Dance With The Devil - Immortal Technique
Been listening to this throwback classic from Immortal Technique a lot recently. It all started with an essay I wrote on Hip-Hop and Shakespeare entitled 'From Hamlet to Hip-Hop: Why Shakespeare is Relevant Today.' Everyone is quick to liken the wordplay of our genre to the influential playwright but less quick to offer up any real textual examples or true comparisons, so I made a rare attempt at combining both my academic and music journalism skills. 'Dance With the Devil' was just one of the tracks I engaged with in the piece and it's been in heavy rotation since then.
