    Immortal TechniqueFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Felipe Andres Coronel (born February 19, 1978), better known by the stage name Immortal

    Technique, is a Peruvian rapper, and an urban activist. He was born in Lima, Peru and raised in

    Harlem, New York.[2]

    Most of his lyrics focus on controversial issues in global politics. The views

    expressed in his lyrics are largely a mixture of socialist commentary on issues such as class

    hierarchy, poverty, religion, government and institutional racism.

    Immortal Technique has voiced a desire to retain control over his production,[3]

    and has stated in

    his music that record companies, not artists themselves, profit the most from mass production and

    marketing of music. He claimed in an interview to have sold close to 200,000 copies of his threeofficial releases.

    children from Kabul.

    This Revolution

    Immortal Technique appeared as himself in a documentary film entitled This Revolution, which was recorded

    during the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York. The tape contains the protests surrounding the

    convention in the form of a documentary. It also featured Viper Records affiliates Akir and producer SouthPaw

    in roles.

    Since then Immortal Technique has taken control of Viper Records and has signed a distribution deal with Babygrande Records / E1 Entertainment to

    vent to their next album. SouthPaw has managed to establish himself as A&R of Viper Records.
