Music: Immortal Technique
The Peruvian born and Harlem raised Felipes Andres Coronel is better known by his stage name, Immortal Technique. Extraordinarily political, Immortal Technique is completely independent rapper known for his outspoken lyrics, dense wordplay and well-spoken activism. He's been known to collaborate with Tonedeff.

Examples of Tropes in Immortal Technique's work:

  • Boastful Rap: "Obnoxious"
    • "Rich Man's World (1%)" is a Villain Song in this vein. And it is hilarious.
    • "Peruvian Cocaine is another but, is not nearly as happy or funny as Rich Man's World (1%)
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Just...Listen to some of his songs.
    • In interviews he's expressed disbelief in a 9/11 conspiracy and stated that he doesn't believe all the conspiracies he raps about. Apparently he mentions them to get people thinking about "Other possibilities". YMMV if this is a good excuse or just leads to Fan Dumb.
  • Crapsack World: "The 3rd World"
  • Doing It for the Art: Has rejected many offers made by major record labels, as he says in "Freedom Of Speech".
  • Hidden Track: The 3rd World has at least two, one at the end of the album as one would expect and one hidden in the gap before the first song begins (rewind from the first song to hear it, although not all CD players will support this). If you count tracks merged in at the end of songs that aren't at the end of albums as hidden tracks, there is a third hidden track on The 3rd World after "Hollywood Driveby" and another on Revolutionary Vol. 1 after "Dance with the Devil".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: One interpretation of him, he could possibly be an example of Good Is Not Nice or even an especially cynical Knight in Sour Armor, or all three.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Invoked in "Dance with the Devil," combined with My God, What Have I Done?.
    "I'm falling and I can't turn back."
    • Also the aptly entitled "Point of No Return."
  • Pitbull Dates Puppy: Due to the chemistry of their back and forth, many people believe he's dating RT's Marina Portnaya.
  • Political Rap: Pretty much every song he's done.
  • Start of Darkness: The whole story of "Dance with the Devil."
