This is a mixtape from praised underground mc Immortal Technique, a release that follows a 5 year long absence, hosted and mostly produced by DJ Green Lantern.
Green Lantern did a pretty disappointing job on the production which is simply awful on the track "The 3rd World", barely decent on the rest while surprisingly acceptable on "Death March", Chino XL did an even worse job on "Lick Shots", predictably, even Bronze Nazareth's beat sounds weak.
Immortal Technique does come up with good lyrics, even thought I can't say that I enjoyed his overaggressive approach on some songs and the senseless casual verses, politics is still a very used subject in the lyrics but tracks like "Reverse Pimpology" are embarrassing to listen to.
This release can show off one good gem that can be compared to Immortal Technique's previous work, that is "Crimes Of The Heart", an amazing song which comes along a beautiful beat and Technique sounds more relaxed, a similar approach to the one displayed on his previous albums.
So far this album sounds more of a commercial move by the rapper, what people should take in consideration is that this is nothing more than a mixtape, Technique has stated that he stopped working on his next album recently just to take care of this release, I'm expecting "The Middle Passage" to be closer to what we heard in his past albums, I sure hope it will.
Apparently some people got their feelings hurt by the words above, some idiots don't accept this being a mixtape, while others don't agree with my view.
I am a huge Immortal Technique fan, his second album is the only 10/10 rating on here, it had everything, from the feeling to the message, but this release is not even close to it's level.
I realized that i might have been a little harsh on the rating, now that I've passed the initial disappointment i can appreciate this release a little more, however, I still stand with what i wrote before.
