Felipe Coronel (born March 31, 1978), better known as Immortal Technique, is a hip hop artist and political activist. He is also currently the President and A&R of Viper Records.
Many of his songs focus on social justice, covering a wide variety of topics such as:
*urban poverty in the US and international economic inequality (especially in Latin America) *protest against the imprisonment of Mumia Abu-Jamal (who has voiced several interludes for Immortal Technique's music) *militarism and the military industrial complex in the US *media bias in favor of conservative and corporate interests *racism (especially in regards to the mistreatment of people of color in the US)
Although he has been offered a deal with at least one major music label, he has yet to sign with any, over alleged disagreements that they have over the political content of his songs. Immortal Technique has also voiced a desire to keep control over his production, and has made statements in his music that he is very aware that it is record companies, not the artists themselves, who profit the most from mass production and marketing of music.
