When it comes to Kansas City’s music scene, there is unarguably one artist that stands out and will come to the minds of those familiar with their music and those who are not…Tech N9ne.
Tech N9ne is by far the most popular, seasoned, and decorated rapper, or artist for that matter, to come out of “The City” to this date. Hands down. None other can compare. All you have to do is check his resume: Quality music? Check. Industry Notoriety? Check. Longevity? Check. A loyal fan base locally, nationally, and internationally? Check. World tours? Check. Originality? Versatility? Creativity? Check! Check! Check! Over a million (1,000,000) copies sold??? CHECK!!!
If by chance you have OD’d on downers and are sleep on Tech N9ne, let us put you up on game. He is an extremely talented and gifted rapper, a native from the streets of Kansas City that has been putting it down on the microphone since the days of way back, making it official “He is not new to this, he is TRUE to this!”…Tech N9ne is also an accomplished businessman and owner/CEO of his successful Independent Rap Label/Music Company “STRANGE MUSIC”, which features a deep roster of new and established artists who ALL GO HARD, such as Kutt Kalhoun, Krizz Kaliko, Big Scoob, and Brotha Lynch Hung to name a few.
Tech N9ne has been representing K.C. since day one and there aren’t many people who can name an artist that has been in it or doing it in “The City” longer than he has. With super hot singles that completely took over the local clubs and radio like “Let’s Get Fucked Up”, the hometown anthem “It’s Alive”, and the best recognized who you dealing wit “Blown Away”, off of his previous chart topping album “Sickology 101”, for which he received Independent Artist of the Year ( ), he has established himself as an ever evolving force leading the Kansas City music movement.
For anyone who has eyes to see, ears to hear, and knows the biz-it is plain and clear that Tech N9ne is on a mission, which just may be to take over the Rap Game and bring the crown home, to KC. If anyone can do it, he most definitely is able.
