Felipe Coronel, aka Immortal Technique, is an Afro-Peruvian rapper based in Harlem. He also considers himself an activist, and claims
that he looks “at things much more in perspective as to how they relate to history”. As a descendant of indigenous Peruvians, one of his more common themes is injustice in South America. He sees globalization as a negative force, one that tends to weaken the power of the economically disadvantaged. In fact, his views are quite socialistic.
