A staple of my high school days. great fucking album. Funny you should mention that album, I just watched a great discussion with Immortal Technique on Al Jazeera, who I was listening to a lot around the same time as JMT.
I'm wondering, though.. how did this turn into the resident hip-hop thread?
With all this rap talk going on, I was wondering if you guys have seen Something from Nothing - The Art of Rap. It's a documentary about movie, made by Ice-T. Travels across the country to interview most famous rappers, talking about their history, technique, influences. Really cool.
