I know the N9nes. They're a good family. It was a relief to see Tech was OK.

"Tech Nuh-NINE-nez"? But what about Deadmau Five?

I still have a demo cassette of his in a box somewhere. Came into a coffee shop I loitered at, and passed out tapes and stickers. Real fun guys, I recall.

I miss the old street team days. "Follow this link to a free download" ain't the same as "Here's some swag to put on your Trapper Keeper"

I don't understand why there'd be any confusion.

Tech 9 competed in dozens of rap battles for over a decade, facing legends like T-Rex and Arsenal, according to XXL.

PTSD is no joke you can't expect someone that spent a decade in rap battles to just shut that off completely and reenter civilian life without support. Who is looking after our rap battle veterans?

Saw Tech N9ne in November, incredible show, insane moshpit. Glad to hear he's still not dead.

If you'd like to read about it instead of dismissing it with a laugh, here's an article about his work with veterans and the issues of PTSD that he is trying to bring aid to.

He's one of the few rappers I'm sure I'd enjoy seeing.

Hell no.
Tech N9ne is actually talented.
 
2019-03-26 08:32:32 AM  
I will admit that since I'd never heard of Tech 9 and only knew Tech N9ne from the 5FDP cover of "I'm Gonna Knock You Out," I had no clue they were separate people.

Only explanation is that rappers face the same issue as start-up businesses and choose names based on the availability of URLs.

""Condolences to the battle rapper Tech 9," Tech N9ne, 47, "He's been battling for years. I've observed many a battle of his."

I can see why he isn't a trial lawyer...
 
2019-03-26 08:41:21 AM  
He's a rapper. He's going to get shot eventually. It's only a matter of time.

His crappy van almost ran me off the road by Arrowhead Stadium a few years ago.

Wasn't mad though since his song "Slacker" was catchy as hell and getting local airtime back then.

/there was probably a perfectly good explanation for his driving...

I genuinely like that song. twista and busta spit possibly the most complex lines in the song. Even beyond his ability to write lyrics, tech has a really good ear for talent and how to meld those different styles and talent within the same song.

Am I Pyscho, Broken, EBAH i think are really great examples of that.

Tech is one of my favorites. I discovered him through his collaborations. EBAH is great, I also have a soft spot for 'Psycho biatch' as that got me through a breakup with a legit psychopath. Krizz Kaliko is one hell of a discovery by Tech as well, his voice is incredible. He shows it off in "What if it was me?" up above, but my favorite by the two is "Dysfunctional"
