In the video, Tech is confined in a psych ward and he lists off all his accomplishments with rapid fire to the non-believing mental patients surrounding him. This includes the fact that he really has a song with the late Tupac Shakur.
N9NA is a direct response to Tech’s fans asking for a project, no features — J. Cole style.
“Fans have been asking for an album centered around just Tech N9ne with minimal features, so I give them N9NA,” the most successful indie rapper in the game said in a press release. “This is me, wholeheartedly. It’s something for my die-hard fans and an introduction for all newcomers. I’m rapping like never before – like I’ve never sold a Gold or Platinum record.”
Last year, the Kansas City rhymer dropped his platinum-selling album Planet, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Rap, R&B/Hip Hop and Indie charts.
