Immortal Technique & Afghani Orphans Project featured on "The World"

Okay, family. I'm guessing that at least some of you are music fans and that the rest of you may know that I am an obsessive Public Radio listener. You'll indulge me in my sharing, then.

Immortal Technique, the Peruvian born free-agent rapper and political activist whose “government name” is Felipe Andres Coronel, was recently featured on Public Radio International’s “The World”as the Global Hit. The segment focused on Immortal Technique's work in raising $50,000 to open an orphanage in Afghanistan. Later, he traveled to the country to get the project off the ground. If you dig underground Hip Hop, or even if you don't, you may dig this.

(As a sidenote: shout out to the folks at The World, or to photographer Cary Stuart, for embedding the credit in the image. Freakin' Brilliant.)
