Tech N9ne's delivery harkens to Kool G Rap's crazed flow and Kool Keith's off-kilter timing, making Gates as unique and wild a listen as ever.

From his dark lyrical content to his madcap costumes and face paint, Missouri heavyweight Tech N9ne is one of the most explosive rappers to grace the independent scene, ever. Ironically, as shocking a rapper as Tech can be, the most surprising aspect about his latest "Collabos" album, The Gates Mixed Plate, is the riotous party-hardy content. Unfortunately, the album lives up to its name in more ways than anticipated as it proves to be a mixed plate of riotous hits and uninspired strip club anthems.

Tech N9ne is a ferocious lyricist, barking out frantic bars taut with internal polysyllabic rhymes. While many rappers seem to let their lyrics almost fall into place, Tecca Nina sounds as if every single word is painstakingly calibrated to perfectly fit his staccato enunciation. While the technical grace of his rhymes is stunning in its own right, the most important facet of his craft is that he can make such meticulously crafted style sound so effortless and organic. On the album’s stand-out track “O.G.,” Tech frenetically bounces over a sparse and funky beat, spitting, “Got on my 501’s and my gritter posture / I fit her proper / If she papered I'm in her choppers / Letting her know this Nina dinner cost her / And I'm finna squash her / So animal like somebody better get her doctor.” Tech N9ne’s delivery harkens to Kool G Rap’s crazed flow and Kool Keith’s off-kilter timing, making Gates as unique and wild a listen as ever.


This album proves is a complete 180 from last year’s K.O.D., finding Tech eschewing the sinister subject matter for more party-oriented themes. Tech details the shift in subject matter on “Harvey Dent” as he raps about wanting to move away from the “the paint and the evil frown” in favor of “be[ing] at the party bent listening to Parliament.” For most of the time, Gates does in fact sound like a party as Tech seems to revel in rhyming about money (“F U Pay Me”), women (“Gamer”), success (“What’s Next” and “Oh You Didn’t Know”), barbeque joints (“O.G.”) and of course, his favorite mixed drinks (“KC Tea”).

Of course, since Gates is the third installment in his "Collabos" album series, Tecca Nina brings along a bevy of guest artists for the ride. In addition to the numerous worthy features from Strange Music alum Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Kalhoun and Big Scoob,  Watts' Jay Rock joins the Missouri Rap staple on the grind with “Paper” , while Glasses Malone backs up Tech as he takes on the Rap game with “Keep It One Hunit” . Yet perhaps the album’s best collaboration comes from Devin The Dude on “Afterparty,” as his laidback manner perfectly contrasts Tech’s rapid-fire delivery.

As the Gates comes to a close however, the party antics start to die down and the head-splitting hangover hits in full effect. Clocking in a 21 songs, the album loses steam towards the end as the sex-fueled party anthems pile up at an alarming rate and the bass heavy production plods along. Songs like “Too Many Girls,” “Far Out,” “Loud” and the unfortunate Techno-esque bonus “Doin’ It” belabor the fist-pumping point, while “Jumpin’ Jax” saps the sex appeal out of the strip club as Tech by trying to get one unlucky lady “…in the position of a pap smear.” Gates hits its low point on the mush-mouth sex anthem “Pu Wah Wah,” as Tech and company somehow manages to one-up Nas’ “Oochie Wally” with their incoherent jibber-jabber.

In addition, the album’s production proves to be a fairly stagnant affair as one muddy, crunk-lite beat segues into the next with very little distinction. While tracks like “F U Pay Me” and “Oh You Didn’t Know” make good use of the heavy drums and loud synth formula, others like “Far Out,” Loud” and “Pow Pow” don’t fare as well. Despite fairly weak array of beats, tracks like “O.G.,” “Harvey Dent” and “Need More Angels” provide a breath of fresh air with the latter of the three songs opting for a lighter sound that perfectly closes out the mess that preceded it.

Despite a number of top-notch tracks, The Gates Mixed Plate burdened by a heaping of second-rate stripper anthems and boring production. Although Gates is meant to be a celebration, the album ultimately plays out like The Hangover and somewhere down the line, Tecca Nina gets lost in the fun that he and his listeners are supposed to be having.

    You do realize Pu Wah Wah was performed as 816 Boyz which are a mainstream parody group

  • Ben

    fire. absolute fire. haters cant touch tech.

  • DL Dub

    Oh and you can't tell me that KC Tea, and Loud aren't songs that are guilty of shaking people's houses

  • DL Dub

    After listening to this constantly for the past month, I cannot deny this Album anything less than 5 stars. This shit rocks, and it's kind of because Tech has drifted away from his usual shit. Like the nigga said on Harvey Dent, if you don't like his new shit, buy his old shit. There's only 1 completely skippable track on this (Pu Wah Wah) and 1 ehhhh. As far as I know, that's 1 consistent ass album

  • Raul Ugalde

    Idk what all yall saying for real. I mean this is not Tech's best work but its still fire tho. Yall just mad cause his moving away from evil tone of music he normally makes.

    • kush_blowa

      forreal. listen to the first lines of "Harvey Dent" on this album: "they want madness/ anghellic and sadness/ fans relish when gladness is damned, devilish and ashes.." people just see him and his raps as dark all the time. but they dont see the other hits he can put out, and just because theyre unique they dont like it. thats why his labels STRANGE music.

  • zonedout559

    • Dub_Es

      dude, i really hope you get hit by a car or something, you're more annoying that REAL#1STAN with this shit

  • LocToThaBrain

    im a huge Tech fan but honestly i do think this is one of the worst hes put out. But people arent realizing that the whole point of Tech doing these COLLABO albums is to let other unknown artist from KC a chance to shine. As always Tech kills every track. Most of the hooks are really weak tho. This album is complete trash next to the last two (M.L.K, Sickology 101) but Techs next solo album All 6's and 7's hopefully wont have such a mainstream sound. Far Out and Need More Angels are by far the best tracks on the album. You can tell Tech was just trying to have fun on this album and switch it up but he could of made this album much better. M.L.K is for sure the best Collabos hes put out...

  • JUST A MAN

    @ Em fan #1, Em by far is the most overated rapper of all time. MMLP/SSLP was his best album of all time and it fell short of being a classic. Eminems succsess is behind his skin colour, I've always said that. The people from the ghetto's of America aren't the big buyers and big spenders, they are more likely to bootleg albums. The suburban kids who are prodimetely white are the ones that will cop that shit. The majority know little about hip hop. Eminem does to kinds of songs. Good ones and ones he decides to sing on. His voice(singing voice) is terrible and every time he tries to sing it makes me want to pull my ear drums out. With that said he's one of the dopesest lyricists in the game and has some of the meanest world play. He's just loved to much by people who don't even care for hip hop.

    • fucku

      you have some good points...i think his singing sucks...i think he has a bad ear for beats too... but i dunno if he's the most overrated... I think his skin color does make him more successful...but i would also say that biggie and pac got bumped up on the greatest of all time list because of their tragic deaths. I mean look at it this way...their is not one person in the rap game that wants to beef with EM as far as diss recoreds... i mean besides bums who are just looking for publicity...im talking legit rappers

    • junkie

      real fuckin talk right here.. em is insane but most of his fans dont know hiphop infact i see alot of comments on youtube like "i dont like rap but eminem is my favourite he is the best rapper!!" nuff said

  • Em fan #1

    Tech is nowhere near Eminem's level Eminem is the greatest rapper ever. I think that classic Recovery basically cemented him WAY ABOVE Biggie and Pac. Biggie only had two albums, one a masterpiece the other over rated as shit. Pac never had a classic, all his albums have been good but no classics. Eminem has FOUR classics. You can't deny MMLP, SSLP, Eminem Show and Recovery are classics. He has the perfect flow, he does things with words every other rapper only dream of doing and he an make a song about shitting and it'll be a hit. Hell Ass Like That was one of the best club songs ever because Eminem's perfect flow. Another thing is that Eminem is willing to put his shit out there. If I were a rapper and I had issues with my family or relationship problems, I wouldn't talk about it and if I did I would be vauge. If Em has a problem with someone he'd call them out including his bitch ass momma, no good daddy and slut of an ex-wife. If there was a religion based on rappers, Eminem would be the Christianity AND Islam of the rap world. He is the only rapper that can sell millions without promotion. Face it, Eminem is THE BEST RAPPER EVER and all the facts point to it. Flow, lyrics, storytelling, success, fan base, following, concepts, Em has it all. I'll even go one step futhur, Eminem is so good MOST people who get into rap get into it because of Eminem. Hell Eminem is the only rapper to scare suburban white parents because his lyrics are so powerful and influential.

    • Marz_@ttacks

      @EM FAN - You need to pull slim shady out your mouth and grow up a little bit. Its great to see that he still has loyal fans, but it's unfortunate that he has fans as simple as you. The title "the best ever" is personal opinion and the only way he could stand a chance at being close to the top was if we talked about album sales. JUST A MAN

    • Em fan #1

      if he sales one copy then he's NOT FUCKING DOPE! Dope rappers can actually get the publics attention. Not boring ass nobodies you dumb shit

    • BAM12393

      Please shut your f*cking mouth! Rip out your keyboard and beat your own ass with it. Eminem is the most overrated rapper. Recovery is far from classic. I can honestly say Recovery is the most OVERRATED album of ALL TIME. It gets way too much praise. I can tell you don't know sh*t about rap because you talk about how many album sales Eminem gets with out promotion. Who really gives a f*ck? If a rapper is dope then he is dope. I don't give a f*ck if he sells 1 copy.

  • fatboyrule

    For those of you rating this less than 4 stars, listen to the album more than once!

  • Brandon Mills

    I believe with this album Tech N9ne just wanted to go in a different direction an try something new. For whatever reason he chose He simply wanted to bring something new, fresh, and stylish to the table. Tech's worked hard over the years to make his Strange Music become the Number one independent label in the world and put Kansas City if not all of Kansas on the map, as well as allowing other artists to emerge and bring the KC and midwest rap scene to the forefront. I too as a technician and Strange Music fan was a lil shocked in the change of pace and sound but the party songs and the strip club anthems kinda reminded me of his Absolute power days. It took me a couple times to listen to the whole album to see if I was really going to like it or not. An actually in all truth I think the album is just another step forward for Tech N9ne. My favorite Tracks are Jumpin Jax, Loud, an KC Tea. I also like Kutt Calhouns verse on Pow pow. I give this a 5 star rating because of the production an the lyrics. Tech said he was going to bring a lighter mood to the table and be more party with it and just like Big Scoob on Monsterifik. Tech N9ne defintely was going to "Bring it to the table". For Everybody else's opinion, Well.......SORRY N SHIT!

    • NV ME

      Hey man I agree with everything you sayin, he went a different way with his music this time around and thats what people dont get! he wasnt going for another Killer where every track hit hard or even MLK or sickology101 he wanted a fun cd, you know some club bangers and some bass shakers, i think he did it this way to reach a new fan base, he knows his loyal fans wont leave him over a collabos especially when his next solo is suppose to be practically a god send, o and btw he is from Kansas City Missouri not Kansas just want to help you out on that one..peace!

  • BIG FACE ITALY

    Dude is really on point. Nice!!! Hip hop is doing well. Too many girls ...great track. Had a great time seeing him in Amsterdam.

  • THE REAL#1STAN

    what a fuckin pile of shit, worst Tech n9ne CD ever...smh EMINEM RECOVERY IN STORES NOW!@#$%

    • FuK_Haterz

      You're right about one thing, no one can handle the recovery, because it makes my fucking ears bleed...I would rather here Tech's worst album than hear anything from eminem...stop masturbating to eminem and and kill yourself because it's dumbshits like you who make wack ass rappers millionaires....Changing the subject, Tech is sick as fuck. This album is a little weird at first but its cuz im not use to hearing this side of Tech...but fuck it ive been listening to his shit since it first came out and as long as he puts shit out I will always be a loyal fan...I like how Tech is doing him, and anyone that dont like it the fuck'em! TECH 9!

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      I know more about hip-hop then you ever will bitch. Go suck a hairy dick. You cant handle Recovery...go ahead and listen to this bitch ass Tech CD

    • BONKEIRA

      Tech N9NE's the shit you fuckin' retard. And everybody's allready got Recovery you moron. Do you really think you're telling somebody something new? "I'M STAN, COP RECOVERY DUDE! i WAS THE FIRST TO HEAR IT!" You're a fuckin clown and you don't know anything about hiphop

  • hello kitty nikei

    I LOVE the new Tech cd!!! The beats hit hard! And the production level is top notch!! Tech and his crew rep K.C. to the fullest like I do!! K.C. Girl for life!! Doin' it is THE HOTTEST TRACK on the CD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (nice chorus OME ;-)!!!!!

  • kcteasipper

    i dont know what cd this guy was listening to, but the whole mixed tape is a feel good album and i love the change up. and songs like LOUD and FAR OUT are about the best songs on the album. good features. JL was murder on far out and Alan Wayne (pradagy) was sick on LOUD. this guy needs to take a closer listen

  • Mr Mogul

    This guy is really wack. Don't understand how he's been around for so long. Maybe I'm missing something....

  • Kay W

    I like tech 9ne but this is a big disapointment

  • KEVKCTOSD

    Not the worst tech album. Bein from KC Ive heard most the shit that techs done an honestly if you knew anything about recording the album is mixed sick an the song concepts are pretty dope.

  • JUST A MAN

    If you like Tech or are a fan do yourself a favour and stay clear of this album. It may be better then other people's albums but it's way to low from Tech.

  • theMICO

    Honestly it's the worst Tech N9ne collabo, Krizz Kaliko's verses sucked, along with quite a few of the other peoples. And even though it is a Collab I wish I could of heard more of Tech, I feel like it isn't even a Tech cd. Some of the songs are very wack, but I really like some of them. I have listened to the cd 5 times straight through each time, but I just feel like I can't get into it like most of his other shit. Tech's verses are pretty sick for the most part and I like Phenom a lot. But some of the other people's lack of skills really water down Tech's album. 3/5 because I only like two thirds of the songs.

  • Indiemuzik

    Personally I think Tech did with this album what Jayz did with "The Blueprint 2". He basically got off from putting out alot of successful material and decided to put out an album that wasn't risky in terms of content. I'm sure he'll recuperate on his next solo album and it's not like less people will go to his concerts because of this.

  • Therealrickross11

    this isnt that good from tech , its got a couple alright songs that bump but other than that it all sounds the same . his older stuff is better

  • Yeller

    Has sum bangers.. hiphopdx is mostly rite just a little hard.. because it's a collabo's album.. kinda like tech's version of a mixtape..

  • nice...

    tech must be pissed paid all that money for ads and got a so so ratin dx. aye somebody recommend a good movie for me to watch. i'm on the net and bored

    • film

      WAKING LIFE, zeitegeist all good concious -expanding films

    • nice...

      these guys @ dx are incredible they just wont stop fuckin with me. tech must be pissed paid all that money for ads and got a so so ratin from dx. is what i originally typed. let me tell you how it works. as you type, there some dumb nigga on the other watchin that and editin it as fast as possible. if you have a brain, you can figure your way around that and get your message out like this. that is unless they delte the comment completely

  • c_mizzle

    I would've given this a 4, but 5 'cause it needs bumpin' up!

  • Dub_Es

    hot baby shit, surprised tech actually stooped to this level. and "pu wah wah" is unlistenable even as a joke song

  • tylerguy02

    Forgot to rate it.

  • tylerguy02

    @ Technicitian : They reviewed Areola the same on the last album. I know these people don't listen to the whole album because they have a hard time really reviewing albums as a whole here. They probably listen to the first verse in songs and then skip all the skits. This one is not as good as the last two, but still enjoyable considering it is at least something from Tech.

  • Tech None

    Tech None is straight sweaty ass cheek/butter sauce reduction.

  • on 2nd thought

    I think these collabo albums are a bad idea. Devin The Dude is the only guest any non-Strange Music fans give a fuck about. Jay Rock, seriously? "O.G." is tight, but the rest sounds like hogwash.

    • FLIPPIN BURRRDZZ

      dawg Jay Rock was one of the few collabs on this album that went hard. matter fact imma bump "Paper" right now. so fuck yo thoughts nigga!

  • Technitian.

    The reviewer doesnt understand the pu wah wah was actually a joke track, like areolas was on sickology, tech tends to do that on his collbos, instead of actually looking into the song as legitmate.. the reviewer should have done researched actually viewed it as a joke like it was.., meh, i give this album a 4 could have went without a few tracks other then that it was fire.
