Tech N9ne Talks New Album, Praises Kanye West

Tech N9ne talks about his upcoming album and his love for Kanye West.

Colorado Springs TV recently caught up with Tech N9ne while he was performing at the Black Sheep as a part of his Hostile Takeover Tour. During the interview, Tech revealed that he has already begun working on his next solo album. Althought eh Kansas City legend didn't reveal much information about the project, he said that he's selected close to 18 beats that may appear on the final product.

"I'm just getting beats for it now," he revealed. "I've got like 18 beats to choose, I think. I kinda lost track."

Tech also talked about Kanye West's 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. He explained that Kanye's approach to his music not only reaffirmed his belief that music is a canvas, but it also proved to him that their are no limitations in

"That Kanye album [My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy]…made me know that there are no limitations ; you can do anything to the beat," he said. "To have a song and have instrumentals going and then Rick Ross just pops up at the end of the song and busts a clean-ass verse, that let me know that you can do anything on your canvas. I was just so proud of that, man. Like, fuck everybody, I dig Kanye. He just takes chances and that's what I love…fuck everybody, do music."

    I miss the F.T.I. Tech that hardly gave praises to any artists.

  • bizzalls

    haha, wow....MBDTF was absolute garbage. I don't know what everyone is talking about. That album sucked a fat donkey dick.

    • bizzalls

      Watch out before you get slapped talkin to me like that homo. That's the reason I didn't like the album: The production! Shit was horrible compared to his other releases you idiot! Album sucks and so does your mother.

    • Im your fuckin father

      absolute garbage? are you fucking dumb? that album was easily one of the greatest produced albums put out in the last 10+ years. Kanyes creativty and originality is unmatched today but your probably to clueless to comprehend that. Go back and listen to the albums instrumentals, layering, beats, etc and hopefully you'll realize this. you are no different then one of those brainless lil wayne fans who somehow like listening to lil wayne mumble garbage over some generic beat...go fuck yourself ass-clown

    tech n9ne's flow is faster than twista's its insane how he ryhmes and how he puts words together "Narcissistic, hard to grip it Dark and wicked, art's prolific Mars with the stars, this is far lifted Lyrics, quit the bar with it, scriptures are terrific"

  • Count Melancholy

    rjd2 was the first to have a long instrumental and then have a rapper come in minutes later on 'june'. kanye didn't originate anything.

    • Duke Depression

      What the fuck are you going on about? He wasn't literally talking about a rapper coming in minutes after a song has started, he was talking about artistic vision, you numbnut.

  • Jaymalls

    MBDTF influenced about half the industry... Not only rappers! I'm just glad that rappers like Tech9ne are ok with admitting they were influenced and/or proud of their peers work. +1 for the culture!

    • gbu

      STOP REPLYING TO THIS STUPID CUNT THATS WHY HE KEEPS COMING BACK

    • bizzalls

      He's not blowing up because of Lil Wayne you fuckin idiot. He's had a solid fanbase for years and years and he continues to grow. You must be proud of yourself. You're a fan of two of the wackest and fakest cliques in the game. DUmb fuck.

    • YESSIR

      JUST CALLED TECH A LIAR SOME FAN YOU ARE I BET YOU NEVER EVEN BEEN TO A SHOW OF HIS LIKE I HAVE

    • casper21

      Tech, just like any other artist that's been grinding out his success over a long period of time is just playing politics. A co-sign from Wayne means nothing. Do you really think that even a single YMCMB fan owns even a single Tech record, even after the co-sign...no. Tech's numbers are what they have been in the past, nothing earth-shattering. The difference is that main stream artists are starting to recognize him for his skills and coming to him for guest verses and cameos. He's got some buzz behind him, and he keeps doing these 90 shows in 90 days type tours that the industry is forced to respect cuz nobody else can handle that type of schedule. Tech is on a new level right now because he worked his way there, its not attributable to a co-sign from anyone, even if he says it is.

      ... but wayne still a gay ass fag

    • YESSIR

      WAYNE COSIGN TOOK HIM TO ANOTHER LEVEL EVEN TECH SAID THAT

    • gimik313

      saying tech n9ne has only blown up cus of the wayne cosign is stupid. tech was doin things for years....n a tour called wicked wonka with icp put him on the scene hard. he started touring harder after that n yeah THATS what got him elevated to get noticed. not the actual cosign. it was the work hes put in before that.

    • YESSIR

      ^WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? DO YOU DISAGREE WITH ANYTHING I SAID?

      Do you have any life whatsoever? The idea of putting on a troll outfit every fucking day just seems tiresome and boring. Do you even find it fun any more? Or is it like a 9-5 now?
