Bin Laden

My apologies for being away for so long. Time to get back on track to finish out '07. I'm giving you two tracks today from the most politically-charged rapper you've ever heard - Immortal Technique. His raps are not unsubstantiated musings. He's well-educated, well-spoken and his punchlines, you will never forget.

"Bin Laden" has gotten him the most mainstream recognition, primarily because of Mos Def's chilling chorus. People tend to get caught up in that though and miss the deeper message. The remix, produced by DJ Green Lantern, has a harder beat and begins with a great clip from an Al Sharpton speech.

Immortal Technique feat. Chuck D & KRS-One - Bin Laden (Remix) => LISTEN

Government front religious, but their heart is empty
Like a televangelist preaching out of his Bentley
Call an abortion murder in a medical building
But don't give a fuck about bombing Iraqi children
