For some people, life has been quite hectic in 2014 and Hasan Salaam wants to talk about some of these things in his song “Jericho”, which will be released on his forthcoming Viper Records album Life In Black & White
. The song includes Immortal Technique and Hezekiah with their own individual verses. The video was organized by director Wayne.
Constant Flow’s first album for Viper Records, Ascension, will make it out and about in five days. He has been sharing some of his songs from it in recent weeks, here’s one that also features Melanie Fontana and Immortal Technique called “Moment Of Peace”, something all of us would love to experience in this lifetime.
For a month, Brother Ali and Immortal Technique are becoming brothers of the road with the start of The War And Peace Tour, including a show in Reno, Nevada tonight.

Ali also just released Left In The Deck, entirely produced by the Jollibee man himself, Jake One. You may stream it in full below.
Without fear, Akir is here and is ready to share his talent and verbal expertise with the world, with the help of his forthcoming album The Plan (Viper). With a vibe that is a cross between Mobb Deep, Sunz Of Man, and Smooth Da Hustler, Akir (which stands for “Always Keep It Real”) wants to be sure to keep all ears and eyes open when he is within the listening and visual vicinity, which is another way of saying that he is effective in what he does and will make people stop and pay attention. The Plan features collaborations with Swave Sevah, TL Cross, Sheena Grier, Lo Diggs, and Immortal Technique, the latter who appears in the song below, “Future”.
Not only is Akir an MC, but he’s also a producer, handling eight of the 12 tracks on the album, including five with co-producer Ty Steez, who work together as The Sound (Ty Steez also takes two songs on his own).
The Plan, figuratively and literally is a good one, and if you like Akir’s collab with Immortal Technique, you’ll be able to see them together along with Brother Ali when they tour together beginning in late September at the D.C. stop for Rock The Bells:
