American underground rap fixture Immortal Technique is taking his revolutionary style of Hip-Hop overseas as he gears up for an upcoming European tour.
The outing, which kicks off Sunday (Sept. 14) in Amsterdam , is in support of Immortal Techniques latest album The 3rd World.
In addition to showcasing his music, the rapper will utilize the tour to highlight local support in an effort to build strength in the Hip-Hop communities across Europe.
“Hip-Hop is not dead, it just lives under occupation,” said Immortal Technique, who will be joined on the tour by Viper Record label mates Diabolic and DJ GI Joe.
“But there is a guerrilla force out there fighting and it is not just rappers but the people who make up these communities and support real music, especially independent street music.”
Immortal Techniques European trek comes as the rapper recently finished a US national tour that included appearances on the Rock the Bells tour and performances at various sized venues in front of thousands.
Since its release on June 24, The 3rd World has moved more than 45,000 units independently.
The critically-acclaimed release features appearances from Chino XL, Crooked I and Ras Kass as well as production from DJ Green Lantern, Bronze Nazareth and Toure “Southpaw” Harris.
The following is a listing of Immortal Technique European tour dates, with more dates announced in the coming weeks.
