Today we are chilling it with a new up and coming rapper named Immortal Imhotep.
HipHopLEAD: Very interesting name. How did it come about?
Immortal Imhotep: Peace HHL and thanks for havin a Noble. When I was a youth I read a lot of Egyptology books and I liked that name and it fit me to a t.
HipHopLEAD: Where area are you reppin?
Immortal Imhotep: I rep where the state of Maryland does business at. Its original name is TaniaMauri Territorial Estates.
HipHopLEAD: Marlyand isn’t exactly put on the map yet in the hiphop community. Do you think that will hold you back as an artist?
Immortal Imhotep: Not at all because I have a strong fan base and a great team behind me, grindin.
HipHopLEAD: What made you wanna get into HipHop?
Immortal Imhotep: I listen to a lot of political hiphop like, KRS 1, PRT, XClan, and PE. They instilled knowledge of self within me at a young age. And it made me want to participate and build a foundation.
HipHopLEAD: You sited Chuck D as a big influence to get into music. Who or what else really made you want to be an emcee?
Immortal Imhotep: Rakim, Run DMC, Slick Rick, LL, NWA, Fresh Prince, EPMD, Ice T, GangStarr and Too Short
HipHopLEAD: You have a strong presence on the Digital Dynasty mixtape series. Whether it is music or Psa’s. Are you happy with the response you have received on there? And which volume is your favorite and why?
Immortal Imhotep: I am grateful for the response. I had no idea it was gonna take off this big, this fast. But timing is everything. Hard work and stayin’ on the grind is key. I really cant pick a favorite vol but, I would pick the one with Ras Kass as number one because Rassy is one of my favorites also. He spits real shit e’rytime
HipHopLEAD: Your Upcoming Projects are scheduled like this.
6/25/10 Charlottz Web “Blood In My Eye” EP
10/10/10 Dead Slave’s From Kingz N Queenz To Niggaz N Bytchez Vol 1: Dante’s Inferno
3/21/11 42 NEGAtive Confession of Ma’at: Leviathan’s Law

What can we expect from each project and how do they differ? Why would the fans want to get them?
Immortal Imhotep: You can expect bangin ass music, not just beats, its knowledge and entertainment on a whole new level. The fans would want to get it because the beats are very soulfoul and touch the spirit as well as make you dance.
HipHopLEAD: Recently Waka Flocka said lyrics don’t matter. What is your opinion on that? and do lyrics matter to you in your music?
Immortal Imhotep: I think Waka gets paid to say that. He really doesn’t know his history in hiphop. Its not necessarily bout the money b/c the money will come. Its about longevity and when the person who has the mic is saying something she/he will last a very long time. Look at GangStarr, they never went platinum but, are respected worldwide for bangin shit.
HipHopLEAD: Are you on a label?
Immortal Imhotep: Right now I am independent but, thanks to Advo, he linked me with Sony Studios. I will talk to my promotions/marketing team to see if we can make magic.
HipHopLEAD: What is a typical weekend like for you?
