Tech N9ne "E.B.A.H." EP Cover Art

UPDATE: Tech N9ne plots his upcoming EP, due September 18th.

Tech N9ne has been collaborating with heavyweights over the past few years, recently linking with Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne. For his fourteenth studio album E.B.A.H., the Strange Music leader hopes to link with Rick Ross, Eminem and Nas, telling AHH that he's got a track titled "Heaven and Hell" on reserve for the Maybach Music Group boss.

"Hopefully we can make it happen. Same thing with [Eminem]," he said. "I’ve got an idea for Em and I’m trying to make it happen and if he thinks I’m good enough to do a song with then it’ll happen.”

Tech also has records on reserve for Talib Kweli, Marsha Ambrosius, Waka Flocka Flame and Roscoe Dash. He addressed criticism that he's selling out, but he justifies that he's staying true to his artistry.

"The mainstream is gonna go Tech, motherfucker. The real shit always shines,” he continued. “I know I’m not popular enough for everybody and Hip-Hop is a popularity contest. I’m not going to go above and beyond to be the most popular if my lyrics can’t speak for me.”

UPDATE: Tech N9ne has revealed the cover art for his upcoming E.B.A.H. EP, which will feature 816 Boyz, Krizz Kaliko and JL B.Hood. Pre-order here, and check out the artwork below (via HHNM).

    "His actual studio album, full length 24 track album is coming out I believe october 30" That's the same day Ja's double album drops, with 50 tracks. Don't sleep on dude cause he's making license plates right now.

  • johnny blaze

    kinda pumped but common tech...rick ross, waka flaka flame and roscoe dash...just to let u know tech, im gonna fast forward through those guys verses, ive heard enough to know they cannot come up with a good song for the life of em...on the other hand, hes got nas, eminem, and talib kweli (hopefully) ..never been so pumped and dissapointed for an album at the same time

    His actual studio album, full length 24 track album is coming out I believe october 30, the EP is EBAH is not the album. He has not released the title for it yet.

  • casper21

    to my understanding there is an LP on the way, saw him give an interview recently and he's planning it for a late fall release, November or something. He hasn't even begun recording the album yet, he's just collecting beats for it and deciding who he'd like to collab with for certain ideas for songs. This is just to tie people over, keep the momentum going like Klusterfuck.

  • So Icy Boi!

    wack. diz nigga got killed by Weezy 2 times. he needs to retire. nobody likes diz fast rap anymore. amateur. swag

    Hip Hop is a culture of Bottom Feeders, Tech worked hard by himself with no record company behind him, built himself into a million dollar success story, so naturally the fans want to hate on him for it. Only way to make people happy is to be a loser. Want people to stop hating on you, just never win at anything, always fail. People like you when your going nowhere

    • Stooby Gacks

      Amen dude. Thank you for acknowledging someone with true talent, who has gone through the closest thing on Earth to Hell, and back.

    TECH NIZZZZIIIIINNNEEEEE!!!! Kind of bummed its just an EP though... Was anticipating a full-length

  • Hi

    Please don't judge him before he's even released the album, he's a brilliant rapper who's probably going to bring these mainstream guys into his world, it WILL NOT be generic crap this is Tech N9ne after all

  • Anonymous

    i dont care who he collabos with Tech brings this rappers in his own world and he choose what track he wants them to be in.

  • RandomGuy

    rick ross?! wacka flocka flame?! roscoe dash?! tech is about to become a real sellout no matter what excuses he invents. and yes, i am a real fan. a real fan is in for the music he has fallen in love with and for the artist that makes this music. a real fan doesnt support bad development of the artists music just for the artist to get more recognition and money. tech knows these guys suck yet he still wants to work with them pretending theyre coming after him. this makes me sad like seriously. fans who tell me im not a real fan because i dont support him in making more money are dumb as fuck cause like i said im in for the music and for techs crazy image. not to support his bak account no matter what... at least eminem, nas and talib kweli are good... but to be honest im not really looking forward to this album. if at least just picked ONLY popular people who are actually capable of making good music like busta rhymes, e-40, yelawolf, twista, snoop dogg, xzibit, eminem, crooked i, chamillionaire, bun b, wyclef jean, eminem, nas, jay-zi would totally support that. all those are big names in the game that could help him to get more than enough recognition and could even enrich his music but he decides to collaborate with horrible, untalented douches too... i just dont get it. you know it better tech, i know you do! still much love from germany and strange all day all night til this date no rappers have dropped anything as incredible as the strangers so i hope to get to hear more of this quality music without it being crossbred with "mainstream garbage" and i hope anyone actually reads this lol BYE

    • Stooby Gacks

      I personally can't speak for Tech, but still; don't knock it until you try it. He's had plenty of mainstream rappers in his songs, and they're still good at the very least.

    • Anonymous

      I agree, at first I did not like it but then I thought, FUCK THAT, if he gets collabs like that then it shows "mainstream garbage" fans what hot shit tech lays down is like. Its the only way they will experience it. If it helps tech achieve even more things that no independent rap artist has than he can go for it. tech you have my support, even if its with rappers I absolutley despise I want to see you MURK 'em

    • ETK

      You may be a real fan but you're also a close-minded one He's getting some wack rappers on an EP, one of the 500 EPs he's released. Is that gonna kill you? And how the fuck can you sellout through a god damn mixtape? God

  • john

    idgaf who tech collabs with but it bugs the fuck out of me when hes "hoping" to collab with ppl like wocka n rick ross like hes lucky to, when hes so far above all of those garbage rappers, quit worrying about your collabs and focus on YOUR music tech...

  • Cloudwalker

    Why the fuck does it matter who hes doing songs with. you know dam well if you came here and read the shit watched the video you like tech n9ne and any song no matter who its with your gonna listenin to and if you like it your gonna like fuck whos on the song with tech. you know you love techs music stop hating and show some support.

    When you think about, Rick Ross is not a horrible rapper, he's better than Wayne is now. It doesn't really matter who he works with, he's simply gonna murder them in every way possible, and Eminem knows that.

  • Anonymous

    "GUARDED" don't think so buddy after doing songs with garbage artists like niki Minaj, lil Wayne,drake, and b.o.b" Wayne is the #1 rapper in the world, and NM is generating millions for mainstream hip hop. Makes total sense for Em to work with them. Tech has talent, but face it, he's forever underground, and Em's fanbase isn't. Now your bitch ass will probably fire back how Tech did a song with Wayne. Wayne works with everybody. Em doesn't.

  • Anonymous

    "they was already gonna colab on all 6s and 7s but his album released before got back from tour" Are Eminem's manager? Didn't think. Shut the fuck up and face the fact Eminem didn't want to do the song in the first place. If he wanted too, he would have recorded his verse and sent it to Tech.

    "I'm glad he doesn't want to work with Jay-Z" Jay would lyrically murder him, then bring him back to life just to murder him a second time.

    I've been a fan of Tech N9NE since Everready. I've loved everything he's put out. People were freaking out about his track with T-Pain and Lil Wayne, and it came out well. Tech didn't get to where he is by being what he was told to be, why do people who call themselves his fans want him to be?

  • fuck

    rick ross? really? who's next? katy perry?

  • ETK

    if he loses some sensitive fans because he collabos with one wack nigga then maybe Tech could do without them fans seriously, it's one song. I'm tired of rabid fans jumping at the "sellout" finger pointing when a rapper reaches out to someone less talented than him. if he ever did collab with Waka, it's one song you're gonna forget about in a couple of weeks. don't go and treat it as some fuckin turning point for Tech n9ne's career. he got Lil Wayne and T-Pain on his 6&7s album. did you guys have a heart attack then? smh

      for nas to be scared of competition he sure has collaborated with great rappers in the past...common, nearly all of wu-tang, AZ, jay-z, DMX, mobb deep,game, luda, kool g rap, scarface, q-tip, busta rhymes and thats not even close to them all. He has probably collaborated with more talented rappers than your favourite rapper.

      Your dumb as fuck the reason nas has alot of wack features is cus everyones scared to work with him. He wanted eminem and jay for his new album both were "too busy"
