[HIP-HOP] There’s a simple reason why it seems Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne is always in town: The 41-year-old MC tours more than any other rapper in the game. Last year alone, Tecca Ninna performed 90 shows in 99 days—that’s a lot of shitty tour food to consume. On top of his performances, which are sweat-slathered romps fueled by battle chants and face paint, Tech has an amazingly consistent track record on wax. Many of his songs—“Einstein,” “I’m a Playa,” “That Box”—are shadowy club anthems as danceable as they are disturbing. The cover for his newest album, Something Else, which is set to drop this summer, depicts a black-eyed Tech on fire, his heart adorned with angel wings. I’m not sure what this means, but it undoubtedly signifies more good music is on the way.
