Tech N9ne Explains His Verse On Jay Rock's "Kill Or Be Killed"

The Strange Music honcho shares his thought process in letting it all out.

On his feature on Jay Rock’s cut “Kill or Be Killed,” Tech N9ne addresses anyone who puts the blame on him for Mac Dre's passing taking place on his home turf. In an interview with, the Kansas City, Missouri native, who bigs up Mac Dre during all of his performances and has relationships with his family, explains what prompted him to record the track.

“Jay Rock done pulled it out of me because I heard his verse about ‘It’s a homicidal life’ and ‘the doctor’s are trying to save you’ and this that or the other,” he recalled. “It just put me in the mind frame that I wanted to talk about something real–something that irks me: me being a good guy, why these demons keep knocking on my door, playing with me, when I have nothing to do with nothing shady?

“I don’t want to fight nobody!” he continued. “I don’t want to have no friction with nobody but you will not disrespect me as a man. When you disrespect me as a man…I gotta show you. I don’t want to…but I will, and that’s what that verse is talking about.”

      I agree. Admittedly. When I heard of Tech N9ne I was like, this dude is wack and I'm not feeling that horrorcore shit. But now, now that I know he's not like the rest of them. That just say some morbid masochist shit to sound sadistic and hard But has actual reasons as to why? Now I'm all for it. You got guys like Wolf Gang that say some sadistic shit with no sociological reason . This dude is doing his thing and can back it up. Unapologetically. Props to Tech N9ne.

    i love how people try and hate on Tech and speak like they know. All it shows is that you dont know shit lol. And Tech was doing real rock collabs late 90's early 2000's, when Wayne was a kid. Plus come on man, Tech had the Deftones on his new album, real rock legends.
