After speaking with HipHopDX late last month about the prospects of collaborating with Lil Wayne, Strange Music co-founder and Kansas City, Missouri veteran emcee Tech N9ne confirmed this week that the two finally met.



If anybody got anything bad to say bout Wayne, don’t say it to me cause thats a real nigga I just visited in there.less than a minute ago via HTC Peep

I really feel that it’s validated that [the man who calls himself ‘the best rapper alive’] thinks I’m an elite emcee. That feels so good to me. People hold him up there. Even Eminem said he was jealous of him,” Tech told HipHopDX in an August feature. In that conversation, the K.O.D.-maker revealed that the two had never met, despite a mutual respect.

Lil Wayne’s August Funkmaster Flex interview, whereby the Young Money Records head claiming he wanted to work with Tech N9ne and Andre 3000 prompted this ongoing discussion.

Earlier this summer, Tech N9ne released The Gates Mixed Plate, his third “Collabos” album.
