As one of independent Hip Hop’s most successful and respect emcees, Strange Music’s Tech N9ne has performed everywhere around the country, but for the Kansas City-born rapper there’s simply no place like home.
On May 18, Tech N9ne will be releasing K.O.D. Tour: Live in Kansas City, the result of his November 21 homecoming performance last year. The DVD features footage of his performance, as well as performances from the entire Strange Music crew (Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Big Scoob) in front of nearly 3,000 concert attendees. K.O.D. Tour: Live in Kansas City marks the second DVD performance Tech N9ne has released, with Strictly Strange being released last year from his “Strictly Strange Tour” in 2008.

“As few may know, Starang has been serving an 18-month prison sentence in upstate PA for illegal drug possession…While I won’t dive into the specifics of his case, Starang maintains his innocence and looks forward to appealing the charges when he comes home in mid August,” he said.
The post also goes into Buckshot’s recent visit with Starang, who says he may have plans to continue a rap career once he is released. You can read the whole blog here.
