“With the twirl of my tongue I encompass worlds and volumes of worlds,” Walt Whitman once wrote. He could have been describing Felipe Andres Coronel, aka Immortal Technique. Born in Lima, Peru, and raised in Harlem, the rapper contains a multitude of influences and contradictions in his work and life. Coronel’s sense of justice was shaped by a stretch in prison that helped him gain perspective, not just about his own violent life but also about the greater world of racism and social inequity around him. One of Immortal Technique’s most chilling parables, “Dance With the Devil,” reads like a horrific short story as an emotionally unmoored narrator realizes he’s beating and raping his own mother, perpetuating a cycle of tragedy. At tonight’s “Viva Mexico” benefit concert, he’s joined by Sick Jacken, Chino XL, Tha Mexakinz, Warporn Industries and veteran Beat Junkies turntablist Mr. Choc.
