- Event Details
Born in a military hospital in South America, Immortal Technique was
brought to the United States in the early 80's while a civil war was
breaking out in his native Peru. The US supported puppet democracy and
Guerilla factions were locked in a bitter struggle which ended like
most do in Latin America, with the military and economic aid of the
State Dept. through channels like the CIA. Although he had escaped the
belligerent poverty and social turmoil of life in the 3rd world, he was
now residing in Harlem which had its own share of drama. Growing up on
the streets of New York, the young man became enamored with Hip Hop
culture, writing graffiti and starting to rhyme at an early age.
Although he frequently cut school and ended up being arrested time and
time again for his wild behavior, the kid still managed to finish high
school and got accepted to a state university. Unfortunately the
survivalist and aggressive attitude that was the norm in New York City
caused him to be involved in more violent altercations at school,
whether it was with other brothers, false flaggers or the relentlessly
racist population of an uncultured Middle America. MORE
OutKast associate Killer Mike earned his own hit in 2003 with "A.D.I.D.A.S." He debuted two years earlier on "The Whole World," from the greatest-hits Big Boi and Dre Present...OutKast. After signing to Columbia, his first single, "A.D.I.D.A.S.," hit the pop charts in March 2003, and the subsequent album, Monster, debuted in the Top Ten. In 2006 he released the first volume of his mixtape series I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind. Two years later a second volume appeared and then, in 2011, the series graduated to "aboveground" status when the third volume, PL3DGE, landed on the SMC label.
