Testament is a rapper and author as well as an active participant in anti-authoritarian movements in North America. He is one half of Test Their Logik: North America's most widely-known anarchist hip-hop group. They exploded onto the scene in 2010 with their song "Crash the Meeting" which went on to become the theme song and chant of resistance to the G20 summit in their hometown of Toronto that year. They've released a full-length studio album entitled "A" through Crimethinc. and are set to release the follow-up album “Be” in early 2013.
