Harlem rapper Immortal Technique has returned to the states after a two-week journey to Afghanistan where he participated in the opening of the Amin Institute, an orphanage, school, and medical facility for children.

According to Immortal Technique in regards to the Afghan people, "If you are a visitor, they will treat you like one of their own and more ... they are some of the humbled and more respectful people I have ever come across. You have to admire their resilience of their spirit, fighting again and again [against the Soviets, Taliban and Al Qaeda] to retain their independence and identity."

His experiences will be documented in a movie he is producing with filmmaker C. Stuart who accompanied him to Afghanistan.
