“People can tell me all day that Obama is a war president. He’s an individual who’s violated human rights of other people with drone strikes and what not, that he deported more people than [George W.] Bush, which is true, all these things are potentially true, but at the same time, do I think that Mitt Romney is going to be the solution to that problem? Do I think in any way shape or form, that it would be logical for black and Latino people to vote for someone like that? Or even white Americans who are looking to advance themselves in middle class and working class America. No. That doesn’t mean that I think Barack Obama is a savior or that I’m campaigning or even voting for him. Don’t tell me simply because the food in front of me is rotten that the shit you got in the trunk of your car is better. I digress from that by saying that traditionally in hip-hop, we’ve had a very political culture that’s always been associated with questioning what people tell us is unquestionable. Only because the hypocrisy [of] what we’re told we can question and what we can’t question or what we remember and what we’re told not remember.”

We caught up with Tech, recently at a show here in NY, where he was gracious enough to provide us with a very insightful interview. Tech took the time to speak on a set of topics including his recent humbling experience visiting Haiti and seeing the conditions of the people. He also shared solutions that people of the U.S. could use to strengthen themselves in this currently struggling economy, and gave some advice on helping to strengthen the minds of our youth as well. He concluded the interview with some worthy details on his anticipated upcoming album “The Middle Passage”, which hopefully will be released before the end of the year.

Yes… more.
