“All Apologies Before we continue, I would like to take a moment to apologize for something I wrote recently that has the local hip-hop community up in arms, and justifiably so. Two weeks ago, in pimping a Higher Ground Ballroom appearance by Immortal Technique, I wrote a spotlight blurb playing with the thug stereotype often associated with rap and hip-hop. Essentially, I attempted to cheekily suggest that jail time boosts a rapper’s street cred, which drew the ire of certain MCs in the 802 who accused me of “clowning” the entire genre. Hoo boy.”

“Straight Outta Locash Nothing boosts your hip-hop cred like jail time. Freshly released from a six-month stint in the clink, rising underground hip-hop star Immortal Technique is ready to reclaim the mantle he set aside as one of the genre’s more philosophical and socially conscious voices. The Saturday, Tech returns to the Higher Ground Ballroom with longtime collaborator DJ GI Joe, Mohammad Dangerfield and local comers DJ A-Dog and Nastee, and BURNTmd. ”
