In a world dominated by celebrity culture, money, sex and politics emerges one of the rawest rappers ever - Immortal Technique.
'Tech' takes all these modern day vices and annihilates them. He delves into the hippocritical, political histories of the US and other countries and tells you what he terms 'The truth'
A man of immense intellect, Tech grew up on the mean streets of Harlem NY. He started seriously writing lyrics while in prison. There he read prolifically, attaining a deep understanding of how the world works.
Revolutionary volume 2 is like no other rap album. 9/11 features prominantly along with the US response to the tragedy. The treatment of Central and South america, the drug trade, poverty in America and a painfully personal narration of his own life experiences (Internally Bleeding, You never Know) make this album legendary in its own lifetime. Tech cuts through the crap to tell you how things really are, how the media smokescreens the truth from you every day and how governments create wars to make money
Techs rhymes and metaphors are unparalleled, as is his knowledge of history of science, a true rap polymath. You won't be disappointed...

Pros:
- Every track has a purpose, there are no directionless "I'm great, I've got loadsa cash" tracks like with so many other rappers.
- IT doesn't have the best flow in hip-hop but it's hard to fault the way he sticks to the beat, usually right on it.
- Almost every rhyme is well-constructed. Mostly none of the single-syllable lazy-ass rhyming that you see from some "rappers". A lot of dope multi-syllable rhymes.
- His opinions aren't sugarcoated, IT thrives on controversy and WILL make you think with most of the tracks on this album, even if you don't agree with his opinions.
- The beats are generally suited to the track and on-point. There are no annoying beats on this CD that you just wanna skip.
- A lot of cool/creative similes and metaphors throughout
- The album is actually constructed with thought behind the track ordering. The booklet explains the story behind each track - a nice touch. This way the album tells a story, not like most albums where the CD just seems like a random collection of tracks.
Cons/Other points:
- This CD is NOT for 50 Cent/Eminem fans and by that I mean people for whom those are their favourites. IT's purpose ain't to make club bangers or wishy-washy bling-bling crap, his aim is to voice his opinions, make you think and/or tell a narrative.
- There are a few too many skits. Tracks 1, 6, 9, 12 and 16 are skits, leaving 13 proper tracks. Although at £13 thats £1 per track - not bad value at all. Plus, Skits 6 and 12 are very thought-provoking so not a complete waste of time.
Overall - a great CD which you have to listen to a few times through before you fully appreciate it, but after that you will for sure. For true rap fans i.e. not those who just like the commercial side of rap - this is a must-have. If you're a commercial rap fan or R&B fan this is too raw for you, stick to Nelly, 50 Cent etc.

If your a fan of 50 cent or the like, well then IT's music will certainly do one of two things to you;

It will either leave make you a fan of the greatest Emcee alive OR with lyrics like, "I'll shoot your moms in the back and f*ck the bullethole until she dies", you'll possibly end up crying and traumatised for life. Either way Immortal Technique and this album is certainly not for the feint hearted.

One other guarantee I can make is that you won't find lyrics such as "...I'll let you lick the lollypop" or talk about how 'rich and bling blinged up' said person is, on Revolutionary volume 2.

What you will get is an amazing album exposing the truth about the world we live in. The subject matter is varied; everything is discussed from 9/11 and its fallout, the Bush Administration, Corporations and free trade, the rise of the Illuminati/New World Order and more.

Each song is told in a story like way that creates a vivid image of what Technique wants you to visualise mainly thanks to the lyricism which is something to be admired.

It isn't meant to be pretty boy, materialstic commercial rap made for kids who watch MTV. It is eerie, sad, gritty and hard hitting music which really hits home about the important issues in the world and how we as people allow stuff to bypass us which will only serve to be our detriment.

Overall everyone should take a listen to Revolutionary Volume II as it will certainly open your eyes to the terror the world faces in its current situation.

This album itself equates to a work of art, whilst Technqiue is Rembrandt painting the picture, albeit a gory one.

to put it simple and plain, technique is one of the darkest and intelligent hardcore mcs out there. easily blending hardcore imagery with insightful, socio-political lyrics that are not only well read and intelligent, but hard hitting and potent, due to one of the most clearest and distinctive voices to come out in recent years. the boy's gonna be big. the only reason why this didnt get 5 stars is that some of the beats are too keyboard-ish and basic.

Immortal Technique had a very rough up-bringing. He was born in a military hospital in South America. He was brought to the U.S. while a civil war was breaking out in his native Peru. From there he resided in Harlem, where he developed a new set of problems. He was bombarded with the hip-hop scene, and started rhyming at an early age. He cut school frequently and was arrested time after time for his unruly behavior. Somehow, he was able to graduate and was excepted to a state university. He ran into more problems in school, participating in even more violent altercations. He was facing several charges of aggravated assault, and inevitably would be sent to prison. He started to write down his ideas and experiences of his troubled life. He came to embrace and understand his Latino and African roots, and the tangled web of racism involved. He eventually went to prison on a 1-2 year stretch. During that time he documented his lyrics, creating songs.
Paroled in 1999, he went back to NYC an discovered a new love and talent for battling. Immortal Technique quickly became known in the underground. His disrespectful brutal lyrics became his trademark, winning countless battles at contests, clubs and even on the streets. After recording several songs that he had written in prison and some new material, they unleashed "Revolutionary Vol. 1. Their hardcore brand of street politics became even bigger in a life after 9/11. His sophomore release "Revolutionary Vol. 2" was released on Viper Records, where he is the Executive Vice President.
After learning about his background, and being a fan of politically fueled lyrics, I immediately loved this CD. His captivating lyrics make you think.
