Tech N9ne is no stranger to divulging his internal struggles to the world through his music and his latest music video, “EF U (Easier For You),” is a message of hope to those struggling with mental health issues.
The Strange Music mogul’s latest video is the fourth in a visual album series Tech has been releasing called “Kathartic.” Recruiting the help of Krizz Kaliko and Jelly Roll, the most successful indie rapper in the game is confined in a psych ward set up for a crime he didn’t commit resulting in thoughts of depression and suicide.

Krizz Kaliko and Jelly Roll provide angelic harmonies to the anthem of suicide prevention. The featured rappers each use their verse in the song to highlight the point of view of the loved ones left behind after someone takes their own life. The video is a powerful message of hope, encouraging those struggling to seek help and think of others before making a fatal decision.
“EF U (Easier For You)” marks Tech’s third record to get the visual treatment from his recently released 21-track album, N9NA, shared on April 19. Tech released the video for the album’s single, “Disparagement” on May 3 and “Like I Ain’t” in April, both becoming episodes in his visual album series.
Tech N9ne is currently in the middle of his nationwide It Goes Up tour featuring special guest appearances from Krizz Kaliko, Dax, ¡Mayday! and Ubi of Ces Cru.
