The Peruvian born and [[BigApplesauce 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 Music/{{Tonedeff}}.

!!Examples of Tropes in Immortal Technique's work:
* BeingEvilSucks: The main theme of "Dance With the Devil". The protagonist wanted to live out "the ''Film/{{Scarface|1983}}'' fantasy stuck in his brain" and gain the money, power, women and respect [[DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster that can come with being a crime lord]]. He ended up [[spoiler: killing himself after finding out that he ''raped his own mother'' as a gang initiation]]. The song ends with the lines "So when the devil wants to play with you, you better say never / Because the dance with the devil might last you forever".
* BilingualBonus: Some of his lyrics are, perhaps unsurprisingly, in Spanish. "Golpe de estado" is almost entirely in Spanish.
* BoastfulRap: "Obnoxious"
** "Rich Man's World (1%)" is a VillainSong in this vein. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And it is hilarious.]]
** "Peruvian Cocaine" is another, but is not nearly as happy or funny as "Rich Man's World (1%)".
* ClusterFBomb: Not as much as some other hip-hop, but it's still there.
* ConspiracyTheorist: 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 FanDumb.
* CrapsackWorld: "The 3rd World"
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: The protagonist of "Dance With the Devil", after finding out that he just beat and raped his own mother.]]
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: At the end of "Dance With the Devil", the singer turns out to be one of the gangsters in the story and says this:
--> And now the Devil follows me everywhere that I go/In fact, I'm sure he's standing among one of you at my shows
* HiddenTrack: ''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".
* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: In "Dance With the Devil", the protagonist asks a local gang if he can join them. They don't take him seriously just yet, partly due to his lack of reputation but mostly because he once snitched to the cops after getting caught. So they suggest he prove himself by doing something truly cold hearted, such as raping a woman. [[spoiler: He does. And [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone it turns out to be his own mother]]]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: One interpretation of him, he could possibly be an example of GoodIsNotNice or even an especially cynical KnightInSourArmor, or all three.
* MoralEventHorizon: {{Invoked}} in "Dance with the Devil," combined with MyGodWhatHaveIDone.
-->"I'm falling and I can't turn back."
** Also the aptly entitled "Point of No Return."
* PitbullDatesPuppy: Due to the chemistry of their back and forth, many people believe he's dating RT's [[HotScoop Marina]] [[SensualSlavs Portnaya]].
* PoliticalRap: Pretty much every song he's done.
* {{Sampling}}: In addition to the expected sampling from other songs, Tech is also fond of sampling film dialogue to underscore his lyrics. The films he's sampled include ''Film/DeepCover'', ''Film/NewJackCity'', ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Pinocchio}}''.
* ShoutOut: To everything from adult film star Peter North to Egyptian monarch Tutankhamen. Most songs have several of these.
* StartOfDarkness: The whole story of "Dance with the Devil."
* TakeThat: At least [[OnceAnEpisode once a song]]. In fact, a strong case could be made that this trope is the primary reason Tech's music even exists.
* WhamLine: [[spoiler: "'Cause he was staring into the eyes of his own mother."]]
