Independent Hip-Hop icon Tech N9nedebuted his new video for the song “Fragile” featuring Kendrick Lamar, MAYDAY, andKendall Morgan via a release on MTV.com yesterday morning at 6 a.m. The track & video have caught on fire! Beating out the likes of Miley Cyrus, Teen Mom, and Real World Ex-plosion for that number one spot (you know you said that out loud in your best Ludacris voice), the fans are letting the world know who they really want. While the mainstream artists are busy running from the police in rented Lambos and attempting to twerk with a pancake a**, Strange Music and the world of independent Hip-Hop is recognizing one of it’s legends. With a nation wide 70+ city tour spanning April 9th until June 28th featuring Freddie Gibbs, Krizz Kaliko, Jarren Benton of Funk Volume, and The Psych Ward Druggies, this powerhouse has just lit the fuse and set a high standard for all other artists to reach.
Legendary independent rapper Tech N9ne stopped through the 414 today (10/14/13) courtesy of his Something Else Tour. He and the Strange Music crew took over The Rave/Eagles Ballroom as they tend to do every so often. He was gracious enough to take some time before the show to chop it up with a few of Milwaukee’s media outlets. The Illixer was lucky enough to be amongst said few. Check it out below as he speaks on: his current album, the nature of the tour, being a vampire, and much more.
Poetry and Hip-Hop have always had a close relationship. After all, music is basically just poetry tailored to a beat with a hook thrown into the mix. A lot of artists even got their starts via the literary world and then transitioned over into music. So it comes as no surprise that a poet would find inspiration in a rapper. This is the case for the latest selection by Milwaukee based expressive soul Tiki Da Poet. As she is a fan of popular yet controversial underground/indie rapper Tech N9ne, she was moved to dedicate a piece to him. Find out what she had to say in honor of the peculiar Kansas City emcee after the break.
