No longer content to speak on the ills of the 'hood, Immortal Technique go global, chronicling America's long history of Third World imperialism. On the title track, the Peruvian-born emcee describes a place where "the water is cursed" and "they cut the hands off if you make a fist." This isn't so much to diminish the injustices carried out in the States (check "Open Your Eyes"), but rather to demonstrate that the medium of hip-hop is a weapon that crosses national boundaries. Some of it is didactic, but Green Lanterns' beats are dizzying and visceral.
