Tech N9ne’s 2013 album Something Else is probably the most growth we’ve seen from Tech over a record. This is coming from someone who was checking for Tech back in the Wake Up Show days, when all he had out was “Planet Rock” before Calm Before The Storm even dropped. Tech can spit like nobody’s business. His label Strange Music has redefined what an independent music label can do and be. He recently signed Murs to his label. He was on the Black Hippy movement before anyone else, when he signed Jay Rock. He continues to evolve which is crazy. This is a man who packs shows like Jay-Z and rocks shows like……I mean like nobody you can imagine. Here we get Tech and Kendrick giving verses providing hope and recognition to the real artists. With !Mayday! and Kendall Morgan vocals on the hook.
