Top 10 ‘Socially Conscious’ Rappers

HTF have put together our top 10 socially aware and politically conscious rappers. Check out the list inside.

1. Immortal Technique

Felipe Andres Coronel, better known as Immortal Technique, is a Peruvian born American rapper as well as an urban activist. He was born in Lima, Peru and raised in Harlem. Most of his lyrics focus on controversial issues in global politics. The views expressed in his lyrics are largely commentary on issues such as class struggle, Marxism, poverty, religion, government ,imperialism and institutional racism. He has voiced a desire to retain control over his production, and has stated in his music that record companies, not artists themselves, profit the most from mass production and marketing of music. He claimed in an interview to have sold close to a combined total of 200,000 copies of his three official releases. There are rappers in this list who are considered by many to be more skilled or even more dedicated to ‘socially consciousness’ hip-hop. But the reason why Tech tops this is list simple, he brings together these issues with his soul splitting flow better than no other. His career has always been dedicated to spreading these issues in a way which can be understood by anyone, but as well as this his flow and ability to string together some mind-bending bars is why he is number 1. He symbolizes the voice of truth all around the world in the name of hip-hop. If you want to listen to some banging hip-hop and be properly educated by the truth. Simple. Listen to Tech.
