Savage Jukebox: Immortal Technique's "4th Branch"

Here is a recent video from hip-hop artist Immortal Technique. His website biography tells us about his background:
Born in a military hospital in South America, Immortal Technique was brought to the United States in the early 80's while a civil war was breaking out in his native Peru. The US supported puppet democracy and Guerilla factions were locked in a bitter struggle which ended like most do in Latin America, with the military and economic aid of the State Dept. through channels like the CIA. Although he had escaped the belligerent poverty and social turmoil of life in the 3rd world, he was now residing in Harlem which had its own share of drama...
He... began to study in depth about the Revolutionary ideas that had caused a history of uprising in the indigenous community of his Native South America... Paroled in 1999, Immortal Technique returned to NYC and began a campaign to claim victory to what he had discovered he had a talent for; battling... Immortal Technique left the battle circuit and released his critically acclaimed Revolutionary Vol. 1.
His October 03 release of Vol. 2 included this song - "The 4th Branch" - that thoroughly exposes the savagery of Uncle Sam's corrupt imperialist media complex.
