The OP would suggest that the commenter move his gaze slightly to the top right hand corner of the post, where he can see the tags that might give him some indication as to the purpose of this post.

If the commenter is unable to do so then the OP would suggest that he take the time to click on one of the links and listen to the contents of the clips. (Granted, the OP should've given some sort of description as to what the post might be about, but failing to do so, one would assume that the commenter had enough sense to do the above.)

If all of this is beyond him then the OP would humbly request the commenter to skip the post entirely and move onto something that might be a little more palatable to his tastes... (thank you).
