Tech N9ne Says He Wants To Work With Eminem & Rick Ross

Eminem and Rick Ross top the list of artists Tech N9ne wants to work with the most.

With over a dozen projects under his belt and ten-plus years in the game already, Tech N9ne has managed to establish himself as go-to collaborator for a number of Hip Hop's hottest icons. Now, in a recent interview with Montreality, Tecca Nina reveals who tops his list of artists with whom he wants to work.

Tech gave a very eclectic number of hope collaborators, ranging from Cee-Lo Green to rock groups like the Doors and System of a Down. The two biggest hopefuls that Tech mentioned on his list, however, are Rick Ross and Eminem.

"I always wanted to do [a song] with Eminem, 'cus I wanna hear myself with who I deem the best lyricist that I've heard - that's one big one," he said. "I was just playing System of a Down, I love their music. I always wanted to do a song with the Doors…those are some of the people that I would work with. Cee-Lo Green, Rick Ross - hate on Rick Ross all you want, the nigga can rap, fuck y'all. I've heard him go from good to better to damn good to better than damn good. I've heard him do it."

Check out the full interview below.

    Eminem doesn't want to work with you Tech. It's obvious. Maybe Ross will if you promise to buy him lunch after.

Plus doesn't help much that everyone here in the 303 who likes Tech is either 11-18 year old white kids or its these electro-fans who think Tech is true hip hop......yikes never did like this guy.

      ^^ Define true hip hop.

    • ETK

      why do you care who likes a rapper? people like you are what's wrong with hip-hop, tryna categorize a rapper's fanbase like some punk blog analyst. fyi, Tech is true hip-hop

  • JustSayin

    hes been sayin he wanted to work with eminem forever, just seems like shady doesnt care... but now rick ross lmfao tech became waynes biggest nut hugger and now he wants ross too lmao dude sold out

    • Cudder

      just sayin... you're a retard. Tech is wayne's biggest nut hugger? since when? you probably caught feelings cause he dropped a verse on C4 and had Wayne on his album, boo-hoo... he didn't sold out, you're the close-minded one

  • BoomBox

    When legendary rappers said something like that I feel the world is about to explode. I remember the first time. KRS said greatest rapper alive about lil wayne and lil wayne was there. I was shock. I really hate KRS cuz of this. Then busta made collaboration with YMCMb and said many good things about them. Now Tech N9ne. Em is great no doubt! But Rick Ross! C'mon man don't do this to us!

  • Young Lou

    TECH should have more REGIME niggaz on his next one. Now that's what I'm waiting for cause his newer music seems like its missing that fire from the past

    One nigga that doesn't work with nowadays so-called "R&B artists". Now that's a progress.

    Why is Tech name dropping half the industry now? Smacks of desperation to cross over.

  • Hi

    Why Rick Fraud of all people, he does nothing but promote himself, even on Accident Murderers his verse had nothing to do with the topic

  • Deborah

    Eminem- fine. Rick Ross?! Rick Ross?! Talk about low aspirations! What can Rick bring to a track that will make it stand out? NOTHING! He is nothing but a loud yob who favours loud repetitive production to cover the fact that his rhymes are genric and lifeless. Stick with Eminem, man.

  • Fuck Kansas City

    How many times did Tech say he wants to work with Em??? Give up, nigga. He's scared to work with you.

  • LEGENDBOY

    Just to spark off something, who do you think Tech should work with?

  • Anonymous

    Sorry Tech , Eminem only works with wack rappers & pop artists for the moment like wayne & Pink , sincerly Paul Rosenburg

  • RICK ROSS

    most of these rappers aint real niggas. Word, Nas bankrupt never was a drug runner, Lil Wayne aint no blood, Jeezy aint no BMF, 50 a snitch, Game a stripper, 2pac a ballerina. None of these niggas real you guys. If they was all real they all be dead now. Like it or not Ross is the new biggie. ME AND TECH NINE LAST REAL NIGGAS IN THE GAME

    • Deborah

      So you are saying that these rappers named are less credible because they did things you think aren't 'black'? This is stupidity on a scale not seen before. Drug running does not make you real o cool- its a CRIME. You end up in JAIL for it. Not so cool then, wasting half your life rotting in a cell. The price of being a REAL nigga, eh?

  • Anonymous

    idk if u guys know but techs actually has a song comin up on his lp next year i believe, with a Doors feature. Im not talkin bout a sample, im talking bout with the remaining members, and an unheard Jim Morrison Verse.

  • The_Observer

    Rick Ross can flow not Rap....his english is not creative nor does it make sense...nigga always talking about his money, cars & bitches...like DMX, how much can you really talk about such things?

    • Abel

      "Rick Ross can flow... not rap". I think you've got it right, man.

    • BPSN

      Obviously you don't know shit about DMX. DMX was the nigga version of Eminem. He would talk about cold blooded shit like rapin someone daughter in front of them and killin them both. DMX was one of the pioneers of that dark, sadistic, too gangsta rap lol and he was way more lyrical and deep than rick ross

  • Anonymous

    Tech has always shown Ross love Just a little Nerdy history lesson for you, back in 2006 Tech executive produced the soundtrack for that movie "Alpha Dog" and he put "Everyday I'm Hustlin" on there. So its not as if he just decided he liked Ross yesterday or some shit

  • Anonymous

    Rick Ross is good at what he does like it or not. Scarface was never any kind of lyrical miracle ass nigga but he got it done his own way. Ross makes great records if your into Southern Gangsta Rap. Yeah, we all know he was a security guard or whatever, but he has an impeccable ear for beats and does what he does well. Nice to see an Underground legend like Tech acknowledge that

    • Kilz

      ^ You dont know shit you are clearly the kiddie hahah trying to say rick ross is good.. you dont know real hip hop rick ross cant rap and hes a fake he raps about fake shit. how the fuck do you think that is talented. nigga dont even compare to Eminem or tech. only thing nigga has is fame and maybe a little record saleds but in real life hes not a artist he is not real

      ^^^ Point flew right over your head I guess. Figures people would be to stupid to see the point, this is HHDX after all. I need to get up from the kiddie table lol

    Tech N9ne listens to System of a Down and the Doors? I'm impressed.

    • Blaine

      Check out the song "Rock N Roll Nigga" a bonus track from All 6's And 7's. He talks about growing up on rock and rap, and says he named his "gangsta rap label after the Doors," Strange Music after The Doors' song "Strange Days."

  • Angryhoosier

    what kind of numbers would an em-tech collabos album do?

  • Ricky Rozay

    Niggas keep hatin. an underground legend like tech nine wants to work with Rozay. Yall bitch made niggas can keep makin ur old cop jokes but this proves Ross one of the hottest MCs in the game. Keep hatin, Rozay still collectin his money. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      you truly are a lost cunt, rick ross stole his identity of the real drug dealer rick ross,he has no talent, some one like kendrick lamar would be best in the games (thats out of the young people ofcourse)

    Once again TECH and its in general another time Em is deemed the best. stupid ass haters gonna hate

    I love that tech n9ne gave rick ross the credit he deserve. Just because you don't like ross doesn't mean everybody dislike ross. I wish drake gets the credit he deserve too.

    That would be great. He can compete with his idol and he can renegade the drug lord kingpin.

    Love tecca nina, despise that he wants to work with a phony that lied after being exposed and continues his facade to even a higher degree today.

  • Yo

    I know for fact that Eminem is dope, but Ross?? Lol Tech must be high.

  • anon

    Tech is dope on the mic, but outside his music he's a complete idiot. He will literally work with anyone. Probably wants to collab with Soulja Boy. He's mad smart on the mic, but when he gets to talking normally, wow.

      ^alex just cause a nigga posts anonymous doesnt mean he feels entitled. thats the default name, its not like he was telling rappers how to conduct business and manage their careers and passing judgments like anon.

      you just mad that his tastes dont coincide with yours. get over it you over protective over sensitive fanboy. he likes people you dont like there so he is an idiot. bloggers have the worse sense of entitlement. sitting behind your computer makes you overly judgmental.

    just because ross doesnt force 50 rhymes and syllables every 2 bars doesnt make him non lyrical

  • Anonymous

    Rick Ross "better then damn good" are you joking Tech? His flow is really basic..... his lyrics are improving I'll give him that but they still aren't really impressive. Tech should know what talent is, considering he's arguably the most talented rapper ever (I put him #2 behind Eminem personally)

    • Anonymous

      tech n9ne and ross are both wack in their own ways. honestly i'd probably listen to ross over tech cause he has good beats at least. tech doesn't even have that.

    • Jed

      umm.. because tech n9ne has mad talent and is an incredible rapper but rick ross is a bum.. thats why

    • Anonymous

      This sound like more of your opinion then a fact. What is wrong with him wanting to work with ross. It's his rap career and he could rap with whoever he wants too.

    more and more and more dickriding (except em)

      Because we ALL KNOW ROSS IS AN INDUSTRY NIGGA!!! He aint real he just FAKE!!! How can you cosign a guy that lies more than Mitt Romney???
