Immortal Technique, "Dance With the Devil"

Immortal Technique tells the tale of Billy Jacobs to show what happens when you "rape, murder, and sell rock." It's uncomfortable to listen to, not because of his flow, or the Mobb Deep "Survival of the Fittest" and Francis Lai "Love Story" samples, but because by the end, Billy has raped his own mother and committed suicide and Tech stood by and watched it all unfold.
