Immortal Technique is an activist and political rapper. Apart from being a revolutionary in his music, he is also noted for his talent as a lyricist and storyteller and has won many rap battles. In many of his songs, he references the strife of poverty in the slums of America and he points blame at politicians to the point of conspiracy theory.
