The 3rd World (2008)

Type :    

  Summary  

The 3rd World is an album/mixtape by rapper Immortal Technique, following a five-year absence since Revolutionary Vol. 2. It was released on June 24, 2008, on Viper Records. The 3rd World peaked at number 99 on the Billboard 200 chart. He claimed in an interview from September 2009 to have sold more than 60,000 copies. The album was conceived while recording material for other forthcoming projects with DJ Green Lantern and Southpaw.

In 2009 Immortal Technique used the proceeds from this album to fund and construct an orphanage in Afghanistan.

Throughout the album, Immortal Technique argues that the repressed black, Asian and Latino people of the United States are the natural allies of the people of the Third World.

On the album's title track (and stand-out track), Technique raps, "I'm from where police brutality's not half as nice / And makes the hood in America look like paradise / Compared to the AIDS-infested Caribbean slum / African streets where the passport's an American gun / I'm from where they massacre people and try to keep it quiet / And spend the next 25 years tryin to deny it / From where the only place democracy's acceptable / Is if America's candidate is electable / From where they overthrow democratic leaders / Not for the people but for the Wall Street Journal readers." The track is a catchy and succint expression of the anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist and socialist denunciations of the US empire expressed by western writers such as William Blum and Noam Chomsky and Third World writers like Franz Fanon, Eduardo Galeano and Aníbal Quijano.
