Its important that we make this alliance to affirm the notion that Hip Hop music and culture will forever be linked to the people and conditions that birthed it. Every artist on this tour is known for giving incredible live shows that create moments and uplift the spirits of the people. Were also deeply committed to allowing the music to build community and fight for justice. Immortal Technique and his crew are like family to me. I Self Divine is one of my dearest brothers and mentors. This is the tour Ive wanted to do for years, and its finally a reality. Brother Ali
"When I was a kid, I had a master teacher instruct me in the Martial Arts. Ju Jitsu, Street fighting. A plethora of styles to say the least. I will always remember though, what my old master said to me one day, "While you're smoking weed, someone is running miles. While you're playing video games, someone is practicing Kata. While you're hanging out in the street with your friends someone is doing push ups. And when you and this person meet, he's going to fuckin' destroy you." So while you're reading this we're doing push ups, running miles and practicing. See you soon." - Immortal Technique
About the artists:
Brother Ali: With a recently released fifth studio album (and fifth release on Rhymesayers) now under his belt in the form of Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color, Midwestern emcee Brother Ali has solidified himself as a name to be remembered in the Hip Hop landscape of today. His critically acclaimed work is known for having a political edge with talk of faith and reality, and though his messages have strong appeal to his audience, his uniquely soulful tone and cadence have earned Ali a strong following and an ear-catching catalog of work.
Immortal Technique: A Harlem-based emcee who progressed through the ranks of the New York City battle rap scene and found success as a recording artist. Although he is a accomplished lyricist, Immortal Technique is also widely known as a voice of Revolution/activism. The Billboard charting artist has sold over 250,000 records and been hard at work preparing his long awaited 4th album The Middle Passage, and recently released an award winning DVD entitled The (R)evolution of Immortal Technique (directed by Cary Stuart).
Poison Pen: Though many may know his name through his extensive work in battle rap, Poison Pen also keeps busy as an emcee and show host. He has appeared on URL, Grind Time Now, BET, MTV, and more. The Brooklyn native also raps alongside Immortal Technique as part of the world famous crew 'Rebel Arms'.
