In today’s combustible political climate, it’s more important than ever for artists to use their influence to inform and inspire their audience. Few artists have done a better job of this over the last decade than Immortal Technique and Killer Mike and select cities have the opportunity to witness both of them spitting and sermonizing over the first two weeks of November.
Immortal dropped his new project The Martyr today (download it here) and the associated tour starts tomorrow, Friday, October 28th in Syracuse, NY and continues down the East coast before heading west through the South. Killa Kill from the ‘Ville will be joining the procession from D.C. (11.2) until Austin (11.14) with yours truly backing him up on the turntables.
Each show will be more reality rap than reality TV, the fist pumping more Power to the People and less Jersey Shore, but I do guarantee those in attendance will be entertained. You already know Mike will be balancing the popular and political as only he can – come ready to hear “Never Scared” and “A.D.I.D.A.S.” alongside “That’s Life 2″ and “Pressure.” I can’t speak to Immortal’s setlist but the man hasn’t built up the following he’s got by providing his fans with anything but a top-notch performance.
