18 Songs, 1 Hour 7 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

There was a time not so long ago when revolution-minded rap music actually sold, thanks to artists like Public Enemy, Poor Righteous Teachers, KRS-One, The Coup, X-Clan, and dead prez. Somewhere along the way, things got progressively watered down, to the point where most emcees chose the easy way to airplay: rhyming about phony cartels, fancy cars, and designer clothes. Luckily, Immortal Technique never got the memo and keeps cranking out thought-provoking, instigation hip-hop, taking aim at corrupt governments, institutional racism, and general ignorance in all its forms. Revolutionary Vol. 2 was originally released in 2003 and is arguably his best work to date. It kicks off with an intro from Mumia Abu-Jamal before launching into 17 tracks that perfectly balance intelligence with hard-hitting beats while addressing the drug war ("Peruvian Cocaine"), September 11th ("Homeland and Hip Hop"), music-industry shadiness ("The Message & the Money"), and the confluence of religion and war ("The 4th Branch"). 

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.
