I Self Divine is one of my dearest brothers and mentors. This is the tour I’ve wanted to do for years, and it’s finally a reality.” –Brother Ali

“When I was a kid, I had a master teacher instruct me in the Martial Arts. Ju Jitsu, Street fighting. A plethora of styles to say the least. I will always remember though, what my old master said to me one day, “While you’re smoking weed, someone is running miles. While you’re playing video games, someone is practicing Kata. While you’re hanging out in the street with your friends someone is doing push ups. And when you and this person meet, he’s going to fuckin’ destroy you.” So while you’re reading this we’re doing push ups, running miles and practicing. See you soon.” Immortal Technique

Last month, MTV aired Tech N9ne’s Hostile Takeover: The Story Behind The Tour, a 30-minute tour special that gives an in-depth look at what went in to pulling off the most challenging tour in rap history. After embarking on this year’s record setting “Hostile Takeover” tour and then following up with back-to-back runs in Canada and Europe, Tech N9ne has announced that he will be headlining the “Independent Powerhouse Tour 2013.” The hard-hitting rapper will be joined on the tour by his Strange Music labelmates: gold recording artist Brotha Lynch Hung, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, along with newcomers Rittz and Ces Cru.

“I’m very excited to tour with the guys on the roster. I’ve always wanted to take Ces Cru out. I admire what Rittz does on stage and everybody’s been asking about Lynch on every tour. It’s also great to have Kutt Calhoun back on the road with us. I can’t wait for the Independent Powerhouse Tour. I wish it started today and so does Krizz Kaliko!” Say Tech

In addition, Tech N9ne has also been confirmed to perform at the 2013 Paid Dues Festival in San Bernadino, CA on March 30.

Mongolian Bling – Mongolian hip hop comes to North America March 3rd

Mongolian Bling – Mongolian hip hop comes to North America March 3rd

Posted on 26 February 2013 by admin

First Show in New York: Sun, March 3rd Loews Village VII, 9:00 PM 66 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10003 and many more to follow across the U.S.

The feature length documentary delves into traditions, history, western influence, music, culture and the search for identity of the country’s youth. In essence, it asks, “What does it mean to be Mongolian in the 21st Century?”

The question is explored through the personal stories of three Mongolian rappers:

Gennie, the country’s first female rapper who is eager to create her debut album

Quiza, a rap superstar who is blending traditional music with hip hop

Gee, an emerging gangster rapper from the slums of the capital, Ulaanbaatar

Along the way we meet a colourful supporting cast including a shaman, a music professor, traditional musicians, a retired Socialist government music censor and Mongolians living both rural and urbanised lives. Together they paint a picture of modern Mongolia and the role that hip hop and western influences are having on their ancient culture.

“Hip hop is the voice of the country’s youth and it’s such a great way of telling the story of modern Mongolia,” says the film’s writer and director, Benj Binks. “There’s definitely a parallel between modern hip hop and traditional Mongolian music and it’s been fascinating to learn about the world of Mongol Rap”.
