New Music: Immortal Technique “Toast to the Dead”
Always topical, noted fellow Hunter College High School alum Immortal Technique decided the day Muammar Gadhafi was killed was the perfect time to drop “Toast to the Dead”. Believe it or not, “Toast to the Dead” is actually a political anthem (Technique has one or two of those), featuring such enlightened platitudes as “Fuck a moment of silence/I need a moment of violence”, but the real reason to listen is the J Dilla beat cut by DJ Green Lantern. “Toast to the Dead” is the first track to see the light of day off the upcoming Martyr project, which should be coming free to the people sometime soon. #OccupyHulkShare.
