We had the pleasure of speaking with Immortal Technique in between tour dates while traveling through rural Texas. The topography made for sketchy cell reception, but we were finally able to get him on the line long enough to discuss his new release “The Martyr” (available for FREE from our downloads page), as well as the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Enjoy!
