“I guess I was just one of those crazy a•• kids who had to learn things the hard way.”

New York rapper Immortal Technique recently made headlines when his former high school classmate, Lin-Manuel Miranda, revealed on a podcast that the Peruvian-American MC was a bit of a bully when they were teens. When social media began buzzing about the chisme, Miranda took to Twitter to make it clear that there was zero beef between the two. Days later, MSNBC News anchor Chris Hayes, who also went to high school with Miranda and Immortal Technique, appeared on Viceland’s “Desus & Mero” to confirm Miranda’s story.

Immortal Technique finally got a chance to tell his side of the story on Viceland’s “Desus & Mero.” Not only did Immortal Technique explain why he bullied Miranda, he broke down why he believes many troubled youth turn to violence at such an early age.
