Comment: Wow, this is a pleasent surprise. Immortal Micunion drop some nice rhymes on "writing for freedom" and are helped by a mellow beat from T1X that switches midway through into a great piano-laced gem. The Common sample on the hook is cut to perfection, and both MC's impress. Listen.

Comment: Joshua King writes:
Every once in a while after you purchase an album, you will feel a heightened sense of satisfaction. You will feel as though every single cent you spent on its purchase was well worth it. For nearly anyone who loves Hip-Hop, that feeling should hit immediately upon purchasing this album.
The Immortal Micunion takes their sophomore effort and goes right back to the great vibe and depth found on their first offering, O.R.I.O.N. and, although hardly plausible, they take their abilities a step further making the invite to listen to every song, as opposed to a few selected favorites, an easy one to RSVP.
Released by an independent label, DeepThinka Records, out of Buffalo, NY, this album shows no signs of lackluster performances or beats. In fact the soundscapes provided by Tone X are an amazing accompaniment to the decidedly intense vocals.
In Metaphor Metropolis, a song that paints the perfect picture of a Hip-Hop Haven, Ajent O rhymes, "Yo, you feeling this elevation / where children is
willing to get an education / 'cause we instill them with the feeling of
building a nation / Built this city from the ground down."
Later, on Sacrifice, slavery is spoken to, showing vividly the sacrifice many have made, "they got me fighting for freedom like a fish that's fighting for breathing / hooked on a rod / they got me looking for a god /
visions of Amistad."
Basically, A Declaration of Independents stands on its own as what this art is truly capable of when at its best. The only true problem or pain you'll feel when listening to this album is frustration over having to wait for another Immortal Micunion release.
