Kansas City recording artist Tech N9ne, who dubs himself “The #1 Independent Rapper in the World,” has sold over two million albums via his co-owned Strange Music record label, which in recent memory has also been home to the likes of Hip-Hop legends Brotha Lynch Hung and MURS, as well as modern acts such as Yelawolf’s protege Rittz, and TDE’s Jay Rock.
Tech N9ne has collaborated with a plethora of well known rap and rock artists such as Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Serj Tankian (SOAD), as well as respected veterans such as Gary Clark Jr., the late Roger Troutman, and even the remaining members of The Doors. Even movie star and former WWE Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson occasionally shouts Tech out on social media!
The biggest draw from Tech N9ne aside from his music and introspective songwriting and subject matter has been his live shows! Clocking in 2-3 annual tours peppered with multiple sell outs, Tech even plays his share of major rap festivals, and rock events such as Knotfest and Rock on the Range. The author of the track “Riotmaker” is long overdue to play his first major Chicago music fest-RIOT FEST!
